Small beginnings are often the very best kind - just ask Peter Nuttall from RUD Chains, Australia

30th January 2014

NETT Magazine: January 2014:

"From a humble family business that started under a house in suburban Brisbane, Peter is now driving a multi-million dollar company with offices in Australia, NZ and the South Pacific."

What's the name of your company?
My business is RUD Chains, and we import and wholesale mining and industrial related products and have recently started fabrications and manufacturing of complete systems.

How long have you been in business:
We are currently a subsidiary of a family business called RUD Ketten Fabrik GMBH, a German company that was started in 1875 and is now on their fifth generation. We are the Australian arm of the company.

My father started the business in 1984 from under our house in Macgregor here in Brisbane, and in 1986 he doubled the size of the workforce (to two people) when he hired me. From there, we have built the company up into a multi-national multi-million dollar company with a turnover of $30 million annually and operates in Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.
