The safest way to remove and replace belly plates.
From concept to completion, our focus is on making fitter’s lives safer and easier.
Launched in December 2011, Nivek® Industries Pty Ltd is a proudly Australian-owned manufacturing and fabrication company, priding itself on superior quality products for mine site and earth-moving maintenance applications.
“We are committed to creating innovative products for heavy industry that enhance workplace safety and efficiency. All of our products are simple to use, quick to set up, reliable, and improve the safety and quality of life of those using them.”
The initial concept of TED™ was borne when Kevin Cant, the founder of Nivek Industries narrowly escaped serious injury in 2008 when the belly plate he was removing from a bulldozer slipped and fell. Kevin spent three years in the research, concept and design stage, releasing the first TED™ prototype in 2011.
The design has undergone several upgrades and enhancements since its initial release and now boasts a whole range of attachments enabling it to make a myriad of maintenance jobs safer and physically less stressful for maintenance personnel. Designed by a fitter, for fitters, TED™ is becoming widely respected as a necessary workshop and pit tool by both fitters and management at a rapidly growing rate here in Australia and overseas. The Lift Assist-40, launched in 2019 is the second product line to be designed, made and exported by Nivek Industries with many more to follow in the near future.
Products and made in Australia – exporting to the world
Best known for our Tracked Elevating Device, we are excited to have recently released the Lift Assist System and have several new innovative product lines in the design process.
Our products are made to the highest standards, utilising top quality parts and local suppliers and labour wherever practicable.
Designed to your needs
We can design attachments and adaptations to tailor our products to meet your site’s needs. We can draw, have engineered and manufactured these tailored solutions.
We are passionate about collaborating with industry to bring about effective solutions. This is an incredibly cost-effective method, as our clients generally only pay for the finished product.
We understand the compliance needs of mine operators and provide everything you will need to introduce our products to the site. From training to risk assessments and pre-start checks – we’ve got it ready to go.
