Local mining and quarrying parts and equipment supplier Crushing Equipment has become part of the Amsted Global Solutions group.
Crushing Equipment, which was first set up in Melbourne in 1965, has grown in stature to become one of the premier suppliers of crusher wear liners and auxiliary items to original equipment manufacturers, third party suppliers, mining companies, quarrying companies and the recycling industry.
In 2019, Crushing Equipment was sold to South African company Cast Products, which later decided to close the company.
However, the good news is that members of the Crushing Equipment team, including managing director Tom Bruce, will now work for US OEM Amsted Global Solutions (AGS), which has branched out its presence to the Australasian market, specifically the mining wear parts industry. AGS is a supplier for a variety of global heavy equipment companies on six continents.
In a letter to the old company’s customers and suppliers, Bruce said AGS will replace Crushing Equipment’s part of the market.
“AGS will be available and ready to fill the void in the market from today and comes to you highly recommended by the Crushing Equipment team,” Bruce said.
AGS is a global provider of castings, springs and components for industrial applications. Its mining wear parts industry has recently expanded to the Australian market.
It is a subsidiary of Amsted Rail company which has developed high quality cast products for freight cars along with other heavy-duty industrial applications.
“Adding a presence in Australia allows us to better serve our customers around the world, strengthening our global network that includes facilities on six continents, including manufacturing locations in the US, South Africa, Brazil and China,” AGS vice president Kevin Skibinski said.
AGS is part of Amsted Industries, which is a global manufacturer of industrial components across mining, construction, rail, trucking, automotive and other industrial applications.
