About Us

Company History

• 1949 – My grandfather commenced working with wire as an apprentice.

• 1961 – He began to work more specifically producing wire products, of which we still make a vast array to this day.

• 1970 – My father joined my grandfather and they commenced their own wire product manufacturing business in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

• 1980 – We moved the operation to larger premises in Keilor East, Melbourne where our first chain machine was purchased and installed. Within 5 years we had grown modestly by a further 4 machines, making mainly jack chains and pre assembled hanging basket chains.

• 1987 – We again moved the chain operation to new larger premises.

• 1990 – We acquired the Able Cooke chain plant, increasing our range dramatically to include knotted (coil), chandelier, picture frame and more jack chains.

• 1993 – We acquired a ball chain machine and also began importing some chains from overseas.

• 1994 – We again required more room to house the ever expanding chain business and once again moved to larger premises.

• 1995 – Within less than one year, the company was again out growing its premises and we undertook a major company restructuring and disposed of much redundant equipment.

• 2001 – We installed a modern and complete chain plant from Germany and also acquired the jewellery chain plant from Austral Chains here in Melbourne.

2010 -  I the 3rd generation joined the company and worked on improving the business’ online presence and marketing so as to not only accommodate other companies but also ensure we service the general public while maintaining out competitive pricing!

Chain.com.au is now the largest light chain manufacturer in all of Australasia (with over 30 chain machines manufacturing in Melbourne, Australia) and having sold chain as far as the USA, Norway and Central Africa but we still believe in “Quality, Service & Price”. We hope we can be of some assistance to you with your requirements of either chain, fittings, wire products or hardware.
