Serafini Chains began operations at Albion, Brisbane in 1966 when they took over Bennett Chains and closed their Fortitude Valley Works.
Since our inception, Serafini Chains have strived to produce welded link chains and lifting gear to merit approval of Government and Industry regulations.
Mr. Gino Serafini migrated to Australia from Italy in 1956 and created a multi million dollar chain manufacturing company.
When he arrived 38 years ago, unable to speak English and with only 2 shillings in his pocket
he commenced working for the Bennett Chain Company in Brisbane.
This company was purchased by a Victorian Company in 1963, closed down and all machinery moved to Melbourne.
This resulted in Mr. Serafini commencing his own welded steel chain manufacturing company.
Since that time Serafini Chains has prospered and grown in both size and reputation,
from once being a 6 x 12 metre factory to now having grown to over 5000 square metres.
The factory today is fitted with computerised Hi-tech chain making machinery, the only one in Australia.
Serafini Chains is fully Australian owned and produces chain from 3mm to 150mm diameter, and employs 15 people.
They are the largest link manufacturer in Australia. The then Premier of Queensland Mr. Wayne Goss
officially opened a computerised chain making machinery line in March 1994
since then they have installed a new computerised chain making machinery worth 5.5 million.
Serafini Chains exports to New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.
Serafini Chains is the largest chain manufacturing facility in Australia and sole chain manufacturer in Queensland.
They produce the highest standard welded link chains and lifting gear, supplying chains and
associated lifting products for marine, agricultural and domestic service applications.
