What they achieved

In 2013, Taurus began exporting its intellectual property to Indonesia. Taurus products are now manufactured there for the local market.

With TIQ’s support, the company is now exploring other export markets such as South East Asia and India.

Despite the mining downturn in 2016, Taurus reported export revenue well over budget expectations for that year.

How they did it

Taurus directors and designers have many years’ combined experience in the mining industry, and a comprehensive understanding of mining operations and individual clients’ needs. They specialise in tailored solutions customised to each mine’s particular operations.

Taurus developed world-class innovations and proved them in the local market before looking overseas.

They now have an office in Balikpapan, Indonesia, and are exploring other export markets with TIQ’s support.
