Dura grows with Australian acquisition

By Stuart Burns June 25, 2012

Our footprint in the fast-growing Australasian market is a good few sizes bigger this morning thanks to the acquisition of Melbourne-based business Composite Engineering (CE) by our Perth-based distributor Dura Composites Australasia (DCA).

Established eight years ago, CE is a highly-respected supplier of a wide range of fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) composite products and will fit very well with DCA.

 As a result DCA will now have a Melbourne office and warehouse to complement its Perth headquarters.

CE’s Managing Director David Barrie clearly shares the growth aspirations of DCA - a key factor in the deal as Dura Composites looks to increase its international reach.

This latest positive news out of Australia comes just a few weeks after we announced a long-term distribution deal enabling DCA to supply products across the whole Australasian region.

The agreement allows DCA to supply the full range of Dura Composites products to 21 countries in Australasia, including developed countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Singapore, fast-growing regions such as Indonesia, South Korea and North Korea plus a host of developing nations such as Brunei, Vietnam and Philippines.
