General Electric Co. (>> General Electric Company) agreed to buy Australia-based mining-equipment maker Industrea Limited (>> Industrea Ltd.) for about A$700 million ($696.6 million), adding to its footprint in a fast-growing sector.

The industrial conglomerate also agreed to acquire privately held equipment maker Fairchild International, a U.S. mining supplier, for an undisclosed amount.

GE's shares were recently up 4 cents at $18.44 after hours. The stock has declined by about 7.5% over the past year.
