Our Story

Ever since I was young, my dream was to own a gym and make people strong. After 20 years working within the manufacturing industry, it made sense to combine my passion for fitness with that experience.

I started designing and testing equipment in 2014. With 20 squat racks on my property, I ran workouts for the local expat community to train with me and help test the equipment. Once I ran out of space, I moved into a small 200sqm factory.

In 2017, I turned my dream into a reality. I resigned from my senior management role in a manufacturing business, bought a welding machine, registered a business and employed 4 people. Bench Fitness Equipment was born. 

Bench Fitness Equipment is a Thai/Australian business. We design and manufacture high-end customisable strength equipment at affordable prices for the global strength community. 

We are committed to supporting the Thai community and manufacture over 80% of our products at our manufacturing plant - based in Rayong, Thailand (next to the Harley Davidson, ARB, Ford, LG, BMW manufacturing plants) - creating over 40 jobs for Thai locals. 

Our goal is to keep increasing our local manufacturing workforce and eventually provide 100% Thai-made products.
