How Norbar Came to Australia

In 1964 British speedster, Donald Campbell, travelled to Lake Eyre in South Australia to set a new land-speed record. While there he met David Wall, an engineering supplier based in Adelaide. One of Campbell’s team mechanics suggested that David should sell the Norbar products in Australia and David acted on this idea and introduced Norbar products to the Australian market. David later partnered with Leigh Packer who, along with his family, has continued to take Norbar’s brand name from strength to strength in the Australasian region with Norbar branches being added in NSW, QLD, Victoria, WA, New Zealand and Singapore.
