About Us

At VLI, we have been supplying specialist mining equipment and related services to the resources industry for more than 30 years. Over the years, we have undergone significant expansion as a result of strong organic growth, and a program of tactical amalgamations.

Today, after having joined forces with several market leaders in terms of technical expertise and market share, VLI enjoys a reputation, both in Australia and abroad, as a dominant force in the supply of specialist mining equipment and related services.

Our History

Our foundation is built upon the strategic acquisitions and mergers of well-respected brand names such as Valley Longwall Drilling, Tyton, SMV, Juganaut, PitTop and Unirod. Combined, these resources bring together extensive experience and a broad range of products and services, all to the benefit of our customers.
