Aro Brothers was founded in 1960 by brothers Jim and Harold Aro. In July 2007 Aro Brothers was bought by Shirley Aro (founder Jim Aro’s daughter) jointly with Alex Puri who was the workshop foreman and has worked for the Company since 1985. Shirley runs the administration side of Aro Bros (2007) Ltd and Alex has a vast wealth of knowledge and experience and can help solve pretty much all problems or issues to do with towbars, trailers, carrying or carting and the latest regulations and necessary requirements. As well as manufacturing and designing custom trailers Aro Bros also specialise in the repair and alterations of all types of trailers whether it is retro fitting brakes to non-braked trailers, or repairing brakes on existing braked trailers. We also prepare, repair and alter trailers prior to re-galvanising. We manufacture axles and replace bearings and parts as required. Along with trailers Aro Bros also specialise in towbars. We manufacture our own ARO brand towbars and have done so since 1960, however recently we have also become agents for the Number 1 towbar brand in Australia Hayman Reese. We are up to date with all current standards and requirements for all towbars up to 3500kg whether the vehicle is on a WOF or a COF. With the invent of modern technology vehicles have become very complex machines and with the introduction of LED lights and the Can Bus electrical system we fit an ECU box to vehicles that have this electrical setup to overcome any issues with the vehicles engine management system. Because we specialise in Towbars and Trailers we can solve any issues that occur between the trailer and the vehicle electrical system. Tradesman Roof racks are also a specialty of Aro Bros as are the roof racks for the sports and recreational enthusiasts to carry bikes, kayaks, hunting, fishing or skiing equipment.
