We are pleased to announce the return of the Elphinstone name to the Global Underground Mining Industry. A recent agreement between Elphinstone and Caterpillar has paved the way for Elphinstone to re-establish their world-renowned brand and commence manufacture of specialised underground mining support vehicles from their original home base of Burnie, Tasmania.
While a return to underground mining had been contemplated by Elphinstone, the move was hastened by Caterpillar’s 2015 announcement they would complete the relocation of their Burnie based manufacturing operations to Rayong, Thailand by first quarter end, 2016.
