Hobson Engineering was established by Mr Ron Hobson in 1935 at Alexandria. Although only having a small product range, the name became synonymous with precision and quality. The major lines were bicycle axles (no imported bicycles in those days!) and roller skates, with "ROLLERPLANE" being revered as the best skate available. The fact that Ron was the Australian roller skating champion using his own skates of course helped the cause.

During World War II the plant was operating 24 hours a day, producing aircraft components and boasting one of the few approved aeronautical inspection departments.

Hobson Engineering has expanded significantly from its early roots in a local based Sydney manufacturing operation to now being the largest fastener company in its chosen product range in Australia. This position has been gained through building strong partnerships with suppliers and customers.
