Com­pany his­tory

NZ4WD - - NEWS -

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.
