About us

Mining and Industrial Surplus is the online store for West Oz Surplus a 100% WA owned and family operated business with over 25 years of experience in the surplus equipment and mining industry.

We offer a large range of new and second-hand parts and equipment from inventory stock takes, JV windups and yard clean-ups. Our goal is to supply a high standard of reusable goods at reasonable and competitive prices.

After 20 odd years in the transport industry Russell started an auction company in Midland WA and gradually expanded interests out into scrap metal, bearings and surplus equipment. He was soon joined by his daughters and sons and so our business evolved and along with our sister company have yards and warehouse situated in Naval Base, Western Australia.
