What we do
We specialise in the design and manufacture of Industrial Ovens, Industrial Dryers, Fume Incinerators and general Process Equipment.
GTD provides a cost effective solution, designed to suit the Customers' individual requirements. Our experience and understanding of this industry has enabled us to develop equipment which operates continually and reliably in high production environments.
For the past 25 years GTD was the Australian representative for the "Ross Air Systems" Division of Midland Ross Inc, U.S.A. and subsequent full Licensee for the "Ross Waldron" Division, U.S.A. Unfortunately due to cessation of “Ross Air Systems”, the license has now lapsed. GTD have acquired substantial design knowledge and continue to produce equipment of similar purpose.
Our reputation over the globe has earned us numerous repeat orders which, together with the confidence shown in GTD by our overseas Licensors, provides what we feel is demonstrable proof of the quality of the equipment provided
