Eaton targets South African mining industry in growth drive

October 2012 Analytical Instrumentation & Environmental Monitoring

Eaton Corporation recently hosted a technology day in Johannesburg for its African customers, kick-starting a sales and marketing campaign targeting its portfolio of products and services that now span all stages of the mining value chain.

In the last year, Eaton has seen rapid growth in South Africa following the acquisition of the Actom Low Voltage Equipment business units, making Eaton a leading supplier of electrical products and services to the South African mining industry. When combined with its wide range of hydraulic and vehicle group products and services, Eaton can now address its customers’ key power management challenges at all six stages of the mining process: exploration; production drill and blast; load and haul; crush and screen; material handling and processing.

The technology day was attended by senior global and EMEA regional Eaton leaders, including recently appointed global mining director, Simon Meester and Eaton’s new electrical sector managing director for Africa, Shane Kilfoil. Commenting on Eaton’s solutions for the mining industry, Meester said: “Mine managers are under constant pressure from owners to maximise output, while reducing cost per metric ton. To meet these demands, our customers expect support from suppliers with proven products and services that deliver consistent uptime, without compromising safety. Our message is simple: Eaton is a supplier able to address our customers’ most critical power management challenges at every stage of the value chain from the drilling of the first exploration holes, all the way through to final production.”
