Truco heads for the high seas with new fish pump hoses Being an established and big player in the local industrial rubber hose market, Truco (Transvaal Rubber Company) is increasingly expanding into niche markets previously dominated by overseas companies. The latest new product range from Truco - fish pump hoses - sees the company entering into the fishing industry for the first time. The fish pump hoses are designed to transfer fish, such as sardines and pilchards, from trawler nets to the boat. "Although this is a new focus for us, it is a long existing market serviced by mainly overseas suppliers. We believe that our reputation as a reputable company delivering quality products will enable us to effectively service this market," says Mike Stuart, Director, Truco Hose Division.
