About Us

S. Heller Enterprises was established in 1975 by Robert and Stephanie Heller in Melbourne, Australia.

It was a time when the only local Stump Sock producer has just gone out of business, which left the Australian consumer with the one choice, an imported sock, which was an expensive alternative.

The Australian Department of Veterans' Affairs in Canberra has set out to find a new Australian manufacturer for its supply of Stump Socks.

Enter the Hellers. With their vast knowledge in the knitting field and professional expertise with knitting machines, combined with some valuable contacts within Australian wool industry, they happily welcomed the new challenge of manufacturing an All-Australian Stump Sock with the brand name 'Heller'.

Robert and Stephanie Heller did a great job not only in the design and manufacture of the Heller stump sock, but also making sure it was affordable without having to compromise on quality.

Within a short period of time 'Heller' Stump Socks were selling in neighbouring countries such as Singapore and Hong Kong.

Almost half a century later the Heller legacy and tradition continues with, Robert and Stephnie's daughter, Naomi and her husband Eli who have been in charge since taking over the reins in 1989.

Recent operational change - Temporary Closure Periods - Introduced November 2022.

My wife, Naomi and I have been nurturing our small family business for the past 33 years. We have now reached a time in our lives where we would like to slow down a little and spend more time travelling this great country of ours.

We hope to continue serving the amputee community for many years to come, however, from time to time a Temporary Closure Period will be in place, usually for a duration of 3-4 weeks. Details of a forthcoming closure Period will be posted on the Home page.

We will always be available to discuss any query you might have by email. Purchase orders can still be placed during a Closure Period and all paid orders will be processed on our resumption of trading on a first-in-first-served basis.

If you have an urgent requirement during a Closure Period, Please let us know by email as we may be able to arrange dispatch of your order sooner, if currenly in stock.

We are grateful for your continued support and trust this arrangement will not cause you any great inconvenience.

For further information regarding these changes please don't hesitate to contact us.
