Prompted by a near miss during his time working as a mining fitter removing a belly plate from a dozer, our company founder Kevin Cant went searching for a safer way to remove belly plates in the field.
Discovering the concerningly high death and disablement toll of belly plate crush injuries but no suitable alternative, Kevin launched himself into designing a solution. Kevin was determined to design a product that would make belly plate removal and replacement safe by removing the fitter from the deadly crush zone and saving a whole lot of manual handling along the way.
After 3 years of research and trial and error TED 001 was built, and Nivek Industries was created, initially operating from Kevin’s garden shed. TED’s componentry has become more technologically advanced, the range of attachments has grown dramatically as has our business, but the one thing that will never change is the underlying premise on which TED was built:
To make the lives of fitters safer and easier!
“Out in the field TED, really comes into it’s own; the downtime savings are in the hours, and TED’s versatility is endless.”
Dan, Maintenance Superintendent
“TED is a great safety innovation, taking employees out of the line of fire. Unfortunately there’s still people out there getting hurt, and sadly fatal injuries have occurred from belly plates on dozers. TED is solving a real issue. Every site needs a TED!”
Albert Scheepers GM – Peabody, Wambo Mine
“TED’s worth its weight in gold safety wise. TED has made our site a safer, more efficient workplace”
Lloyd, Leading Hand
