The origins of Radius Benders go back to New Year’s eve of 1974 when a fitter and turner by trade from Austria became stranded in Brisbane because of a car breakdown, and needed to find work.
Finding a job with a local exhaust shop, he soon learned that the owners were negotiating to import a tube and pipe bending machine for the business from the United States. There was sufficient machinery available in the business to build a tube bending machine, so it was agreed that they make one. It wasn’t very fancy but it worked. It was eagerly accepted by the muffler trade in Australia and Radius Benders became a business entity, manufacturing and marketing tube and pipe bending machines.
From this lowly beginning Radius Benders grew to become a well respected manufacturer of tube and pipe bending machines in Australia, at one time manufacturing over 10 standard models which are used in the exhaust, furniture, engineering and vehicle accessories industries to name but a few. Its expertise is in customizing its machines for its customers’ special requirements. It seems that no two customers have exactly the same needs. Radius Benders machines have been exported to countries as far as Mauritius and the United Kingdom, to countries in Asia and many outposts in the Pacific region.
As a result of rapidly advancing technology, the small Australian market and the local manufacturing costs, Radius Benders established a relationship with one of the most technologically advanced tube bending machine manufacturers in the world, Chiao Sheng Machinery Co (CSM) in Taiwan and since 2003, has been the sole distributor of CSM Tube bending machines in Australia and New Zealand.
In 1991, Radius benders came under new ownership with a team of more than 20 dedicated employees. During the 1990’s the owners of Radius Benders added the product lines of Top Line Concrete Tools, Botanic Niche, Funcourt and The Letterbox Man as associate businesses.
In addition to manufacturing and supplying tube and pipe bending machines and associated products, Radius Benders also undertake contract tube bending and fabrication, general engineering, and manufacture a number of metal parts and products for a variety of customers and industries.
