Swanson Industries is headquartered in West Virginia, US, and operates manufacturing, plating, repair and distribution centres through Australia, Chile and the US.
Swanson Industries president and CEO, Steve Sangalli, commented: “We are very pleased to bring Waratah Engineering into the Swanson family. With Waratah’s suite of capital equipment and its experience in remanufacturing longwall roof support systems and mobile equipment, the partnership fulfils another step in our strategy to be a full service supplier to the Australian mining markets.”
Waratah complements Swanson’s 2014 acquisition of Jarvie Engineering and Goninan Platers, also located in NSW.
“The combination of industry expertise is such a natural fit that the sharing of resources, practices and knowledge is assured to improve our combined ability to provide Swanson’s international customers with a fully-capable alternative to the traditional OEM suppliers,” added Sangalli.
