Powering the Mining Industry - an exclusive Q&A with Australian Power Equipment

transcript of interview with APAC Outlook Magazine:

Q: Can you give us an overview of Australian Power Equipment?

Certainly! Originally launched as AC2 Electrical by directors Andrew Cockbain and Abby Crawford in 2020 during the pandemic, we quickly grew into Australian Power Equipment in 2021. Our portfolio expanded to include top-tier agencies, and we began offering in-stock equipment refurbished to provide immediate solutions to distressed sites. We are backed by our trusted partners Untel cables and B&D transformers, and our strong connections with suppliers and clients have earned us opportunities to work with esteemed companies like Fortescue Metals, John Holland, Anglo American and Glencore.

Q: What sets Australian Power Equipment apart from its competitors in the market?

Our unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction and dedication to excellence make us stand out. We believe in building strong business relationships with trusted partners such as PBE Rutherford, to ensure that we only supply equipment that meets the highest industry standards. We are thankful for the opportunities to prove ourselves to our clients, and we always strive to provide the best-in-market equipment and service

Q: Safety is paramount in the mining industry. How does Australian Power Equipment ensure its equipment meets the highest safety standards?

Safety is indeed our top priority. We work exclusively with reputable suppliers for our new equipment, ensuring that all products undergo rigorous testing and meet Australian industry standards. Additionally, our refurbished equipment is sent to qualified third-party certification organisations, such as PBE Rutherford, to guarantee safety and compliance before re-entering market.

Q: What’s Australian Power Equipment’s position on sustainability?

We are strongly committed to sustainability and actively focused on contributing to the circular economy. By repurposing stranded assets and refurbishing them, we positively impact the environment and help clients experiencing unplanned shutdowns to get back up and running quickly. Our Critical Sourcing services and in-stock equipment, which may undergo minimal modifications to be purpose-ready, reduce the need for new production, save resources, and minimise the transport footprint removing international shipping. This approach complements our new equipment sales, creating a balanced and sustainable approach.

Q:What is the vision of Australian Power Equipment for the future of the mining industry?

We envision being the go-to partner for the mining industry and OEMs, providing innovative and sustainable solutions that enable seamless operations, reduce environmental impact and drive overall growth.

It’s easy! They can visit our website or reach out to us on 1300 040 500. We are always keen to provide personalised power solutions for every site’s unique requirements.

Q: Any final message for the mining community from Australian Power Equipment?

We understand the critical role mining plays in Australia’s economy, and we are committed to empowering this industry with reliable, sustainable and cost-effective power solutions. Partner with us for a more powerful and prosperous mining future.
