First established in 1993, Consulmet focused its primary business activities on the provision of metallurgical test-work services to the mining and mineral processing industries. These services were later expanded to incorporate project engineering and management services to capital equipment suppliers of metallurgical processing equipment.

During the period of 1996 to 2000 the company consolidated its service provision activities and focused on trading in consumer commodities, expanding this aspect to achieve business stability.

In 2000, Consulmet developed a range of modular reagent plants and secured the Falcon gravity concentrator agency for Africa. Consulmet then continued to develop in the reagent plant business and introduced modular gold plants to its product portfolio.

The company expanded significantly in 2004 with the introduction of modular diamond plants to its range of process solutions. From 2004 to 2014 Consulmet developed from a single company to a group of companies, each with their own unique specialisations in mineral processing, metals recovery and engineering consulting.

Consulmet Australia opened in 2010 with offices in Brisbane and Perth.

Today, Consulmet is a specialist engineering group focused on the fast-tracked design and construction of minerals and metals processing plants primarily on a fixed-price basis.
