WORKING COLLABORATIVELY TO DELIVER PROJECT PROFITABILITY
Founded in 2000 as Sweeney’s Mechanical Services, SMS provided maintenance, refurbishment, sales and service support for heavy duty earthmoving. In 2007, rental hire services were added to the portfolio and the company’s name changed to SMS Rental, before evolving to SMS Innovative Mining Solutions.
In 2016, the contract mining division was formed to deliver an end-to-end service offering to the surface mining sector. SMS Mining Services (as it is now known as) has the unique ability to work under different contract models with the capability to deliver fleet rental, repairs, maintenance and contract mining.
Today, SMS Mining Services is a part of a much larger and stronger group of companies. In October 2018, we announced a major milestone for the business – the merger with Rivet. Rivet is an Australian provider of specialised transport and logistics solutions. Collectively, the Group has approximately 1,300 employees, across 15 locations and a presence in five states nationally.
