The Schlam Group has amalgamated Schlam Engineering, DT HiLoad and the Pilbara Clean Machines under the name Schlam, to unify the three companies under one banner.

According to Schlam, this change was to better reflect the company’s global status of making mining equipment more productive.

Chief executive officer Ryan Schlam said the move would provide a stable platform for future growth.

“Bringing the group together under the one name will better position us to achieve our purpose of ensuring that the customer experience is exceptional,” Schlam said.

“How we will do this by solving the whole of equipment maintenance and payload challenges that keep our customers’ mines from being better tomorrow than it was today.”

The Schlam brand has been split into three distinct but related divisions to cover payload solutions, people solutions and engineering solutions.

According to Schlam, the roots of the company are secured deep within the people solutions division.

“For almost 25 years we’ve been providing the industry with superstars in equipment maintenance, rebuilds and shutdowns,” he said.

“Be it mechanical, electrical or fabrication, our people are ready to join your team for as long as you need them or bring their expertise and field equipment to your site at a moment’s notice.”

What was previously DT HiLoad, the payload solutions division will continue the manufacturing and development products such as the Hercules and Bullant trays and Barracuda buckets for tier 1 mining clients spanned across six continents.

Schlam said the company’s growth was made possible by its engineering mindset and holistic view of equipment productivity.

“Engineering is at the heart of everything we do,” he said. “Productivity problems don’t solve themselves and our engineering division will give customers access to people and technology that will enable them to help them rethink and reinvent how they’re currently doing things.”

The three new divisions will be headquartered at Schlam’s Forrestfield, Perth office.
