Austin ETT Limited started in January 2020 when the leaders of two great mining equipment solution companies came together to form a joint venture between Austin Engineering Limited and ETT in South Africa.
As Henry Ford stated so many years ago, “the coming together is a beginning…” and we see this partnership between Austin and ETT as being a powerful beginning between two industry leaders. The focus is to reach widely across Africa offering both OEMs’ world-class products to the heart of mining on the continent.
With African mining being one of the few global industries to thus far continue in the light of a crippling global pandemic, the continent provides the perfect platform for growth in the sales and service of the products within the AUSTIN-ETT fold.
Peter Forsyth, Austin Engineering MD, says: “Austin’s wide range of bespoke mining truck bodies and buckets have not only captured international awards for their engineering innovation but have found their way into mining operations worldwide and have proven to offer immense added value through their simplicity and practical designs, while always considering safety as a key factor of functional use.”
“The combination of these AUSTIN products coupled with ETT’s renowned and reliable specialised equipment solutions for mining and construction, such as water, fuel and lube service trucks as well as our beast of an off-road lowbed trailer finally offer such incredible value to customers and allow them to deal with just one supply from design through delivery, and on to the personalised after sales service support we offer,” says Andre McDuling – MD ETT.
