Otraco is one of the world’s leading providers of tyre management services to the mining industry.
Tyres on massive mining haul trucks and earth movers can account for up to fifty per cent of operational costs, so getting the maximum use out of these tyres is critical to successful operations. There is where Otraco comes in, providing a sophisticated, independent tyre management service which has built an impressive track record for successfully reducing tyre costs for its clients – often by more than 20 per cent.
Regarded as a global innovator in this field, Otraco was founded in 1972 when the resources boom was taking off in Western Australia. The company now has permanent operating bases in Australia, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand and South Africa, and long-term consulting and on-site tyre maintenance contracts in countries across the world.
Backed by extensive research, Otraco has a service methodology that is considered the benchmark for world’s best practice in earthmover tyre management. It is a process which is continually being refined.
Otraco also exports intellectual property, software and management skills to help mine operators enhance productivity, reduce costs and improve safety outcomes.
The Australian Export Award judges favourably commented that innovation is at the heart of Otraco’s business plan and its marketing strategy. The company understands the importance of engaging with local communities in all aspects of its business, the judges also noted, which gives them a critical competitive advantage.
