About Us

Pedders - A Legacy of Innovation and Quality  

Pedders began its journey in 1950, founded by Roy Pedder in Melbourne. From our origins as a small die-cast welding shop, Pedders has grown into Australia's leading brake, steering, and suspension specialist, extending our reach across over 40 countries. Our evolution from reconditioning shock absorbers to developing a comprehensive range of over 20000 stock-keeping units and 160000 vehicle applications is a testament to our commitment to innovation and quality. 

We currently have over 120 outlets throughout Australia comprising of stores and authorised dealerships, and we have an international distribution network that operates across Europe, North America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. We also support and service other brands in Australia and globally through private labels and our work with fleet, mining and defence customers.

Our Mission: Better Journeys  

At Pedders, our mission is to enhance every journey. Whether it's everyday commutes, adventurous off-roading, or professional racing, we aim to provide safety, reliability, and performance through our products and services. We envision a world where every journey with a vehicle is not just about reaching a destination but doing so with utmost safety and comfort.

Bred From Motorsport – Our Managing Director Is A Rally Driver!

At Pedders, our passion for motorsport runs deep, tracing back to our active involvement in Rally since the 1970s. This rich heritage in motorsport isn't just a part of our history; it's embedded in our DNA and influences how we innovate and design our products today. We take immense pride in announcing that all Supercar teams trust Pedders SupaShock shock absorbers and Pedders Coil Springs, a testament to our commitment to excellence and performance in the most demanding conditions. We are also proud partners with Erebus Motorsport - the championship team for 2023! 

Tailored Fleet Solutions For Mining

Pedders is proud to offer a complete payload solution tailored to suit fleet vehicles operating in the Australian mining and materials sector. We can tailor a package to suit our customer’s requirements based on the types of vehicles in their fleet, the intended use and typical vehicle load. Pedders’ Federal Government-approved GVM upgrades are fit for purpose and compliant with the road rules, OH&S and insurance requirements. To ensure our products are up for the challenge, they have been specially designed for durability, engineered to harsh mining conditions and tested in the toughest environments.

We Support Emergency Services

Pedders is proud to assist the local community by providing Emergency Services Vehicles with suspension and brake upgrades to ensure they are fit for purpose. Pedders has fitted its Federal Government-approved GVM+ upgrade kit to ambulance and fire brigade vehicles to ensure their passengers are safe while on and off the road. These vehicles are often fitted with additional equipment such as bullbars and winches which add significant weight and impact the vehicle’s suspension control and braking performance. A Pedders GVM+ upgrade increases the legal payload capacity of the vehicle and ensures it is safe and compliant with OH&S laws, insurance requirements and road safety standards.

We’ve Supplied Solutions To Military Customers

Pedders Defense is operated by our elite-level specialist engineering team who are experts in mining, defense and armoured vehicle undercar solutions. Our precisely crafted suspension and brake products are fit for purpose and built to last in the toughest environments. Pedders can offer an off-the-shelf or bespoke solution depending on the defense application; our extensive product offering includes shock absorbers, coilovers, leaf springs, coil springs and brake components. Pedders Defense programs have been successfully deployed across the United Nations and selected defense fleets.

Pedders Exports To More Than 40 Countries
