In 1938 Leo Edward Tutt established L. Tutt & Co. Pty Ltd in Sydney to sell earthmoving equipment. Later he was joined by George Edward Bryant, and the company – Tutt Bryant Limited – became well established as a construction equipment sales, manufacturing and distribution businesses. For the last 80 years, cranes, construction plant and equipment from Tutt Bryant has been used to “reshape the face of Australia”, the company said.
Chen Wei Ng, Tutt Bryant managing director, commented, “Tutt Bryant’s remarkable journey over the last 80 years mirrors Australia’s post-war story of resilience, ingenuity and success. Generations of Australian men and women involved in the construction equipment industry have come to know Tutt Bryant for the excellence in its products and services. For this distinction to be maintained through the decades is tribute to the vision and pioneering spirits of Messrs Tutt and Bryant, as well as the dedication and hard work of all our staff, past and present.”
