4WD Interiors originated in 1980 when founder Gary Plant was working as an air conditioning contractor based in the mining town of Karratha,
North Western Australia. Travelling the vast distances of the Pilbara and Kimberley region, Gary found a basic need to set up his FJ40
Landcruiser with a few extra storage compartments. First, was the Dash Shelf to place the odd can of thirst quenching beverage somewhere!
Next, was a Top Shelf for installation of a CB radio, then came an overhead Rear Rack made of light gauge reinforced wire mesh to store his
sleeping gear, towels and jackets.
1982 - Finding he had niche market in interior accessories when his mates started asking “Could he make shelving for them?” The first products were made with a glue pot and a brush in the annex of his caravan in Karratha. After quitting the contracting work he moved to Perth, registered as a business and starting selling his products by word of mouth and through a local 4WD accessories store.
1984 - Gary moved to Melbourne and continued the business working out of the family’s back yard shed where he starting selling direct to customers by mail order throughout Australia.
1986 - Moving the business from Melbourne to Cairns in Far North Queensland. We originally setup a workshop in one 200sq metre factory unit eventually expanding to five units. The range of accessories grew from Dash Shelves and Top Shelves to include Door Pockets, Floor Consoles, Roof Lockers and Wheel Arch Storage Boxes with False Floors in the back.
1990 - Developed and produced the first ever twin Roller Drawer system. The drawer system took the 4WD industry by storm and is now one of this company’s largest selling items.
1995 - Relocated to his purpose built 1800sq metre factory on Redden Street, Portsmith, Cairns.
