Australian Trade Commission visits Austrak in Dubai

August 9 2012

Austrak’s Dubai factory hosted a visit from the Australian Trade Commission last month, who were keen to see the newest and largest Austrak factory in action.

Larry Hadley, head of Dubai operations, took the delegation on a site tour of the factory which has been operating since January this year.

The rail industry in the Middle East is experiencing rapid growth, with governments investing heavily in rail infrastructure that will create an efficient and cost-effective way of linking major cities and ports.

The Australian Trade Commission is involved in identifying opportunities for Australian companies in the region, providing support through facilitating networking events and client meetings, as well as representing Australian businesses in industry and government forums.

Austrak established the Dubai factory to service Australian and international markets. It is well located to supply the many opportunities currently in the Middle East and North Africa, and can also supplement Australian production as required.

The Dubai factory is currently supplying sleepers to the Pilbara, for use in FMG’s Solomon Expansion Project.
