Epiroc acquires Aussie connectivity provider Radlink


Epiroc is now the majority owner of Australian mine connectivity provider Radlink.

The Swedish mining and infrastructure partner announced the acquisition, which saw the business purchase a 53 per cent majority stake of Radlink in September 2022 but has had to wait until Q4 to officially complete the purchase.

In its September announcement, Epiroc chief executive and president Helena Hedblom says the deal will further help support mining companies Down Under.

“Radlink’s powerful network connectivity solutions will support Epiroc as we continue to provide mining companies with automation and digital solutions that make operations safer and more efficient,” Hedblom says.

“We look forward to welcoming the strong team at Radlink to Epiroc.”

Based in Perth, WA, Radlink designs, delivers and integrates wireless data and voice communication networks, as well as supporting infrastructure, to surface and underground mines throughout Australia.

Radlink boasts approximately 330 employees and revenues of around $145 million in the financial year ending June 30, 2022.

Epiroc says wireless connectivity providers such as Radlink play a pivotal role throughout the mining industry, as robust wireless networks support the industry’s automation, including autonomous and tele-remote solutions to strengthen safety and productivity at mine sites.
