MACA bolsters turnkey mineral processing plant offering with Mintrex acquisition

MACA Interquip has announced the acquisition of engineering firm Mintrex Pty Ltd, building on the strong metals and minerals capabilities across the group companies.

A Western Australia-based business founded in 1984, Mintrex has built a strong reputation in engineering consulting, project management and asset management in the mining sector, MACA says, with the acquisition bringing enhanced capability and expertise, a strong client base and pipeline of projects, and an engineering offering that is complementary to the existing MACA Interquip engineering and construction business.

Acquiring Mintrex demonstrates MACA Interquip’s commitment to further enhancing its capabilities in delivering innovative engineering solutions across the mineral processing, energy and resource sectors, it added.

Geoff Jones, CEO of MACA Interquip, said: “Mintrex is well-established in the Western Australian market for designing and delivering state-of-the-art mineral processing plants and associated infrastructure. This future-focused acquisition will be a testament to shared capabilities for the development of a strengthened offering in the turnkey delivery of mineral processing facilities.”

David Greig, Thiess Group Executive – Australia West, said: “We look forward to welcoming the Mintrex team in the coming weeks. Bringing the expertise of the two businesses together will enhance the position of MACA Interquip and the Group more broadly, as we broaden our client offering and capability in the metals and mining sectors.”
