Celebrating IBA’s 30th Anniversary and sharing a cool story

20th May 2020

“There’s not many people who do what we do, in fact, we’re the only Indigenous cryogenics company in Australia” – Marcia Edwards, Director of The Cryogenics Group.

As part of IBA’s 30th anniversary, they are celebrating by sharing some of the stories that have made IBA who they are. And this week we’re shouting out to one of their coolest stories – The Cryogenics Group .

“Growing up with a Mum and Dad that work in cryogenics is super different. Everyone thinks we’re all scientists!”

Joining the family business can be a rite of passage for many people, but for Marcia Edwards, this journey involved something that many people could only dream of.

The Cryogenics Group was founded by Marcia’s parents in 1993 with the help of a loan from IBA. Over the past 25 years, the business has grown from strength to strength by providing liquid nitrogen and gas to IVF clinics, blood banks, medical research facilities, medical centres and even restaurants.

This family-run business spans across two generations and Marcia is hoping it may even have a third in the future.

“I hope my daughters will one day be part of the company too. That would be three generations of The Cryogenics Group which is pretty amazing for any small business but especially for an Indigenous business.”
