Grima Recycling have been working the team at RUD in realising our plant expansion project. The modular RUD chain conveyor has proved to be reliable and effective for the transfer of of our recycled products from the loader hopper and up the inclined slop as part of our new process line. The regular contact and support provided by RUD compliments the RUD system quality.

ENCO Precast have been involved with RUD for over 10 years now, predominantly for the supply of the Philipp Group Lifting Hoops for Prestressed Precast Concrete elements for bridges. The engineering support led by RUD’s Engineering Manager Matt Pauli is always outstanding and has kept us loyal to RUD.

As Managing Director of ACRAN, we are always excited to provide innovative and quality technical solutions to the market for industrial ventilation, filtration and noise control solutions.
Recently we completed a project where RUD chain drives provided a controlled drive solution for an Engineered lift and fulfilled the requirements. ACRAN is grateful for the technical and on-site support provided by RUD Chains and look forward to completing future projects together as a trusted partner.
“Quality suppliers and supportive business partners, recommended without hesitation”
Air & Allied Sales (Pacific) has partnered with RUD Chains for the past 25 years to deliver outstanding engineered solutions. The professional and continued relationship with Ian and his team allows us to continue to support our customers above and beyond their needs.
Our recent requirements have pushed the limits of a standard supplier’s capabilities, but RUD Chains have never waivered in their scaled supply. As a result, we have been able to meet surges in demand without issue, passing on the excellent support offered by RUD Chains to our own customers.
RUD Chains are both quality suppliers and supportive business partners, and we would recommend them without hesitation.
“Half the amount of gear for the same result”
Patterson Crane Hire loves a challenge and RUD lifting gear helps us solve these challenges. The weight saving gains when we use their Grade 120 ICE range really makes a difference and minimises our risk when we are managing difficult, heavy lifts. Simply put, this is why we choose to work with quality suppliers like RUD.

At Gemilang, we’re confident that our high-quality Endurequip-made Portalifts and vehicle stands will continue to serve us well as we build more buses for the Australian market.
