The history of Henry Bros
Henry Bros Saws Australia came about from very small
In 1964 the Henry family started a hardware
store in Vineyard NSW, they also built a small sawmill under the name of
Henry Bros & co (a Family company name that goes back to the 1950ís) to
supply Vineyard Hardware with its own structural & fencing timbers for
As time went on the sawmill expanded its
operations into joinery & window manufacturing & included the production
of mouldings, architraves, axe, pick & shovel handles, steam bent chair
backs & sulky/gig shafts for the totting industries.
As the timber production grew, the need for
in house sharpening & the manufacture of specialised tooling become
apparent. In 1978 the first of the machinery was purchased to service
In 1982 Henry Bros & Co started taking on contract bandsaw sharpening for
other timber yards in Sydney, as time moved on the saw shop expanded its
capacity to circular saws, knife grinding & profile grinding, which lead
to even more outside sharpening from joinery/cabinet makers, frame & truss
manufactures pallet makers etc, to the point where it over took the timber
production side of the business.
In 1998 Henry Bros & co started a new
company called Henry Bros Saws to more reflect the nature of its
business but still hold the connection to the family name.
In 2000, Henry Bros really started its expansion into state of the art CNC
machinery from bandsaws to
TCT circular saws, knives, router bits and a growing list of products that
continues to expand today.
