Pedders Suspension is Australia's No1 suspension and steering parts manufacturer that has played a prominent role in the Australian automotive aftermarket industry for over 65 years.

Commenced in 1950 as Pedders Die Cast Welding Service by Roy Pedder, the business found his niche in the automotive market in repairing old type lever arm shock absorbers. By the late 1950’s the business had 13 staff repairing over 3000 shock absorbers per month. In 1972, Roy’s eldest son Ron Pedder, took over the company. Around this time Ron took the next significant step and utilising what the company had learnt from repairing & reconditioning shock absorbers and began designing and ultimately manufacturing its own. He also opened Pedders first Pedders stores to install the parts he designed and had manufactured. This lead to many more new stores via Pedders Store franchising.

Pedders is now headed up by Ron’s eldest son Mark Pedder who took on the role as Managing Director in 2006. This large, multinational automotive company has come a long way from a suburban Melbourne welding shop, and most if not all of this growth has been due to the determination, dedication and foresight of our most important asset - our people. Today Pedders has over 120 stores throughout Australia serviced by 5 distribution centres.

Since commencing international sales into the UK & USA in 2006, today Pedders has company warehouses in the UK, Poland, UAE, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Malaysia, Sth Africa & the USA.
