A Complete Five-Star Australian Service for Rubber and Plastics Manufacturing

When manufacturers first take a look at GRA, they are often mistaken in thinking that we simply take designs and go straight to mould creation. Nothing could be further from the truth. In our experience, clients are usually unaware of the processes involved in the creation of the part they require. The result is often a pleasant surprise as they find GRA can roll out a program from design to delivery, often showing product improvements along the way. With over 40 years of experience on hand, we have the expertise and in-house knowledge of many different industrial sectors such as:

With strong growth from inception, GRA quickly found blue-chip clients across Europe, North America and Asia. In 2006, the company was acquired by Skellerup Holdings and became a subsidiary in its formidable industrial division.

Are You Looking for a Supplier or a Partner in Rubber Manufacturing in Australia?

When we meet with our clients for the first time, it’s generally clear that although there is a process for rubber & plastics manufacturing and an important delivery deadline, companies are looking for somebody to supply parts made of rubber or plastic. By the end of the first consultation, there’s usually a new idea that GRA is going to make a great partner in the delivery of a new product or component part. This is because we believe the best results come through close consultation and timely project management. Also, via a full understanding of the wider objectives and the critical path required for timely completion with no budget overrun.

We have a customer service focus which has won company contracts with global giants such as Mercedes, BMW and Dupont. We are proud to have been their project partners and to have delivered beyond their expectations.

The Industrial Rubber Manufacturers You Can Trust

The quality of your end products depends substantially on the quality of the components as you can’t have one part letting the whole assembly down. That is why you seek out the best suppliers, and it’s exactly why our customers come to us. We take what we do as industrial rubber manufacturers very seriously indeed. This ranges from the way our rubbers are made to ensuring their suitability for the job our customers need.

We have been rubber products suppliers since 1980, and in that time, we’ve made considerable advances. At first, we were just making rubber products to order, but as we came to understand more about what our customers were using rubber for, we took the step into manufacturing specialised products for the automotive, construction, mining and water industries. When we see a potential for improvement, we investigate it and validate if it does what it claims to do. We’re part of the Skelleup Group, which gives us not only access to even more experience in this field but purchasing power to reduce buying costs, which we can then pass on to our customers.

Not only can we provide both standard and bespoke products, but our engineering team can work with you to target and solve problems, come up with concepts that may have been eluding you and bring cohesion and streamlining to systems that maybe been on the right lines but just a little clunky.

Rubber Products Manufacturers in Australia

As rubber products manufacturers, we don’t operate in one of the world’s alluring professions.

The people who appreciate us are the professionals, those who understand the technology used by rubber and plastics manufacturers; as well as the high specification and fine materials used to make them.
