The Gen3 Pedders control springs will be manufactured by Pedders at its spring plant, located in Keysborough, South East Melbourne.

Scott Pedder, Managing Director of Pedders Suspension & Brakes, said: "Our Australian owned franchise operation is a proud supporter of Australian motor racing and Australian manufacturing. We love our existing partnership with Supercars and the opportunity to create the Control Spring for all Supercars teams as they race in Gen3 from 2023 was too awesome to ignore, so we jumped at it.
"Product innovation is a key driver for our business and motorsport is part of our brand’s DNA. We enjoy watching, competing and manufacturing parts to enhance the performance and experience of vehicles. We are competitive by nature. We love the thrill of racing and the challenges it presents. It makes us compete on a higher level.
"Our lessons learned on the racetrack are lessons we integrate into the design and manufacture of our great range of products. We enjoy enhancing our customers’ vehicles to make them perform, carry loads and tow better and this is how we improve the customer experience... by racing."
Shane Howard, Supercars CEO, said: “We’re excited to step up our partnership with Pedders. Having a top quality Australian company creating the racing springs that assist our Gen3 cars is great news for our Supercars teams. I thank Scott Pedder and everyone at the Pedders business for both its existing partnership and for an amazing five years ahead, both on and off the race-track."
