Australian Barbell Company this month celebrates 75 years in business. The company is Australia’s premier manufacturer and supplier to the health, fitness, and gymnasium industries. Australian Barbell Company offers an extensive range of premium, commercial quality dumbbells, barbells, weightlifting, functional training, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, Crossfit, strength, conditioning, rehababilitation and prehabiliation equipment. Since its inception the company has been innovating, expanding and perfecting its product range to meet the fitness industries ever changing requirements.
Australian Barbell Company began in 1942 as a hobby business in the Moorabbin garage of Mr Bill Pole. A move to South Melbourne followed after the war. A friend, Roy Langford, manufactured the barbells and dumbbells for Bill at his small engineering business (Roysen) in the back of a mechanics workshop in Black Rock, before moving to a factory in Cheltenham in the 1950's.
The company slowly began to establish a reputation as a manufacturer of dumbbells and barbells which Roysen Engineering continued to produce. In 1989 Robert Langford (Roy's son) and his wife Denise, purchased Australian Barbell Company as part of a diversification plan. The company evolved quickly and became Australia's leading specialist supplier of weightlifting and strength training equipment. Australian Barbell Company is presently owned and operated by the third generation of the Langford family - Wayne Langford & Jenny Harding (Denise and Roberts children), from a large manufacturing & warehousing plant in Mordialloc, Melbourne, Australia.
Australian Barbell Company is extremely proud of its prestigious reputation earned over 75 years. It takes particular pride in its commitment to manufacture Australian made products thereby ensuring superior quality, fast turn-around times, and individual customisation within a market flooded with imported equipment.
The Australian Barbell Company supplies its extensive product range to a diverse national customer base including commercial gymnasiums, elite training venues, franchised gymnasium chains, personal training studios, schools, the defence force, crossfit boxes, Olympic & Powerlifting clubs, home users and national sporting clubs. The business also proudly exports to countries including Indonesia, Korea, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore. Australian Barbell Company is committed to Australian made manufacturing providing a competitive edge over many of its industry rivals. It continues to strive to maintain its position as the leading industry health and fitness equipment supplier well beyond its initial 75 years.
