Sandro Scherf, CEO of mobile crushing specialist Pilot Crushtec International, may admit that business has been less buoyant over the past year but remains optimistic about 2014 and the future. This is thanks to a well thought out strategy aimed at meeting the mining sector’s evolving comminution needs, locally and internationally, writes Laura Cornish.
There are always benefits to be gained from a less resilient mining cycle which we have been experiencing over the last year or so,” Scherf starts. “For Pilot Crushtec International, it means really focusing on our customers, ‘upping’ our service levels and improving our after-sales support. There is always room for improvement in this area and we have been focusing heavily on this.” “With the weaker rand our business vision has focused more on South Africa.We do not see it as an alternative business option by comparison with Africa, but still an equipment supply and service destination of choice. The country will always remain a significant business contributor and something we place great emphasis on at Pilot Crushtec International.”
