Some companies aim for new heights. We’re reaching for greater depths.

SMS Equipment and Komatsu announced new agreements this February that names SMS Equipment as as dealer of Komatsu underground hard rock mining equipment across most of Canada and in Alaska.

Expanding our mining portfolio

The new deal with Komatsu expands our offering to include a portfolio of underground mining products and services among our strong lineup of equipment, advanced technologies, parts, service and support for the mining sector.

“The transition of Komatsu’s hard rock mining portfolio to SMS Equipment is an exciting development in our relationship in Canada,” says Dennis Chmielewski, Executive Vice President, Mining at SMS Equipment. “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.”

Saskatchewan and Ontario are exceptions to underground mining deal. Those provinces will continue to be served by Komatsu directly.

“Komatsu and SMS Equipment have a shared goal of maximizing value to underground mining customers,” says 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.”

A phased transition

The transition of customers and products to SMS Equipment will begin in Quebec this month. 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.


Diverse solutions for industry

The new portfolio of underground hard rock mining products joins our diverse offering for the mining sector. It launches with a range of Komatsu-owned conversion equipment and technology, like Montabert, as well exclusive Komatsu underground hard rock mining equipment, including underground LHDs, trucks, drills and shaft equipment. Parts and service will also be provided to support the new lineup as it rolls out across the network.
