MESCA MEMBER GOOD NEWS: Duratray International, a MESCA member for almost 10 years, has grabbed a top gong at the 2019 Governor of Victoria Export Awards.
A global manufacturer of dump bodies for the mining industry, Duratray won the state award in the Minerals, Energy and Related Services category and now moves on to the National awards in December.
The company was founded in Melbourne in 2001, introducing new technologies to dump bodies fitted to mining haul trucks and adopting a radically different approach – the concept of a Suspended Dump Body (SDB), rather than a rigid steel box.
Duratray’s solution provides improved productivity, maintenance, and safety. The company offers a unique and innovative solution to haulage problems that long practiced, conventional design approaches fail to solve including, reduced weight to increase payload and eliminate carry back to decrease fuel consumption and lowering the maintenance cost in comparison to traditional steel bodies.
From their factory and headquarters located in Bayswater, Victoria, the company has pursued opportunities to offer improvements to mines & quarries both domestically and internationally, and achieved significant global success as a supplier of unique and innovative solutions. Duratray now exports to five continents. Commencing with fleets of smaller 50-90 tonne trucks, later expanding to 300-400 tonne capacities, Duratray products currently operate in 34 countries.
