  • The mining industry uses a bevy of massive machineries and equipment. To keep the equipment powering, preventative maintenance and repair services are in constant demand.
  • Mader Group has marked its global presence through a unique set of services; most of them are highly specialised for the industry.
  • The vastly skilled and professional team of Mader provides maintenance services to mobile or fixed plant equipment in the mining and civil industries.
  • The Company has an active list of more than 200 clients worldwide.

The global mining industry uses some of the biggest machinery and equipment available on the planet. From excavators which can strip tonnes of material in a single bucket to mammoth hauling trucks and processing units - all are massive. These specialised machineries are production critical and need to run 24/7 and 365 days.

To maintain the mines and the revenue in robust health, companies require specialised services to keep the wheels running for heavy-duty machineries.

ASX-listed Mader Group Limited (ASX:MAD) provides a unique blend of specialised services and maintenance for mobile and fixed equipment across all geographies and all fields (mining and civilian).

The unique and diversified business model of the Company could be understood easily through its vision statement.
