Today with certification in business development and plastics and polyurethane rubber selection, Darren is fully equipped to discuss complete specifications on your project.
He also travels extensively all around Australia to visit our clients, especially in the WA mining industry.
Darren is at his happiest leaning over a planning table discussing with clients the various applications for our products.
