Mine Site Technologies has continued its strategic expansion with the opening of its newest sales and support office in Europe. Located in Berlin, Germany, the office is centrally located to support MST’s existing European customers and provide a foothold location for continued expansion throughout Europe, Russia, and other CIS countries.
Mine Site Technologies has had a presence in Europe for years through strategic partnerships with independent representatives and distributors. Those partnerships will continue and will now be supported by an MST office located within the region. A good example is the cooperation agreement that MST has with Haso S.C. in Poland.
Coinciding with the opening of this new office in Berlin are new cooperation agreements signed with “Promtex” in Moscow which will focus on Russian mineral mining customers, and “Research and Production Company – Complex Automated Systems”, in Tomsk, Russia which will focus on supporting coal mining customers throughout Russia.
Mike Foletti, MST’s General Manager – International, commented, “The appointment of Igor Korolev as our new Vice President – ERCA (Europe, Russia, Central Asia), combined with the creation of our new sales and support office in Berlin is a long term commitment by MST to the ongoing support of our customers and resellers in this region. We have recently installed new ImPact Communications and Tracking systems in both Norway and Turkey which further demonstrates the global mining industry’s continued investment in our solutions and technologies.”
The international expansion of Mine Site Technologies is not unique to Europe. MST’s footprint continues to expand throughout Canada, South America, Africa, and Asia. Customer demand for MST’s unique “ImPact” wireless mining communications system is quickly pulling the company into new international markets. These new mining customers are quickly learning the benefits that the MST ImPact “One Network” system can provide in enhanced productivity and safety.
