"Nybro" means “New Bridge” and best describes the activities of this Design and Engineering Company. In 1998, Nybro opened for business when a unique opportunity was presented to create a computer controlled rope machine for the textile industry.
The complex machine was designed, manufactured and installed in an amazing time of just sixteen weeks. Proving to be a great success, the task established Nybro as an innovative business with a broad knowledge of technical solutions and commitment to timelines.

Research and Development Know How
Nybro’s capabilities preceded them and word spread. Multiple projects were soon under way and business increased continually with requests to create products that are new, innovative and required in short periods of time. Nybro has developed approximately fifty of their own products and many others ranging from medical to industrial markets. In 2003, Nybro was recognised by AusIndustry and the Australian Taxation Office as a Research and Development (R&D) Company.
To achieve R&D status, Nybro was required to structure and implement, systems and procedures to account and process work to an auditable level. AusIndustry’s evaluation credited the business operations to be better than larger multi-million dollar companies that they have assessed. In consideration that Nybro was a small engineering firm at that time, this favorable report was an accolade for an astute team.
Also in 2003 an application was submitted to State Development for partial funding of a project called the Mars Recovery Vehicle (MRV). Success was granted through the Queensland Industry Development Scheme. The MRV project is specific to science and technology education, recreational transport and amusement rides or theme parks. Nybro has been a member of The Australian Amusement, Leisure and Recreation Association (AALARA) and is currently involved in initial conceptions for the Australian Space Agency (ASA).
Further achievements include, certification as a medical aid supplier to many government agencies and hospitals, winner of the 2004 Family Business of the Year (First Generation) award, preferred supplier to the NMRA New South Wales Children’s Hospital Fund and have featured in both local and national media.
Today Nybro is involved in a wide variety of invention and product design, ranging from micro electronics, plastic and metal molding, all the way through to heavy engineering and processing equipment. As a result of our design capabilities we have also developed our own products. These include medical and mobility equipment, industrial and agricultural products and much more.
Nybro is endeavoring to be consistent to industry benchmarks by implementing quality control programs, systems and procedures and complete manufacturing documentation of all products. Special attention to safety standards is paramount in any of their product design. Workplace Health and Safety is the apex consideration to all operations and aspects of the company.
Progressive attributes have facilitated the engagement of outside resources of business coaches and consultants. Training is a key factor in Nybro’s strategies and they have a vision of developing a highly skilled team.
In Summary, Nybro is a consistent performer and a strong sense of direction is yielded by precisely documented Business Systems that is the key to the companies continued success and prominent future.
