Dermot McManus Award for Innovation
Established in 1981, Digga is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of machinery attachments (Digga) and mini-loaders (Kanga Loader), servicing the earthmoving and construction industry.
Exporting since 1996, Digga now exports to over 30 countries with high-growth markets including the USA, UK, Russia, Germany, France, Korea and New Zealand. The company is globally recognised for its world-class and quality product range, which can be customised for each customer. In this way, Digga works with and for its customers.
Despite a devastating fire in March 2016, the company achieved 24% export growth in the past 2 years, which is a testament to the company’s resilience and strength. Digga seized the fire as an opportunity to build a new state-of-the-art facility and today operates one of the most technically advanced manufacturing plants in Australia. Digga’s in-house manufacturing converts raw material to finished goods with industry-leading technologies to ensure fast lead times, quality products and an extensive product offering to satisfy our market’s needs.
During 2018, Digga is working to achieve ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Standards and undergoing internal audits and process changes to meet the requirements in accordance with our existing business plans and customer requirements.
