ABC Mandrel Bending was started in 1998, as an extension to Gardbar, to mandrel bend alloy components used in the manufacturing of our brand of Bullbars.

Our jobs can be between 1 to 1000 units; no job too small, none too big. We generally only charge a minor setup fee if the job is required immediately.

We are a supplier to the Automotive and Marine industries; our Mandrel bent tube components are used in the manufacture of large trucks thru to Rollover Protection Hoops for Mine Vehicles, to exhaust systems for bikes and high performance cars.

Our Aluminium and Steel rack hoops and Ute trade racks are supplied to most of the Aftermarket Ute Tray manufacturers in Victoria, as well as Alloy and Steel tubing for the Bullbar industry.

Our Polished 316 Stainless Steel tube bending is used from Houseboat railings, Leisure Boat Bow rails, Custom Swimming pool entry rails down to chair frames. Our railings appear from the South Pacific Islands to Hamilton Is. down to Phillip Is.

We are a supplier to the Balustrade industry with bent components in Stainless, Aluminium, Galvanised or Powder coated Steel. We can supply complete handrails, or components to fabricate on-site with the minimum amount of welding.

We stock a range of extended 180 degree bends with 350 mmm tails in 2’ and 1.5” Stainless Steel tube as well as 40 nb. black or galvanised pipe.

We also manufacture custom one of, Internal or External access rails for the elderly or infirm, in a tube size that fits the hand. As these are generally required fairly urgently, we can normally complete within 5 working days.
