Sandvik reported Amalgamated Mining Group (AMG) will rent Sandvik loaders, trucks, underground drills, and bolters to customers in the U.S.A. The move comes as AMG is expanding its U.S.A. operations, to include the planned opening of a rebuild facility and a parts and components division.

AMG will carry numerous units, including LH203 loaders and the TH545i trucks. The portfolio of offerings will allow it to support more customers, the company said.

“With Sandvik’s diverse line of equipment we are able to provide our clients with a full range of offerings from mine startup right through to mine closure options,” said Colin Elson, vice president, AMG. “Our alliance with Sandvik has proven very successful in Canada and it was a natural progression to extend that partnership into the U.S.A.”

Sandvik said the development will allow it “to address new markets and rental purchase opportunities.”
