The company has a long and proud history in Australia spanning back to 1946, when Hornby Engineering was founded and started to produce axles in South Melbourne. In 1974 this company was acquired by Girlock and with the acquisition of two other companies in Sydney and Brisbane it became Australia’s largest company in its field. In 1988 the German AL-KO Kober Group acquired the company, which signalled the start of a new era of international involvement in New Zealand and South East Asia. The company’s strong growth over the last decade has been driven by product range expansion and innovation that has further enhanced AL-KO’s position as market leader in its field.
In 2016 AL-KO commenced a new phase in its history when it became part of DexKo Global Inc. – formed as a global strategic alliance between AL-KO Vehicle Technology and U.S. market leader to become the global market leader in caravan, motorhome and trailer axles and components.
Investment by DexKo Global in the Australian & New Zealand markets has since led to the acquisition of leading industry suppliers Melbourne Trailer & Caravan Supplies in 2016, G&S Chassis, Hume Caravan & Camping Accessories and CM Trailer Parts in 2018 and Preston Chassis Industries in 2019.
AL-KO is proud of its reputation for high quality products and services to the trailer, caravan and motor home market. Today the company utilises CAD, CNC and robotics to design and manufacture excellent products and with the aid of a modern computer system delivers high quality service to its customers.
AL-KO’s Australian head office and main manufacturing facility is located in Melbourne, with further factories and offices in Sydney, Brisbane and New Zealand.
