MSC Products Australia started way back in 1995 when Mark Cumming was told that he could not make a steering damper! As you can already see Mark did succeed in making his first steering damper and since then it has been a steady path from hobby business to full time production of steering dampers in our CNC manufacturing facility.
Today we have a group of talented staff with a passion not just for quality but for motorcycles! At MSC we all ride and race motorcycles and have done our whole lives. Motorcycling at MSC is more an obsession than an interest.
We manufacture all our products here in Australia at our very own workshop with a range of CNC Machining centres, lathes, grinding, EDM, and injection moulding machines. Our workshop is manned by Vaughan Cumming (Mark's son) and Jarradd Curran.
Both guys together with Mark and Simone (Mark's wife) keep a tight rain on quality and make sure every product that leaves MSC is the best possible finish so you can be sure you have a product that will last you years of untroubled service.
Mark is an accomplished designer and also a qualified toolmaker of 35 years. Mark has developed many products over the years and has been awarded an "Australian Design Award" for his Magna Latch and Self Closing hinge designs back in 1990. After a 10 year break from racing motorcycles in 1994 Mark got a dose of the racing bug again and purchased a Suzuki RMX250 and never looked back. Over the next 18 years Mark has been competing at the highest level racing events at State, National and International level including a top 20 silver medal finish at the 1998 ISDE. Today Mark spends his spare time riding his beloved Suzuki GSXR1000.
Simone is the real boss! Her days are spent wearing many caps from taking phone orders to production scheduling and all other office duties she is kept flat chat. Being a grandmother doesnt slow Simone down either in fact it has sped her up as the same month her first grandchild was born she got her road bike license and started tearing up the local roads on her Yamaha FZ6 untill she out grew it and bought a KTM990 Super Duke! Yes thats right superbike riding grandmother!
Vaughan is a great example of "the apple doesnt fall to far from the tree". Being very interested in all things fast from a very young age and spending countless hours in Marks factory after school and on weekends making and machining every bit of metal he could get his hands on it was only natural that Vaughan would follow suit and become a toolmaker and machinist like his father. Also like Mark, Vaughan is a accomplished racer and rider having spent 5 years on the test crew for ADB magazine for bike testing duties he was able to gain a great understanding for how bikes work. On the racing side Vaughan has finished 4x A4DE on Silver and Gold medals, finished 2nd E2 national clubman in 2007 and has finished the Finke Desert Race 7 times as well as many other club state and national events.
