About Us

When brothers Geoff and Steve Ryder began building tray bodies in their parents shed in the early 90s, they had no idea that the ‘Ryder’ trademark would spread across Queensland and over the borders so quickly.

It wasn’t long before the pair moved from their makeshift workshop in their parents shed in Julia Creek to the current location in Townsville. With the move, came an increased manufacturing capability, a streamlined operation, a skilled and professional team and an ever-growing customer base.

Despite their more than 40 years’ combined experience, Steve, Geoff and the Rydweld team continue to be motivated by the same driver that spurred them to start Rydweld decades ago – a passion to build ‘what the customer wants’.
