"We at Arbortech love what we do and this is evident in the quality and creativity of our products. Our tools begin with an idea and are developed through a process of prototyping and testing in collaboration with users, engineers and product designers."
Kevin Inkster - Founder, CEO
Our customers are open minded, curious and enjoy trying something new. It is our intention that they be able to embrace their creativity through our products. We are proud of our Australian heritage and are passionate about delivering high quality, safe and effective products that are a joy to use.
Almost three decades ago Arbortech was established in Nannup, a small country town in Australia's south west, where Kevin Inkster's passion for woodworking and inventing merged.
After much experimentation, Kevin made the first prototype "Woodcarver Blade" in 1983. It worked so well and was such fun to use that he decided to carve a whole chair from a large tree trunk. This blade later went on to become the first commercialised product which initially launched Arbortech.
The first Woodcarver Blade
As an inventor Kevin is always playing with ideas for the research and development team to work with, resulting in great products that can truly change the way we work or play.
Our design process
The continual development of the woodworking and Allsaw product range has resulted in a range of tools with a reputation for quality and excellence that are loved by users worldwide.
The Arbortech team is a family. We value everyone for their diverse backgrounds, experiences, styles and approach to ideas. Through trust and support we build solid relationships and team spirit.
We have a passion for challenging the norm, looking for new ways to improve not only our products, but our business practices, processes and systems. It starts with our innovators, engineers and designers, through to our skilled production crew, sales and admin, creative marketing and dedicated customer service.
We value our relationships with suppliers and distributors who help us to respond quickly to customer demand and feedback. Enjoying our lives while making wonderful products that help make the world a better place, is what drives us.
