Mining and quarrying

Providing industries with expert fleet support

  • Mining and quarrying activities make a vital contribution to the country’s productivity and prosperity. It’s their materials that make building new homes, schools, offices and factories possible and keep our rail and road networks running. At Hitachi Capital we understand all aspects of this vital sector, from the ground up.

  • Our specialist teams have an in-depth understanding of the challenges involved in surface mining and quarrying, and across the wider construction and infrastructure sectors.

    Working with you as a trusted partner, we’ll ensure your fleet is readily available, safe and well maintained at all times.

Our approach


Surface mining and quarrying require highly specialised vehicles. These can be extremely costly to purchase outright, with some machines costing millions of pounds. Our expert guidance and flexible leasing options take the pressure off, allowing you to choose the option that’s right for you and freeing up capital to invest elsewhere in your business.

Optimising performance

Your vehicles work in extremely tough and demanding environments, so keeping them commissioned and minimising costly downtime are top priorities. Our specialist downtime management team use real-time data from on-board telematics to monitor operating hours, tracking, idle time, downtime, fuel consumption and operating modes to optimise vehicle performance and efficiency and deliver tangible savings for your business.

Safety and compliance

Safety is paramount on busy mining and quarrying sites, so it’s essential that your vehicles are operating correctly and are fully compliant. We’ll work closely with you to optimise vehicle compliance, availability and safetyOur machine management services cover maintenance, defect reporting, onsite servicing and repair, damage recharge and management information reporting.

Many projects call for a wide range of earth moving machines that can perform in extremely challenging environments. From giant hydraulic excavators to cement trucks, rigid dump trucks and heavy mobile equipment, we can source or design and build specialist or bespoke vehicles and equipment to match the rigorous demands of your unique fleet.
