SMS Equipment expands underground offering with Komatsu

Under a new deal, SMS Equipment has been named dealer of Komatsu underground hard rock mining equipment across most of Canada and in Alaska.

“With the expansion of our product lineup, SMS Equipment is now positioned to serve Canada and Alaska’s diverse mining needs, whether surface, underground or a combination of the two,” said Dennis Chmielewski, executive vice president, Mining at SMS Equipment. 

Both the product line and service area will expand throughout the year, with full service to eight provinces, three territories and the state of Alaska expected by 2025. However, SMS Equipment noted that Saskatchewan and Ontario are exceptions to the underground mining deal. These provinces will continue to be served directly by Komatsu.

“Komatsu and SMS Equipment have a shared goal of maximizing value to underground mining customers,” said Kyle Rhoderick, GM of Underground Hard Rock Mining at Komatsu North America. 

“In markets where we can enhance value, we’re pairing Komatsu’s equipment with SMS Equipment’s extensive distribution network, support specialists and convenience services.”
