  • The first cooler sold under the trade mark Esky was manufactured by Malley's Ltd, a Sydney company, in 1952. By 1960, it was claimed that half a million Australian households owned an Esky brand cooler which then featured the design enhancements of a lock-down lid, a drain hole to eliminate melted ice, a bottle opener, and two-tone colour combinations. In 1984, Nylex first manufactured Esky brand coolers in plastic, with some metal components. Since then, construction has continued to shift from the original metal and cork to plastics and CFC-free, foamed-in-place rigid polyurethane.
