Denmark: FLSmidth has completed its acquisition of Sandvik Mining Systems following the transfer of assets in South Africa. The process was mostly completed in November 2017 with the exception of assets in South Africa, which was delayed due to merger control clearance. The acquisition includes continuous surface mining and minerals handling technologies and competences that strengthen the company's core minerals business.
"With the completion of the South African assets we have added references, local expertise and improved ability to deliver complete solutions to our Sub-Saharan customers. We welcome our new colleagues and customers to FLSmidth," said Manfred Schaffer, Group Executive Vice President, Minerals Division of FLSmidth.
As part of the transfer, FLSmidth will either assume existing orders or provide project management services on behalf of Sandvik on selected on-going projects and supply parts and services for the installed equipment.
