Cape Crushing, Underground Services join together to form Cape

The merger of the two companies brings together the mining services, haulage and crushing expertise of Cape Crushing with Underground Service’s leading experience in utilities and infrastructure, under one roof as the business looks to capitalise on the combined synergies of both entities.

Cape Executive General Manager Peter Rowles said the coming together of the companies under one brand is a new chapter in their near 30 year history.

“The merger makes us a leaner, more efficient and more competitive business while the competencies and experience of the businesses are mutually complimentary,” he said.

“Our aim is to provide world class civil, mining services and utilities solutions to the Resources, Infrastructure and Utilities sectors.”

Mr Rowles acknowledged it was currently a tough environment to operate in, especially in the mining industry and said the rebrand had come at the right time for the company.

“It’s given us a renewed focus on increased productivity, cost efficiency, value through innovation and continuous improvement that will allow us better service our current clients’ needs as well as win new contracts to support future growth.

“The creation of the single entity Cape strongly positions the company in the market for future growth and we’re committed to this while ensuring quality, consistency and innovation in what we do.”
