About Us

Introducing Consulmet

Founded in 1993, Consulmet is an award-winning engineering group focused on the fast-tracked design, construction, operation and maintenance of turnkey processing plants for minerals and metals.  Many of our clients, including major producers such as Rio Tinto and Anglo American, have benefited significantly from our engagement by reducing project capital costs, compressing delivery schedules and simplifying operations. 

We have successfully implemented greenfield and brownfield projects across Africa, Australia, North America, and Asia.  Consulmet excels in delivering projects in remote locations, harsh climatic conditions, and developing countries.

Headquartered in the UK and with offices in Australia, South Africa and across sub-Saharan Africa, we have a workforce of over 300 dedicated professionals.  Our global presence reflects our commitment to providing our customers with superior service and solutions, irrespective of location.
