The Association of British Mining Equipment has a history dating back almost 100 years. Its role as an Association is to provide a service to its members in order to help promote sales, growth and gather market intelligence.

ABMEC provides a means for its members to accomplish things collectively, that they could not do as effectively or efficiently working alone.

In total, member companies represent over $1 billion worth of export mining equipment, with expertise in surface and underground mining of minerals, including coal, gypsum and potash.

Their machinery and services are utilised all over the world, meeting stringent environmental requirements and extreme climate challenges. British expertise in engineering is demonstrated with the high quality of workmanship coupled with excellent safety standards.

The manufacture and supply of mining equipment consider the full cycle of the mine, from planning and design to explosives, face extraction, beneficiation, material handling, transport, communication, electrical supply and control to ensure the safe and efficient extraction of material.
