Haver & Boecker expands Australia mining, aggregates presence

Haver & Boecker has created a new mineral processing brand, Haver & Boecker Niagara, that will expand its global presence into the Australia mining and aggregates industries.

The new company combines the engineering expertise and product portfolios of Haver & Boecker’s three mineral processing technology manufacturers, based in Brazil, Canada and Germany, to provide customers around the world with shared innovative technology, more in-depth consultations, greater parts availability and better delivery times, it said.

John Brotherson, a 32-year mining veteran, will lead the new company as General Manager.

Karen Thompson, President of Haver & Boecker Niagara’s North American and Australian operations, said: “With a new mineral processing focus on the Australian market and an exciting, new local team, we will ensure that we can serve our customers with spare parts availability, technical consultation, and the shared Niagara brand engineering knowledge.”

She added: “John’s years of experience and enthusiasm for the industry will help us establish the Haver & Boecker Niagara name across Australia.”

Brotherson said: “Throughout my career, I have lived and breathed mining, which gives me confidence in my new role.

“Australia offers immense opportunity for mining and aggregates operations. Our team is motivated by customer success and ready to provide the quality service for which Haver & Boecker Niagara has become known.”
