Truco celebrates 125 years of business! 125 years and 5 generations after William Anderson started supplying odds and ends to the fledgling mines around Johannesburg in 1892, Transvaal Rubber Group (Truco) stands as one of Africa's biggest suppliers of rubber hose, conveyor belts, sheeting, fenders and fittings. Though the company now comprises 4 local subsidiaries and a growing African footprint that now includes a branch in Accra, Ghana; 7 500+ m2 of manufacturing space; and over 360 employees, Truco has maintained its values as a family business. Our high focus on solving customer problems; unmatched service agility and high-quality, competitively priced solutions still mirror the ethos that the company was built around during earlier times. As we celebrate our 125th birthday, we look back on the extraordinary journey from a small, pioneering general mining consumables supplier to one of the continent's leading players in industrial rubber products.
