Triton Manufacturing 2002 Photo Tour

For those who have been asking, here are some photos I took in about 2002 at Triton Manufacturing. It was in full swing as you will be able to see in some of the photos!

Because of the number of photos, you’ll have to click on the expand article tag to see the whole article!

Triton Parts

A number of parts going though the enameling and heat treatment process.

The parts hanging include a component of the multistand (now made in China), and the WC2000 top

  1. Good one Stu
    Would still like to visit there – even though things might be a bit quieter now-a-days with China in the loop etc.

  2. Thanks fore the pictures, Stuart. Very interesting.

    Like the preceding comment, I would love to do a guided tour of the factory as well.

    If the tour did not start until say 10 am, I would be very happy to use up some frequent flyer points to take a day trip from Brisbane to part in a visit.

    I wonder how many other people would love to visit Triton?

  3. Gold !!!
