Unlike the tangible product we design,
manufacture and sell to the Mining and
Transportation markets it’s often hard to
explain what it is that Engineered Products
means and what our Engineered Products
Division does to those outside of the
Division. In this edition of Globaleyes we
attempt to provide some insight into the
Division and will attempt to help you to
understand the complexity of products and
services offered by the Division.
I would also like to take this opportunity to
introduce you to Dr David Smith and to welcome
him to the Bradken Board. I believe his experience
will be an valuable asset to Bradken as we continue
to grow globally. David’s experience will benefit
Bradken as he joins the Human Resources
Committee and the Audit and Risk Committee.

In September 2013, Bradken’s General Manager Corporate
Development Andrew Allen was awarded the title of Honorary
Citizen by the Xuzhou Municipal Government at the National Day
banquet held at the Crowne Plaza Xuzhou Dalong Lake.
This prestigious title is awarded to non-nationals who have spent
a significant amount of time in Xuzhou contributing to the city’s
economic growth, social development, foreign exchange and
On receiving this great honour, Andrew said, "Recognition as an
Honorary Citizen of Xuzhou, while a tremendous personal honour,
also recognises the efforts of all Bradken people involved over the
years in demonstrating Bradken’s culture.”
To date only two Australians, including Mr Allen, have received
this honour, the second being the Mayor of Dandenong, NSW
(Dandenong is sister city to Xuzhou).
