About Us

Denning Manufacturing was established in 2003. The company was set up by a group of dynamic and highly successful businessmen using the now defunct AB Denning premises.

Since its establishment, the company has been organically financed and grown with a vast investment into Research and Development, staffing, quality control, technology and tools.

The company has invested heavily into the successful implementation of a new and powerful software package to manage production and assist with purchasing and warehouse management. As a result of this, our productivity has increased and we have been able to reduce our overheads which has resulted in us passing the cost savings on to our customers.

Denning Manufacturing has a new range of unique products that it has created to fill a gap in the Australian coach and bus industry. The market demand for these products and services is very strong with a year-on-year growth.
