Cortez Morgan Company, which has been increasing its global and sectoral capacity day by day with its activities in many countries, especially in Australia, for 100 years, was founded in 1921 by Cortez Collen, a member of the Collen family living in Queensland, Australia, in order to carry out mining operations on Mount Morgan which has the best natural mineral resources of the region and the country.
The company, which has been operating in the mining sector for years, established its first foundry in 1955 in order to meet its own requirements of the mining sector, which is its main activity, and to take part in the long term in the global sense. Not only did it succeed in meeting its own requirements, the company started to become an alternative resource for many companies and countries and to become famous in the steel industry.
Subsequently, with the developing technology, growing capital and the increase in the company’s global awareness, it started to manufacture machinery with a new venture in 1985. Thus, the company started to produce many machines and parts, especially slitting machines, cutting knives, furnaces, which are required in iron – steel and brick production, under its own roof, and continued its development by entering the machinery manufacturing sector.
