Background: In 1938, Eric Rainsford established a business manufacturing surgical equipment for the armed services. The Rainsford manufacturing business developed rapidly, expanding production to include many household name appliances such as mirrors, blinds, seat belts and child restraints. By the 1970's the Rainsford enterprise had expanded to include automotive components manufacturing facilities in Adelaide, Lisarow, Gosford and Melbourne.

The Rainsford company held a number of worldwide patents and had a reputation for quality in design and manacturing.

 

In 1981 the Rainsford Company expanded by applying their manufacturing skills to materials handling equipment including the Sumi and later the 'OSKO' range of electric stackers which are now distributed through TASK Australia.
