It’s a global industry that is undergoing consolidation resulting in fewer, but larger, companies dominating the market. These large customers see value in establishing relationships with ABB as we provide service and product support at their mine sites as well as with their OEMs and EPCs partners.
The demand for mined products will continue to increase while remaining ore deposits will be lower grade, resulting in mines that must be larger and more productive in order to remain competitive. These large operators look for leading edge technology from ABB to meet their goals of increased reliability, reduced energy cost and increased automation and mechanization. ABB’s proven ability to provide products and services that exceed these expectations make us an ideal partner with global mining companies.
