Company Background

Maubra Utility Products (MUP) was established in 2010. MUP's vision was to design and manufacture a trackless mine vehicle that was robust, versatile, safe and economical. In this way there was a big focus to reduce down-time and offer a range of quality vehicles to the mining industry that will contribute to each sector of the underground mining environment. Today we have accomplished that vision and gone far beyond what we had dreamed with constant upgrades and innovation taking us into the future.

Since the inception of the company it has established consistent relationships with a number of the big mining houses in South Africa such as Anglo Gold, DRA, JIC, Harmony, Xstrata and Sibanye Gold to name but a few. We continue to seek ways to make our value offering current, relevant, durable, practical and affordable.

In 2013 we expanded the business and became an official dealer for Kubota, Polaris, Linhai and Kipor for the North West region. In February 2015 our first branch was opened in Lydenburg servicing the eastern region mines and the local community with the product offerings from Kubota, Polaris, Linhai and Kipor.
