UGM has been the ADDCAR agent in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia since 2011 with several UGM executives having a long association with highwall mining and the ADDCAR business.
Our Ashland facility in Kentucky is ideally located to provide support to the majority of underground coal produced in the US.
UGM’s focus is on the delivery of contract services and providing cost effective options for coal producers in the current economic climate. To further support our highwall mining business, we have agencies in the US, Australia, India and South Africa.
