ABOUT UMS GROUP
UMS Group (United Mining Services), has its origins in the South African mining sector but serves global mining and minerals processing clientele. Our unique differentiator is that we are a single-source provider with the expertise to undertake all concept, design, engineering, construction, commissioning and refurbishment projects for our MINING AND PROCESSING CLIENTS. As a single source provider we ensure that the construction teams who execute a project are already involved upfront during the design, engineering and procurement phases of a project. This reduces time, cost and risk to the client in getting their projects delivered as effectively and safely as possible.
Through the acquisition of UMS METS (Mining Engineering Technical Services) and UMS Shaft Sinkers we have a library of knowledge and expertise that spans 6 decades. The Company has some of the best and most experienced mining experts found anywhere including professional engineers (mining, mechanical, electrical, C&I, civil and structural), design engineers, project engineers and project managers, sinking specialists, project planners and schedulers, natural scientists (geology and rock mechanics) as well as experts in project control and procurement. The Company’s management and technical teams are recognised industry experts with decades of global experience.
The UMS Group through its UMS Shaft Sinkers division has particular expertise in all facets of underground mining and the construction of underground facilities. Our expertise also stretches to tunnelling and hydro projects.
Built on the back of decades of experience in the design and optimisation of materials handling systems for mining clients, UMS METS is now able to provide similar services to its metallurgical processing clients. We have built a team of highly skilled and recognised metallurgical process experts who can provide complete solutions for minerals process plant systems from process and infrastructure design, process optimisation to construction and commissioning of such plant systems. This includes EPC and EPCM services. Our key service focus is to provide clients with fit for purpose process solutions using modular approaches where practical. In addition, we provide clients with access to adaptable contracting methodologies (EPC/LSTK, EPCM, Cost + or Hybrid).
