GHH’s wide range of equipment, focused particularly on loaders (LHDs) and articulated dump trucks, are said to enhance Komatsu’s growing underground mining product offerings.

This is also said to include aftermarket parts and service support throughout the entire lifetime of the equipment.

“The talented GHH staff are now part of Komatsu and our new combined team will work together to expand offerings and increase customer access to products in new territories,” said Peter Salditt, president of Komatsu´s Mining Business Division.

“We are excited to start collaborating to add value to our customers’ operations.”

Komatsu says that it is committed to expanding its underground mining offering for global customers by adding GHH’s factories and rebuilding facilities in key markets in Europe, Southern Africa, India and Chile.
