Originally established in 1958, as a Melbourne based suspension parts manufacturer, named Jacob Spring Works. The company in 1982 took shape as JSW Parts, (short for Jacob Spring Works) to design and supply leaf and coil springs for cars, trucks, buses and 4×4 vehicles. JSW Parts soon became well known as a manufacturer and supplier of suspension parts all around the world.

In 1988 JSW Parts launched the Ironman 4×4 brand of springs and suspension parts in response to the increasing popularity of 4×4 vehicles, recognizing that standard suspension systems alone were not designed to cope with additional loads of bull bars, winches and extra fuel tanks.
Driven by explosive sales of 4×4’s, in 2004 the Ironman 4×4 range of products expanded quickly to meet the demand of off road users seeking solutions which would allow their vehicles to go off road loaded with accessories such as winches, recovery equipment, protective bars, canopies, lighting and electrical upgrades.

Today the vast continent of Australia serves as the perfect testing ground for Ironman 4×4 products, so whether crossing the outback in search of adventure or just driving the children to school in your local suburb, Ironman 4×4 can offer quality and value for money.
Many fleet and military organisations throughout the world have acknowledged the quality design and manufacture of Ironman 4×4 products. Together with these serious solutions, Ironman 4×4 products are also chosen the world over by offroad competition teams and drivers, and have successfully completed the Dakar Rally.

Ironman 4×4 products are stocked at our many warehouses including Melbourne, Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth. All warehouses are computer linked to our National Call Centre at the Melbourne Head Office, whilst Ironman 4x4s international warehousing and offices are headed up by Ironman 4 by 4 Thailand.
