Ironman 4x4’s roots are in metallurgy, specifically spring making, the roots of the current company in a Melbourne based suspension parts manufacturer, named Jacob Spring Works, set up in 1958. The next big change was in 1982 when that company became JSW Parts, ( short for Jacob Spring Works) to design and supply leaf and coil springs for cars, trucks, buses and 4×4 vehicles. JSW Parts soon became well known as a manufacturer and supplier of suspension parts all around the world. In 1988 JSW Parts launched the Ironman 4×4 brand of springs and suspension parts in response to the increasing popularity of 4×4 vehicles… and the rest, as they say, is history. Recognising that standard suspension systems alone were not designed to cope with additional loads of bull bars, winches and extra fuel tanks, and driven by explosive sales of 4×4s, in 2004 the Ironman 4×4 range of products expanded quickly to meet the demand. Today the vast continent of Australia serves as the perfect testing ground for Ironman 4×4 products, and many fleet and military organisations throughout the world have acknowledged the quality design and manufacture of Ironman 4×4 products. Together with these serious solutions, Ironman 4×4 products are also chosen the world over by offroad competition teams and drivers, and have successfully completed the Dakar Rally. Ironman 4×4 provide great value for money solutions for all sectors within the 4×4 industry, with a versatile and forward thinking approach, whether it be recreational, military or commercial use we at Ironman 4×4 can safely say that you are using world class products.
