History

Concut was the first company in Australia to cut concrete after importing a concrete cutting machine from California. Concut was incorporated as a company in 1958.

After establishing a market in Sydney mainly with councils, Concut set up a division in Melbourne.

During the 1970’s Concut established in Brisbane, Victoria, and Perth, with regional branches in Gladstone, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Canberra, Geelong and Port Hedland.

By 1990 the Concut group employed a total of 125 people.

In 2004 it was decided that the group would be best placed to take advantage of further growth by separating the numerous state and regional offices thereby creating separate trading entities for each state. This structure remains in place today.

The concept of Grooving was introduced to Australia by Concut in 1978 with a trial on the main runway at Mascot. From this trial the Federal Airports Corporation specified that all commercial runways in Australia had to have a friction course of Grooving, leading Concut to design and construct a Grooving machine with a meter wide cutting head. This unit is still in use today.

In 1984, Slip-Formed Concrete Paving was being used by Contractors to construct roadways.
Concut designed and built two Span saws to saw cut contraction joints. Since 1984, over 1,500,000 meters of joints, mainly in New South Wales, have been completed. The Span saw has now been replaced by early entry saw technology.

Occupation Health and Safety became an issue in the 1990s which led to Concut developing an OH&S Management system including training manuals. The National Safety Council of Australia declaring Concut the winner of their Category 3 for safety in 1999. The system was adopted by the Concrete Cutting Industry as their Training Manual.

Concut has also played a role in some of the Australia’s most significant recover projects, with attendance at Tasman bridge collapse (1975); the Granville rail disaster (1977), as well as being recognised for contributions made during the Thredbo Rescue and Relief Operation 1997.
