    Australian Manufacturer

    Established in 1997, Turbosmart was built on humble beginnings by CEO & Founder Nic Cooper. It was his pure passion for race performance that led him to design the very first product, a BOV type 1, which he hand-crafted on a steel lathe, from a small garage in Sydney, Australia.

    For many years the company witnessed significant success on a local scene. It quickly established itself as one of the most prolific brands amongst industry professionals and wasn’t long before the businesses fame spread, and exports started into other markets.

  • Growing Success

This was a necessary step to gain control of the growing quality, volume, and prototyping demands. Turbosmart now operates nine CNC machines 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Yes! it still uses those original two machines.
