Alberta's AMG expands Sandvik partnership into the US

Amalgamated Mining Group will provide rental underground equipment from Sandvik including loaders, trucks, underground drills and bolters to customers in the USA.

For more than 30 years Amalgamated Mining Group (AMG), headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, has been an industry leader in providing creative equipment and parts options to clients globally.

With more than 300 machines in inventory, AMG has a wide range of options to suit their clients’ operations. Their expansion into the USA within the mining and tunnelling industry has been a focus for some time now.

AMG’s plans include opening facilities for their sales group, such as a rebuild facility as well as a parts and components division.

AMG will be carrying a variety of units to suit various needs, ranging from more compact units, such as a Sandvik LH203 loader, to larger machines, such as Sandvik TH545i trucks.

“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 of Amalgamated Mining Group. “Our alliance with Sandvik has proven very successful in Canada and it was a natural progression to extend that partnership into the USA.”

“AMG brings years of solid customer relationships, knowledge and commitment to the mining sector,” said Wes Vietmeier, business line manager, Load and Haul at Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions. “Working with AMG will allow us to address new markets and rental purchase opportunities.”
