AARD Mining Equipment (Pty) Ltd
The business was established in 1983 as part of the Boart Longyear group of companies. The company was sold to the current shareholders – a consortium comprising Nedbank Capital Private Equity, Matasis Mining Equipment (a BBBEE group) and Management – in 2008, and the company was renamed AARD Mining Equipment. As a result, AARD is 65.39% black-owned (24.48% Black Women Ownership) and controlled, and has a Level 4 BBBEE rating.
