For decades AB Industries has been providing equipment remanufacturing solutions including re-design, repair and refurbishment, installation and commissioning of a wide range of rotating machinery.

In 1958 Harold Wallace moved on from his job at TEAL Airways (now Air New Zealand) and used expertise gained from 20 years in aircraft maintenance to rebuild engines at the newly-formed Wallace Reconditioners.
In 1974 Phill Wallace started Alloy Bearings, making bearings for Broomwade compressors in a small building located in Wellsford. From its humble beginnings the business has grown and moved three times, the most recent in 1998. The present site at Worker Road, Wellsford, accommodates our valued Overhauls team and includes on-site dynomometer testing facilities.
Stephen Wallace, grandson of Harold, has been the sole owner of AB Axis Company Limited T/as AB Industries since 2004. Other family members are also involved in the business.
AB Industries is currently situated at 5-17 Worker Road, Wellsford, in a building purpose-built in 1998.
Wellsford is located at the junction of State Highways 1 and 16, 79km north of Auckland.
