Founded in 1981 by Stewart Wright (Australia)
Digga initially supplied earthmoving wear parts to the local machine operators. A need quickly arose for the repairs and supply of drilling augers and a small factory was established in Tingalpa soon after. The company moved into manufacturing in 1982 and the range of products grew steadily as the company focused on its customer’s needs. With a desire to produce high quality, low priced products, Digga strived to improve manufacturing processes and introduced computerized machining and robotic welding in 1989. With the outstanding growth the company was achieving advanced steel cutting equipment was introduced a few years later. In 2006 Digga Australia moved into a purpose-built 12,500sq/m facility at Yatala, halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
