  • Our Origins

    Australian Manufacturer

    Established in 1997, Turbosmart is an Australian manufacturer. It was built on humble beginnings by CEO & Founder Nic Cooper. His pure passion for race performance led him to design the first Turbosmart product, a Blow-off Valve (BOV) type1. Nic hand-crafted the BOV type 1 on a steel lathe from a small garage in Sydney, Australia.

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

  • Growing Success

    First CNC Machines Introduced into The Business

    Throughout June 2002, Turbosmart made the giant leap to bring its component machining in-house to purchase its first CNC lathe and Machining Centre. The purchase was necessary 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. Also, the organisation still uses those original two machines.
