Becker Mining will exhibit its communication and automation solutions, energy distribution systems, mechanical, electrical and electronic mining products, as well as transportation and roof support systems.
“In today’s severely depressed mining environment, we expect Electra Mining to provide important growth opportunities for companies in the mining and industrial sectors,” says Becker Mining senior general manager Tom Searle.
[quote]Through its global network of group companies, Becker Mining has endured difficult trading conditions in the mining industry.
Although the local operation has been forced to downsize, measures are in place to optimise Becker Mining’s production and sales capabilities, without compromising the quality of the company’s products and services.
The company has also appointed specialist distributors to further extend the supply and support of its products into the African market.
“With the anticipated recovery of commodity prices, we predict an upturn in business, with increased awareness of safety and improved methods of preventing injuries and loss of lives,” says Searle.
Becker’s equipment is manufactured by three wholly owned South African manufacturing companies – EMIS, for electrical energy distribution systems; Bellambie Mining & Industrial, for hoist rope attachments, roof support systems and lifting equipment and Becker Electronics, for electronic automation and communication systems.
Additional specialised product solutions and services are sourced from group operations abroad.
The company’s extensive product portfolio, which complies with government mining regulations and mining house specifications, includes shaft safety components, underground and tunnel supports, transport systems and communication and collision avoidance systems.
The range also encompasses pumps, electrical and electronics systems, mechanical equipment, as well as lifting and maintenance equipment.
