Company History

Brisbane Saw Service is a family owned and operated business, started by brothers Brian and Fred Gardiner in 1960. They followed the tradition of their father Charles who was a qualified saw doctor.

In 1962 Brisbane Saw Service imported from Germany some of the first tungsten carbide blades used in Queensland. This set the trend that continues today – supplying the latest products from recognised manufacturers worldwide.

The business originally specialised in the sharpening of saws for the saw milling and timber industries. However, advances in technology along with the growth of a broader spectrum of manufacturing processes has allowed the business to diversify. Now we not only offer tooling for furniture, cabinet making and board plants, but also for aluminium, steel, plastics and composites.
