Tutt Bryant can trace back its origins to 1938 when Leo Edward Tutt established L Tutt & Co Pty Ltd, selling earthmoving equipment out of a small office located in Sydney?s CBD.
Armed with an idea and ?500, Tutt joined with George Edward Bryant and embarked on a journey that eventually brought about one of Australia?s largest construction equipment sales, manufacturing and distribution companies at the time ? Tutt Bryant Limited.
?Tutt Bryant over its 75 years in Australia has continually set the benchmark for excellence in its products and services. Our name invokes strong values and positive qualities that are enduring through generations in the Australian construction industry,? said David Haynes, the managing director of the Tutt Bryant Group.
?It?s definitely no small task achieving a 75 year milestone, so to be in a position to celebrate our 75th anniversary is testament to the success and hard work ethos Tutt and Bryant first instilled in this company.?
Crushing & Mining Equipment (CME) is also celebrating 25 years in the industry this year.
From small beginnings in Perth, Western Australia in 1988, CME has grown into an international organisation. The company has focused on providing materials processing expertise, wear products, engineering services including proprietary software for liner wear rate modelling and production flow enhancement, and a comprehensive range of capital equipment to the resource industries.
Initially starting with a single staff member, CME?s core business was the supply of its LinerSafe manganese crusher liner range into WA quarries and mines.
Now the company is part of the H-E Parts International group and employs in excess of 110 team members that service Australia, Africa and the Middle East, with agents in Indonesia and the Philippines. The company currently holds 16 patents and various industry awards, the latest the 2012 IFAP Safety Innovation of the Year award for CME?s LockLift.
?It was through consistent product innovation and a superior service offering that CME has had continued growth,? said Gordon Fogwill, CME?s sales and marketing general manager.
?CME?s innovation could only be sustained due to world class supplier relationships and a dedicated team that consistently delivered work of the highest calibre, many of whom that have been with the company for over 15 years.?
