Six figure equipment investment supports jobs at County Durham mine

Banks Mining has made a six figure investment into equipment it Bradley surface mine in a project supporting over 41 jobs.

The Meadowfield-based firm has invested in a Komatsu PC3000-6 excavator for use at the Bradley site in County Durham.

In addition to supporting the existing 41 jobs at Bradley mine and others along the supply chain, the acquisition of the excavator has prompted the recruitment of a locally-based engineer to be based onsite for servicing.

Banks Mining’s Bradley site currently supplies coal to industrial customers across the UK, and the family-owned firm has announced plans to extract around 100,000 tonnes of coal from land to the west of the existing site.

Plant director of Banks Mining, Robbie Bentham, explains: “Giving our highly-skilled teams the equipment they need to work our sites in the safest, most efficient and most environmentally responsible way possible is an essential part of our overall operational strategy.

“We’re living up to our promise to provide local employment, contract opportunities and revenues for community improvements through the Bradley site.”
