Registered in 1977, the name ACRA Machinery has always been synonymous with the highest quality machinery and the best customer service available. Founded by the still present Owner Jeff Beable.

Acra Machinery was first registered in 1977 starting out as a service business mainly repairing and maintaining Kleen press brakes and guillotines, then later all Acrabend Press Brakes and Acrashear Guillotines. It wasn’t long before many customers were asking for Jeff’s assistance in finding quality second hand machinery and seeking advice on the selection of new machinery.

In 1986 Acra Machinery bought the manufacturing rights from Leeton Steel Works for all Acra products, including spare parts.

It was about that time Acra Machinery became a company with the intention of continuing to build Acra Machines in Australia, however economic reality at the time made this dream impossible.

However the second hand side of the business was growing larger each year, and Acra still needed a supplier of quality new machines. Acra traveled to Europe and America several times looking at all the machines available until they finally partnered with a previously unheard of Manufacturer in Turkey, Durmazlar in 1994. Since then Durmazlar has grown to be the largest Press Brake manufacturer in Europe and the second largest in the world, spanning an impressive 155,000 square meters of factory. They are now manufacturing over 5150 high quality machines annually. Going forward ACRA are committed to the further expansion of our range to cater for the Australian sheet metal, machine tool and steel building industry.
