About us

Founded in 1973 in South Africa, Dust-A-Side specialises in delivering an extensive range of proven solutions and services, including;

Now operating across four continents, we employ nearly 900 dedicated personnel who have accumulated hundreds of years of combined project experience. Although we have a primary focus of servicing open cut and underground mines across Australia, we are also highly skilled at catering to the needs of civil and commercial construction projects, logistics, transport operations and quarries. 

By leveraging off our dynamic parent company – The COLAS Group – we’re able to provide industry leading solutions which are targeted to the specific needs of our clients. COLAS is one of the world’s largest civil engineering firms in the world, specialising in the construction and maintenance of road, air, rail and maritime transport infrastructure. Backed by a workforce of 57,000 people, COLAS undertakes about 72,000 projects every year in some fifty countries worldwide on five continents.

With over three decades of global research and refinement behind us, Dust-A-Side has everything it takes – the products, the experience and the personnel – to provide quantifiable results on every level. 

Our demonstrated dust control savings and efficiencies include:

  • Operational dust reductions of 90%+
  • Water savings of 95%+
  • Safer roads due to improved visibility and running surfaces
  • Substantial cost savings and efficiencies due to the reduced need for water carts.
