Since its establishment in 2015, United Mining Services (UMS) Group along with its subsidiaries UMS Shaft Sinkers and its engineering and design counterpart UMS METS (Mining Engineering Technical Services) has established a reputation for providing comprehensive turnkey mining solutions.
Fast track six years and the company is embarking on a new era in its history – that of a unified brand across all its operations. GERARD PETER finds out more.
The driving force behind the company’s success is the amalgamation of innovation and a wealth of industry experience that spans six decades along with a visionary management team that is keen to continue to grow the company’s global footprint. Already, UMS has been involved in projects in southern Africa as well as Brazil, the UK and the USA.
UMS’s core technical capabilities reside in its UMS METS and UMS Shaft Sinkers divisions which were both acquired by UMS six years ago. UMS Shaft Sinkers is the contracting/construction division specialising in shaft sinking, all mine underground and surface construction and specialist services of shaft optimisation. UMS METS is the EPCM arm of the business and has two divisions: UMS METS Mining and UMS METS Process.
