Welcome to PFH – the Home of Rap Rak

PFH is a modern light engineering and toolmaking company based in Forster, on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia. Offering a diverse range of manufacturing services, we provide a short lead-time from prototypes to production on our CNCs. Our team comprises highly skilled tradespeople who pride themselves on their quality of work.

The business was established in 1972. Company founder Paul Fardouly’s experience included working as a contract toolmaker and film special effects technician before opening his own precision toolroom. We now specialise in prototyping and small jobs. Our motto is no job is too small!

Paul was also involved in the Federation of Bushwalkers Search and Rescue and had been a keen Canyoner and bushwalker since 1973. Paul began making his own climbing and safety equipment in 1979. PFH now manufactures the industry leading Pitt Stop and Rap Rak abseiling equipment as well as a diverse range of bolt plates (hangers). Online purchases may be made in the Outdoor Equipment section.

We use the industry leading CAD/CAM software TopSolid.
