Since our establishment on September 1st, 1987, DS TechWrite has been bringing precision, innovation and professionalism to Australian OEMs and Equipment Operator and Maintainers. In the days before Mincom LinkOne and Ventyx LinkOne, DS TechWrite began as a technical documentation specialist, including parts, maintenance, training, procedure and process manuals under the founder Dennis Wood. Charged with the not-so-modest first task of preparing technical documentation for an Australian Defence Force (ADF) project, DS TechWrite started as it meant to go on, unafraid to take on the big jobs and deliver innovative solutions, unmatched by any Australian competitor.
Our Clients – You’re in Good Company
From the beginning, DS TechWrite’s reputation for accurate and professional work helped the fledgling company grow. After completing further work for the Australian Defence Force, early projects included:
• Haulmark Trailers (Australia)
• Queensland Coal Association.
• Power Brewing (Now Carlton United Breweries)
• Queensland Breweries Limited, Yatala, Queensland
• Meadow Lea Foods, Murarrie, Queensland

Innovation in Online Technical Documentation
In the mid 1990’s DS Techwrite became a Distributor/Contract Publisher on behalf of Mincom Limited for their LinkOne product. Recognising the power and potential of Mincom’s LinkOne, Dennis fast became Australia’s leading provider of technical writing and online technical documentation solutions. It was around this time that Dennis’ daughter, Tracy Wood, joined the family business and took on a leading role in integrated LinkOne solutions.
In the coming years, Dennis and Tracy developed a reputation for innovation and leadership in the technical documentation field. DS TechWrite became the first Australian partner in Inmedius S1000D publishing, developed a partnership with Haulmark Trailers and the ADF, and took on the ambitious role of sole certified Australian partner in ABB’s LinkOne (formerly Mincom LinkOne) and its distribution. DS TechWrite went well beyond the basics for LinkOne implementations, becoming a major player in the online document publication and solution providers in Australia.
Tracy Wood Continues to Innovate
When Tracy Wood took the reins, she took the company to new levels, making DS TechWrite now a Global Distributor and Service Provider of ABB’s LinkOne (formerly Mincom LinkOne). After twenty-five years working across heavy machinery, mining, construction, food processing and other industries, Tracy recognised the need for a streamlined aftermarket parts sales and supply tool. Tracy and her team have developed DST Parts Portal (link to parts portal parent page), a revolutionary solution for OEMs to provide quicker, simpler and more accurate parts supply to their customers.
DST Parts Portal helps customers bypass the call centre and purchase the parts they need now
Using her in depth understanding of supply chain and the industry’s challenges, Tracy and her team have simplified, streamlined and made buying and selling parts easier than ever, delivering OEMs finalised, accurate orders to increase their profit. Finally, customers can choose the RIGHT part, view their pricing, and generate a purchase order in just a few clicks. Meanwhile, DST Parts Portal integrates seamlessly with leading logistics, CRM and inventory management packages to remove the time-consuming and costly admin process.
