How We Deliver

We have a strong value proposition that focuses on delivering quality, fit for purpose defence solutions across Australia and New Zealand.


We have been designing and manufacturing defence solutions for over 30 years. This experience has allowed us to focus on the most important aspects of the delivery process, from the concept through to deployment, while providing a valuable supply partner for whole of life. We manage all parts of the supply process within TRT working with Primes, other suppliers and directly with Defence. 

Our reliability, quality, and collaborative environment stand out from the rest!
