Ampcontrol acquires mining support company Androck

Ampcontrol has 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 and manufacture operation, including engineering and re-engineering to solve many problem issues in the underground mining sector.

“There is a great opportunity for the industry when Ampcontrol and Androck combine their offerings,” said Rod Henderson, Ampcontrol Managing Director and CEO. “Androck’s extensive mechanical and machining expertise, capability and manufacturing operations will enable Ampcontrol to further accelerate the development of our energy and electromotive solutions at scale to support industry decarbonisation.”

Androck has five workshops located in Rutherford, NSW, and has capabilities in machining, fabrication, hydraulics and electrical repairs. They conduct equipment services and overhauls, including continuous miners, shuttle cars and multi-bolters.

“Keeping manufacturing jobs within Australia has always been important to me,” said Darren Rockley, Androck Managing Director and Owner. “With a workforce of 65 people, I’m excited to see how the Androck product offerings and skilled people can support Ampcontrol, its customers and the wider industry to help make net zero a reality.

“Knowing Androck will be going to the ‘good home’ of Ampcontrol leaves me confident there will be a smooth transition of our business operations for our customers and will see our manufacturing remain onshore.”

Rockley will remain in the business following the acquisition to support the integration of Androck into the Ampcontrol business and focus on strategic growth opportunities.
