Mining & Tunnelling

DavyMarkham have a long and proud history in the Mining and Tunnelling sector with some particular highlights being the building of the tunnelling equipment used for the Channel Tunnel, Channel Tunnel Rail Link, London Underground, Moscow Metro and the Dartford, Rotherhithe and Mersey tunnels.

DavyMarkham has a long standing association with the mining industry across the globe and is ideally placed to provide hoisting systems for these mines.  As more accessible natural resources are exhausted new mines tend to extract minerals from greater depths with higher payloads. We supply hoists of all types and sizes for all underground mines, including friction, single drum, multi-rope Blair and sinking hoists, stage winches, haulage units, head sheave and deflector sheave assemblies.. 

DavyMarkham have unrivalled expertise in the supply and installation of over 300 hoists worldwide and have supplied equipment for some of the deepest mines in North America and some of the planets highest mines in the Andes.
