A Bending Company is celebrating twenty years of manufacturing operations in Dandenong, Victoria.
Since starting in May 1992, A Bending Company has grown from a small, start-up company, to one of the leading metal bending companies in Australia. Providing its unique bending services to many different organisations, from SME’s to large multi-national manufacturers and everything in between, the company is at the forefront of the most demanding industry sectors; Defence, Rail, Offshore, Mining and Infrastructure to name a few. An established ISO 9001 Quality Endorsed company and Defence Accredited Supplier, A Bending Company acts as the “Bending Department” for numerous Australian and overseas manufacturers, who need to deliver results, contain costs and maintain the highest quality standards.
Reflecting on the past 20 years, Founder and Managing Director, Peter Angelico, recalled some of the struggles of the early days, “Starting from scratch without any prior knowledge of the industry was a massive challenge and considering that 95% of start-ups fail in the first five years, to be still going strong after twenty is something that we are all proud of. We have so much to be thankful for: to our customers for their ongoing support; to the industry Associations such as SEMMA and AIDN for their encouragement and assistance; to our suppliers for their service; and most importantly, to our staff for their dedication and commitment.”
He adds: “Over the past 20 years, we have all seen many changes: the economy has struggled in recent times and manufacturing is going through major upheavals and we are well placed to take advantage of these changes because we can adapt to customer demands quickly. Our business is driven by what the customer wants; after all it’s the customer who pays the wages”
Team Leader Shane, who has recently clocked up 15 years with the company, commented “A Bending is a great place to work, we get looked after by the boss and all the guys get on really well and we always seem to have plenty of work. With all the stuff in the papers about the carbon tax and everything else going on I’d rather be working here than anywhere else”
Over the next few years the company will further develop opportunities in the booming market sectors such as mining and offshore as well as some of its traditional markets.
