David Griffin Announces Retirement from DGI Trading.


Following a comprehensive career of industry service and company leadership, DGI Trading Managing Director David Griffin has announced his retirement from his role within the business, effective 31st December 2023.

David, who founded DGI Trading in 2008, served on the board and as Managing Director, and maintained the role of Managing Director following the acquisition of the business by North American Construction Group (NACG) in 2021.

With close to 50 years’ experience in the mining and construction equipment industry, David was previously Managing Director of Emeco Parts, which acquired his mining component supply company, D&L Equipment in 2005, following a successful Joint Venture which commenced in 2002.

David’s experience within the industry is recognised internationally, and his reputation has been acknowledged throughout several chapters of international expansion.

David departs an experienced management team, replaced by Gerard Dillon as General Manager.

“David not only has years of outstanding industry service and relationships, but has provided strategic leadership throughout us joining NACG, and has continued to provide valuable guidance to our staff” says Gerard Dillon.

“I would like to publicly thank David for his service and dedication to our business, and the positive impact he’s had on all our lives at DGI Trading. His extensive knowledge of international mining equipment markets has helped guide our growing business, and our expanding global footprint.

Those who know David personally admire him not only for his business efforts, but also for his support and advocacy for career development across many of the international communities in which he’s operated over the years. We have all benefited from the impact David has had on our lives here at DGI Trading and are thankful for his dedication. I wish David well and am confident the community will continue to benefit from his valued leadership.”

DGI Trading remains focused on continuing to support global mining component demand as a professional, competitive alternative to sourcing and supplying hard-to-find, late model OEM components and machinery.

Please join us in thanking David for his loyal and dedicated service. We wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement.
