Katgroup is a conglomeration of Katco and Katcrush. Katco was established in 2003 and Katcrush was developed in 2014.
The Founders, Peter and Lyn Schafferius, owned, operated and developed a broad acre cotton farm in the Rolleston District. Through development of this property they soon recognised a need for dozers in the agricultural sector. In 2003, with many years of experience, they applied this knowledge and expanded to accommodate dozers for mining and land development. Since then Katco dozers have been highly sought after due to the high percentage of machine availability and top-quality equipment.
In 2014, Peter and Lyn expanded into Crushing and Screening with the purchase of several fleets of crushing equipment. They currently own one of the largest crushing fleets in Queensland.
