Decades Providing Tunnelling and Mining Solutions

The Simem Underground Solutions team was founded in 2017 as a result of 12 years of successful partnership between Simem and Team Mixing Technologies. The acquisition of Team Mixing by Simem allowed for an optimal combination of decades of mining and tunnelling equipment design and manufacturing with an equal depth of experience in the heavy civil market.

The continuity of personnel and assets from Team Mixing ensure that our industry depth and experience continue to support existing projects and the alliance with Simem allows for a broader knowledge and experience base, manufacturing resources and market exposure.

Dependable Since 1963

Simem Underground Solutions engineering team is known to thoroughly understand the process and purpose of our projects. This allows us to provide value engineering of robust equipment based on research and field performance to outlast the project and specify components to ensure optimal productivity. Our resulting equipment is a natural extension to our engineering and the reliability and performance is supported by a proactive service organization, spare parts inventories, mechanical and electrical technicians for local and remote support for all our customers.
