|The DRA company is a privately owned and operated company, founded in 1971 in Melbourne, Australia. DRA was the first industrial coating company where the founder was a chemical engineer. This brought many years of technical knowledge to the coating application industry. As the company grew other technically qualified personnel were added to service the expanding demand. Factory and site projects were undertaken Australia wide.In 1984 the company commenced its Engineering division in WA, followed by Crane manufacturing in 1997 and its Tank division on 2001.
