Robertson Geologging Ltd SIEBTECHNIK GMBH SRK Exploration


Peacocke, Simpson and Associates has been in business since 1985 and its speciality has been the development of innovative processes, not only to solve metallurgical problems but also to develop new processes within our industry.

We soon realized that the equipment necessary to implement these innovations simply didn’t exist, or was inappropriate. APT was formed to address this need by manufacturing exactly what was required without compromise.

As a piece of equipment is developed, or possibly even a complete plant, this then becomes available as a product that can be duplicated and supplied to the industry in general. This capability has been expanded to the extent that over forty off-the-shelf designs are now available as products that can be supplied to fit a wide range of needs.

The emphasis has been placed upon complete, modular, pre-assembled package solutions. Our engineering team are constantly engaged in design and development such that even if a client’s specific needs require a tailored solution, the majority of the engineering is likely to have already been completed. This results in a rapid cycle time with minimal added costs and a high degree of confidence in the solution.

The combination of in-house laboratories, own-manufacturing facilities and a highly innovative design team in-between gives APT a powerful capability to deliver a quality, advanced solution in the shortest possible time and at highly competitive rates.
