The demand for heavy equipment is high in Africa, and BTM Machinery is there, not merely selling equipment, but literally on the ground with several facilities in continent, hundreds of employees, and dozens of pieces of refurbished heavy machinery in stock.
BTM Machinery: A Presence in the Ghana Gold Market
For the past decade, BTM Machinery has steadily built a continent-wide presence in the African heavy equipment market, beginning in Ghana. The West African nation has been a major gold exporter since the days of panning in streams. Today, mining is king. Gold accounts for over ninety per cent of Ghana’s mineral exports, making it the second largest gold exporter in Africa.
Recently BTM's presence in Ghana has grown by further strengthening their relationship with their long-time local representative in Ghana - Kwasi Osei Ofori, Chairman at Erdmac Company Limited. The relationship allows BTM to provide faster access to high-quality refurbished machines at competitive prices.
In Ghana today, there are over 300 registered small-scale mining groups and ninety mine support service companies. They all need heavy equipment, and BTM Machinery is there to meet their needs. Since 2007, BTM machinery has sold dozens of Caterpillar bulldozers, motor graders, excavators, wheel loaders, and compactors in transactions ranging from smaller scale to ones funded by the World Bank. BTM Machinery customers include premier mining names such as Engineers & Planners, Ltd., Joshob Construction Company, Noble Mineral Resources and Golden Star Resources.
BTM Machinery: Success Builds Upon Success
Lately, with offices in the national capital of Accra and the de facto gold capital of Takoradi, BTM Machinery’s success has spread outward from the mining industry, attracting customers such as quarry operator ESM Company and real estate developer Regimanuel Gray Ghana Ltd. “That is particularly rewarding,” says BTM Machinery founder and CEO Blake Thornton. “We came for the mining business, and success has built on success. That’s because BTM is in-country, part of the business community. We have people, offices, garages and a wide selection of heavy equipment in stock. Ghana may be 6,000 miles from home, but it’s not just some far outpost; I went there five times last year!”
In the United States BTM Machinery recently experienced increased activity due to the volatile weather across the lower 48 States.
