An African Presence

Uretech, a local manufacturer of polyurethane products such as wear liners for the mining industry, has entered into an agreement with the HMA Group of Australia to have its product range distributed internationally. In turn, the HMA Group’s wide product range will now be made available in Africa for the first time.
Established in 1966 as Halley & Mellowes, the HMA Group manufactures, services, and sells a range of capital plant equipment to diverse industries.
The agreement gives the HMA Group a toehold in the infrastructure development of Africa, where there is a vast need for rail, road and port links to maximise the pit-to-port potential of the continent’s mineral wealth.
For example, the materials handling division of the HMA Group is a leading global supplier of bulk materials loading systems in the Australasian region, with a specific focus on coal, iron ore, gravel, and sand. These can all be loaded in bulk using a variety of design and operating systems.
Loading systems are available for truck applications, including over-sized and multiple wagons, and train applications for flood or volumetric loading, single or multiple batch weighed loading, and automatic or manual operation.
