Austmine Acknowledges Foundation Members at Austmine 2019
Austmine is proud to be celebrating 30 years of advocacy and support for the Australian Mining Equipment, Technology and Services (METS) sector. From humble beginnings in 1989, Austmine has transformed to be a major stakeholder in the global mining industry and a key organisation for METS businesses to build growth, both domestically and overseas.
At the recent Austmine 2019 Industry Leaders' Dinner and Awards, Austmine's CEO Chris Gibbs Stewart presented our Foundation Members with a token of gratitude for the support of these pioneering companies.
Speaking about the Foundation Members, Chris said "It is fantastic to see the ongoing support for Austmine from some of the world's leading and most innovative METS companies. While some of the names may have changed and organisations have restructured, their commitment to creating a real difference in the mining community and to creating a more successful and sustainable future has never wavered."
"At Austmine, we believe the best is yet to come for our industry and our members. We are in the midst of one of the most exciting times of change and we believe that through embracing our joint challenges together will we see the Australian METS sector continue to grow and prosper. However, it is important to recognise those companies who paved the way for the substantial METS sector we have today. From exploration, blasting and design, through to maintenance, processing and transportation, our Foundation Members have pioneered new technologies and ways of doing business. We thank them for their great contribution to our industry."
