Westernex began life in 1987 and from very small beginnings has grown to be one of, if not the largest Mining & Exploration Supply organisation in the world.

How did we do it?  It's called service!

One reason is our firm belief in SERVICE as our customers come first no matter what. We will always go the extra mile. With Quotes sent the same day or within 24 hours and goods sent to the site within 24 to 48 hours.

From opening the warehouse out of hours. Meeting someone at or delivering to an airport out of hours with a last-minute requirement. Or driving hundreds of kilometres to deliver an urgent item to a mine site or exploration camp. All of these things and more Westernex staff have done and will do again.


Another reason would be Quality

Long term relationships with factories, many of which produce exclusively for us, that allow us to exercise control over quality and to constantly work with them to improve and innovate. Many other suppliers have been providing us with service and quality for over 25 years. In 2014 Westernex achieved ISO 9001:2008 Certification further underlining our focus on Quality Assurance.

Our Staff “Our Greatest Asset “

The fantastic team in all of our locations, be it Perth, Kalgoorlie, Brisbane, Mt Isa, Cape Town or our office in Accra. They all have the same wish to serve and please our customers and it is they who have made this private family owned company what it is today.
