SA rubber specialist lands Indonesian order Freeport CrushingRubber specialist Truco (Transvaal Rubber Company) has received an order for a pulp and slurry hose to the value of R100 000 from the Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Mine in Indonesia, following Truco's decision to exhibit at last year's Las Vegas Minexpo. Having impressed several global rubber users, Truco was chosen for its high quality, durable mining hose, sporting a successful track record in South Africa's harsh mining environment. As one of the world's largest gold and copper producers, the NYSE-listed Freeport mine represents an important entry point for the South African rubber specialist into overseas markets. Truco's Hose Division has established itself as a customer and application-focused business unit. The Truco Hose Division not only offers a wide variety of rubber compounds and liners, but also approaches each application with a 'clean slate' to ensure customer and application-specific needs are simultaneously met.
