Minetec was founded by Greg Anderson in 2001 and acquired by Codan in 2012.  Initially, Greg serviced the mining sector from his ute, offering installation and radio electronic maintenance services. Within the first year of operation, Minetec was awarded a major maintenance contract with Roche Mining (known as Downer Mining today) and established itself as a significant partner in servicing radio communications in mine sites.  Over the following years, it grew into an established business in the mining technology and services industry, by providing both enabling communications solutions as well as value-adding technology for productivity and safety purposes.
