Industry Buying Guide
We are a partnership of two lawyers - brothers Rob and Bruce Davidson -
and an accountant, Peter Murphy, who set about creating a different kind of
recruitment company. We were founded in 1991 on a very simple principle:
if people work in jobs they love, their lives are a whole lot happier and more
fulfilled. Our leaders know that their principal role is to make their people
happy. It makes for a fun and productive workplace.
Although we’ve grown to become one of the largest and most successful
recruitment companies in Queensland, our philosophy hasn’t changed.
We’re still owned by hands-on managing partners. Our staff are a dedicated
group of people, who are all passionate about helping others find
stimulating and fulfilling employment. These candidates will in turn bring
genuine enthusiasm, commitment and drive to their new roles.
We are boutique and big at the same time. We pride ourselves on our agile,
responsive and dedicated client service delivery model. We are also proud
of the fact that three years in a row, job-seekers around Australia voted us
‘Australia’s Favourite Recruiter’. But we’re even more excited about what
it means - we’ve helped thousands of people find fulfilling roles. Many
of our clients come to us via personal recommendations from friends
or colleagues whom we’ve placed previously - and we think this kind of
recognition is the ultimate accolade.
Davidson Recruitment (DR) combines the best recruitment consultants,
processes and technology to deliver high quality, yet affordable recruitment
We provide permanent, contracting and temporary recruitment
services, Australia-wide and overseas (both candidate sourcing and
client servicing) across 14 specialist recruitment divisions covering all key
market segments. These include Executive and Management, Accounting,
Business Support, Banking and Finance, Legal, Sales and Marketing, Human
Resources, Energy Oil and Gas, Information and Communication Technology
(ICT), Technical and Operations, Construction and Property, Mining and
Resources, Engineering and Supply Chain.
We work with both National and International Clients and Candidates.

Davies Wear Plate Systems
Davies Wear Plate Systems has unique manufacturing methods and designs
which deliver harder, longer wearing materials, with fasteners that maximise
wear life. Handling tools, enhanced fasteners and monitoring systems also
add significant safety advantages and reduce labour and maintenance costs.
Davies WPS is a company driven by innovation and an uncompromising
desire to deliver effective solutions to the benefit of our clients.
The systems developed by Davies WPS solve the problems that alternative
products can create or don’t address. This is achieved through our unique
wear liner manufacturing methods and fastening designs which allow for
the processing of harder, longer wearing materials and fasteners which
maximise wear life.
Enhanced fastener systems add significant safety advantages and reduce
labour and maintenance costs. These are all complemented by a range of
safe lifting, handling, installation and removal tooling. The end result of this
technology is to provide extended wear life, on-going cost benefits and
superior standard of safety.
We believe that continuing to deliver beyond what has been previously
been accepted to be the industry ‘norm’, will ensure that we are regarded as
the foremost provider of innovative wear solutions.
TaperLockTM - the new standard in wear plates
The TaperLockTM System is the basis for this new generation of wear plate
technology. The unique flush-faced, fully tapered fastener allows the use of
innovative plate processing methods to process harder, thicker material. The
TaperLockTM fastener and plate hole design also eliminates premature wear
and maximises plate life.
This proprietary system has lead the way for the introduction of harder,
more cost effective wear materials into a range of wear liner applications
due to its ease of installation, ready availability and maintenance cost
The TaperLockTM System can also be combined with other complementary
systems within the Davies WPS range of wear solutions.
EzyLockTM - single sided attachment
A variation of the standard TaperLockTM system, EzyLockTM has an alternative style
of fastener featuring a unique locking mechanism instead of a thread and nut
which enables quick, single sided installation and removal of wear plates.
The development of this system was to overcome the engineering
challenges, practical complications, safety risks and significant costs
associated with installing and changing liners - particularly in plant with
limited or no access to external walls.
When matched with the SafeFitTM handling system, the safety, cost and
efficiency benefits of EzyLock are even further enhanced.
SafeFitTM Handling System - safter, faster
The fastening and liner systems are all complemented by the SafeFitTM
system which consists of a range of safe lifting, handling, installation and
removal tooling. These allow the safe and efficient handling and transfer
of large, heavy and hard liners, eliminating manual handling, minimising
change-out time and significantly reducing safety risks associated with liner
As customers demand higher standards of safety combined with harder
wear materials and shorter shutdown periods, the SafeFitTM Safe Handling
System has become an essential and important part of the Davies product
RemLockTM Nut - removable lock nut
RemLockTM Nuts feature a unique design which overcomes costly problems
commonly experienced during on-site maintenance involving nuts and
bolts throughout a wide range of environments and applications.
The RemLockTM can replace any standard nut or lock nut and features a
metal nut with a nylon locking component which not only protects the bolt
thread during its service life but is also able to be separately disengaged in
a simple process to allow trouble free removal of the metal nut. This reduces
the need to replace bolts due to corrosion or damaged threads and also
eliminates the need for destructive and hazardous removal methods which
involve hot works.
WearSenseTM - remote real-time wear monitoring
Davies Wear Plate Systems has taken condition monitoring of wear plates to
a new level with the development of its patented WearSenseTM System. The
wear monitoring capability of WearSenseTM is incorporated into the standard
Davies liner system with the adaptation of TaperLockTM style bolts to include
a wear sensor which allows accurate measurement of plate wear. This
enables real-time monitoring of plate wear without the need to shut down
operations or gain access for inspection.
Being able to provide an accurate representation of the condition of the
wear plates also ensures that informed decisions can be made regarding
shutdown planning, maintenance spending and stock control.
