Summary

 

Maintenance and aftermarket services are taking an increasingly important role in the Australian mining sector. Following significant capital investment in new production capacity from 2008 to 2012, there is now record-high Australian commodity production, leading to a much larger mining equipment fleet, all of which requires maintenance and aftermarket servicing.

 

Many original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been quick to realize the benefits of providing better servicing, and have moved to adopt more product lifecycle agreements with customers. As such, more OEMs have adopted life-cycle management as standard practice, and opened aftermarket service centers.

 

In February and March 2014, Timetric surveyed 110 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers currently working in 90 Australian mines. Respondents were asked specific questions about their preferences for maintenance and aftermarket services, including contracting and companies used.
