Our History

Garrard Jones Engineering Ltd (GJE) was founded in October 1996, initially set up to repair and overhaul Electrical Mining Equipment.

Over the years, the company grew within the mining arena and specialized in Electrical, Mechanical, Hydraulic and fabrication mining work. In 2011, GJE became a product support centre for UK Coal, the largest Deep Coal Mining company within the UK. In addition to this, relationships within India, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Morocco, Russia, America and Iran saw the company become a key exporter of mining equipment.

However, 2013 saw the closure of Daw Mill and Maltby collieries in quick succession. This had a knock on effect which also saw the closures of Thoresby, Kellingley, and Hatfield collieries all in 2015, marking the end of an era.

Recent Years

Over the last 6 years, the company has diversified into Tunnelling, Solar and Wind powered energy, crane repairs and other industrial maintenance and repairs.

Today, with the skills and knowledge developed over the last 20 years the company finds itself repairing a variety of electrical and mechanical equipment such as electric motors, inverters, electro-magnetic clutches, gearboxes, hoists, industrial switchgear, communication systems, as well as manufacturing UPS (uninterruptable power supplies), PCB’s (printed circuit boards) and a host of other electrical and electronic equipment.

In terms of mining we are one a few mining repair centres remaining in the UK, a key supplier to the remaining deep mines in the UK and are also a continued export supplier to the aforementioned mining countries.
