Hyspec is now able to provide consigned workshops in the DRC, complete with hose assembly equipment, stock and teams of hose technicians.
A first consigned workshop is expected to be set up at the Kibali Gold Mine in July 2014, to serve all of the mine’s contractors on site. A central warehouse and workshop is currently being deployed in Lubumbashi, and should be operational in July 2014 as well. Lubumbashi will serve as a central base to cater for the needs of mining contractors and other industries active in the Katanga area. Stock to mine site based workshops will also be resupplied from there.
“We expect to deploy a number of other mine site based workshops by the end of 2014 in the DRC”, explains Bertrand Moins, Hyspec DRC Operations Manager. “The mining industry in the DRC is very dynamic and there is a lot of demand for high quality hydraulic hoses and related services. There are also a number of additional markets that we believe we can address in the DRC, such as the road construction industry.”
