About ARB Caloundra
ARB Caloundra is locally owned and operated by a team who bring a wealth of industry experience and expertise as well as local Sunshine Coast regional knowledge. While fostering all the values outline in the corporate philosophies below we strive to provide exceptional customer service. The businesses have a reputation for honesty, reliability and professional service.
ARB was founded by Tony Brown in 1975 when he was inspired by a 4WDing trip through the top end of Australia. Tony began working in the family garage to address some of the product deficiencies he’d encountered on his trip. It was exactly what Australian 4WDers had been waiting for, and ARB, the initials of Anthony Ronald Brown, was founded.
Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 accessories. We have a vast international presence, with an office in the USA and an export network that extends through more than 100 countries around the globe. Our philosophy, however, has never wavered from its original course – quality, reliability and practicality above all else.

To ensure our products consistently meet your expectations, ARB invests substantial capital into research and design each year.
Our design and engineering team utilises the latest CAD, CAM parametric modelling systems and finite element analysis packages, and is supported by independent companies and universities for special projects like vibration, strength and crash testing.
We also devote considerable time and resources toward sourcing new products from around the world. IPF lights from Japan, Warn winches from the United States… we scan the globe in search of equipment that meets both the demands of our customers and our own stringent quality requirements. In addition, we are constantly on the lookout for new ways to improve our business practices, from distribution to customer service. ARB is a Quality Endorsed Company and wherever we can, we endeavour to ‘raise the bar’.
