Our Factories

Austrak has constructed 12 factories in Australia throughout our 32 year history. Some of those factories were custom-built to meet a client’s specific project needs, at times in very remote and challenging locations.

Commencing operations in January 2012, our factory in Dubai, United Arab Emirates is the twelfth and largest we have ever constructed, with an annual capacity in excess of 1.4 million sleepers.
