Stephan Jelicich

Bottle, Screwcap and Carton Technical Support & Sales

Stephan is the co-founder and owner of Chandler Glass & Packaging. He has 35 years experience within the wine industry - across wine production, bottling and supply of winemaking consumable to the Australasian wine sector. Having had hands on wine making experience and then owning and operating companies that held agencies for Stelvin screwcaps (8 years, 1997 — 2005) and Bertolaso bottling lines (6 years, 2001 — 2007), he is considered an expert in screwcap closures and BVS mouth standards, cap application and bottling. With partners, Stephan established Alvis, the first screwcap manufacturing business in New Zealand (2005 — 2007), later sold to Guala, Italy.

In late 2007, with Emmanuelle, he established Chandler Resources – with the view of it becoming a pre-eminent supplier of quality and value driven wine & beverage packaging. His principal focus is always on providing timely technical support to Chandler’s clients and over-seeing the implementation of quality control initiatives at our supplier factories– which has lead to the realization of the company’s principal objective.

Administration

Emmanuelle is a co-founder of Chandler. She originates from France and for several years was the Paris office international sales & supply coordinator for Stelvin caps (then owned by Pechiney /Alcan). Her depth of experience gained in administration, product documentation and accounts makes her an invaluable asset to this organisation (I had to say that, because she’s the boss’ wife).
