Contract Miner of the Year: Mader Group

Mader Group

Mader Group has been supporting the mining industry since 2005.

Mader Group has been supporting the mining industry since 2005 and has grown from a single-man band to a company that now has a presence in Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas and is represented by 1600 employees.

The company prides itself on delivering its maintenance services quickly and efficiently, keeping its employees online and running strong. In a mining industry where maintaining uptime is crucial to profitability, this is a god-send.

Recognised with the Contract Miner of the Year Award at the 2021 Prospect Awards, Mader said its accomplishments were testament to the company’s unrivalled service.

“Mader is not your typical mining contractor. We provide unique and flexible ‘tap on, tap off’ maintenance services that make a real difference to our customers’ everyday operations in helping them achieve plant availability and production targets,” the company said in a statement.

The “tap on, tap off” service means there are no minimum engagement periods or lock-in contracts for Mader clients, enabling them more freedom of choice.

“The flexible nature of our services enables customers to access specialised technicians during peak load periods, or for short or extended engagements to support their scheduled or unplanned equipment maintenance.

“Consistently striving to better support our customers and evolve with industry trends, 2021 saw our Australian operations introduce several new services, thus helping to enhance returns and improve operational efficiencies for customers.”

Mader can reactively mobilise small to large teams of tradespeople in quickly changing landscapes to meet customers’ demands. This proven business model has now been successfully rolled out more than 20 times across new service areas and regions since company inception.

With a blue-sky business model, Mader has cultivated an inclusive workplace culture built on principles of mateship and camaraderie. This is a big reason the company continues to be such as a strong performer in the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.

“It is evident the investment by Mader in its people, culture and other business infrastructure is reflected in our ability to attract and retain high-quality tradespeople, who provide superior services for our customers.”
