Truco was established in 1892 by William Anderson, a Scottish immigrant, as the
result of his acquisition of a small rubber goods company. By capitalising on the
evolution of the mining industry and becoming a representative of the Electric Hose
and Rubber Company of America, Truco created a legacy of continued growth
and development.

The company diversified its product range, from the initial focus on raincoats, to
ultimately include small and large bore rubber abrasion-resistant hoses, PVC
hoses and hose fittings, rubber mouldings and extrusions, rubber sheeting and
lining material, ship and harbour wall fenders and a wide range of adhesives for
bonding industrial rubber products.

Truco recently entered into the conveyor belt market and offers a range of textile
and steel cord belting solutions to a number of industries. The company
prides itself on its attention to innovation, an aspect evident in the development
and manufacture of its own conveyor belt slitting machine designed to eliminate
waste and improve delivery times.

In 1908 William Anderson’s oldest son, John, took over the helm of Truco. His
son, J. Roy, succeeded him and remained managing director until his death in
the 1980s. Present Chairman Mike Anderson is the nephew of J.Roy Anderson
and has been with Truco since the 1960s.
