Founded in 1942, the North Bar Company was the first UK manufacturer of torque wrenches. Later on, Norbar as we know it today was born when, driven by the need for tools in the field of torque control equipment, the founders of the company, Bill Brodey and Ernest Thornitt, started expanding their business. Today, Norbar is a market leader in the manufacturing, transportation, aerospace, mining, energy generation and oil and gas industries. Norbar tools, such as torque screwdrivers and wrenches, reaction accessories, as well as manual, pneumatic and electronic torque multipliers, have become synonymous with state-of-the-art technology, reliability and utmost precision. It is the company’s firm family values and vision of becoming a number one tool manufacturer that makes Norbar tools stand out. Focusing mainly on its customers’ needs, Norbar is passionate about providing its users with premium-quality equipment that will meet all their demands. Operating in 20 cities across Australia, Gasweld Tool Centre, Australia’s premium tool store, provides you with a wide array of high-performance Norbar tools at affordable prices.
