There are some things you just can't replicate.
Being Australian made is one of them, nothing compares to Australian workmanship.
In a world were their is an abundance of cheap imported goods, we have decided to create a product line of Australian made goods that are high quality, locally made and are competitively priced.
These lines include our Squat racks, Flat Benches, Incline benches, Cast-iron barbells, Cast-iron Dumbbells, Kettlebells, Safety arms, J-hooks, Dip bars, Parllette bars, Rubber flooring, rack extensions and more.
While we recognize importers have their place, it is our mission to have as many of our products Australian made and owned as possible.
There are some product lines such as Bumper plates, Rubber coated weight plates, Hex dumbbells and Olympic barbells were it is not economical to manufacture these goods locally.
To give you some insight, we have been quoted over $100,000 just to procure tooling for just one size of bumper plate. Then you have to consider the higher cost of materials and labor domestically. Rubber alone on these lines costs between $8-$10/kg locally. We would love to explore this avenue in time.
However, consumers are not prepared to pay the price to bridge the gap on these items, so we have had to outsource what we consider to be some of the highest quality items in these areas from well establish factories offshore with a long term track record of manufacturing high quality goods.
Ultimately our mission is to produce a 100% Australian made product range, that is fairly priced, high quality and will support local jobs and the community.
We want to work with local businesses to deliver on our mission statement, so if you are reading this and would like to work with us, reach out using the contact us.
