Ampcontrol, Australia’s largest privately-owned electrical engineering company, has today announced the acquisition of Hunter-based Androck Engineering & Mining Pty Limited (Androck).
Established in 2006, Androck began as an exclusively based repair-supplied company to support the Australasian underground mining industry. Initially starting as a specialised component overhauling facility, it has grown into a substantial supply & manufacture operation, including the engineering & re-engineering of many problem issues in the underground mining sector.
“There is a great opportunity for the industry when Ampcontrol and Androck combine their offerings. Androck’s extensive mechanical and machining expertise, capability, and manufacturing operations will enable Ampcontrol to further accelerate the development of our energy and electro-motion solutions at scale to support industry decarbonisation,”
Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol Managing Director & CEO.
Androck has five workshops in Rutherford, NSW, and has machining, fabrication, hydraulics, and electrical repairs capabilities. They conduct equipment services and overhauls, including continuous miners, shuttle cars, and multi-bolters.
The acquisition provides an extraordinary level of value for both Ampcontrol and Androck customers, suppliers, and employees, to future-proof Australian manufacturing jobs and make net zero a reality.
