GRT invests inshore to meet demand for dust suppression technology

GRT Dust Suppression

With global supply chain issues impacting the world for the foreseeable future, Global Road Technology is choosing to invest in their Australian manufacturing capabilities.

Specialising in dust suppression technology, GRT has global demand for their products and equipment to meet increasing needs to limit dust pollution worldwide.

Investing in their Australian-made manufacturing program has benefitted GRT greatly, securing domestic and international clients that are seeking a reliable company to provide industry-leading dust suppression products and equipment.

Recognised as a dust suppression industry leader within the Asia-Pacific region for GRT general manager Daniel Grundy, this growth highlights the need for Australian companies to make significant investments in developing and investing within Australia.

“A key buzzword used by the tech giants over the past decade is ‘agility’ and from a GRT perspective what we have done is showcase this trait when we opted to buck the trend and not go offshore to manufacture products but chose to do it locally, giving us the ability to control our destiny when it comes to delivering for our clients,” said Grundy.

“We have made the investments that we have to ensure that we can control the quality of our services and products from design to delivery and we have remained in Australia as we recognise that we can do this at scale here. This is now giving us the ability in a time of global uncertainty to provide a steady supply of products to our worldwide clientele and are investment hopefully shines a light on the benefits of producing their products here.”

The demand for dust suppression technology stems from the tightening legislature around air quality and dust exposure, the construction projects delayed and increasing demand from the Asia-Pacific region.

GRT is also launching an industry-first platform developed specifically to support the optimal usage of autonomous vehicles and equipment across the mining sector.

The platform, designed to work hand-in-hand with the autonomous haul and water trucks that are becoming increasingly prevalent at mine sites to drive productivity, will help to effectively manage dust while helping to maintain the haul roads that are vital to the smooth running of mining projects.

“Our entire approach is based on investing in people, products and technology that deliver on our main aim as a business to place dust suppression as one of the core pillars in ensuring the operational effectiveness of a mine site.”
