Thyssenkrupp Service Centre capabilities showcased at Copperbelt Mining & Trade Expo 2017, Zambia

thyssenkrupp Service Centre exhibited its product portfolio and capabilities to customers at the Copperbelt Mining and Trade Expo and Conference (CBM-TEC) held from 6 to 8 June 2017 in Kitwe, Zambia. 

Hosted exclusively within the Copperbelt, CBM-TEC is Zambia’s professional attendance technical supplies and equipment trade expo for the Copperbelt region. Zambia’s mining sector contributes over 70% to the country’s foreign exchange earnings. The Expo provides an exclusive and unique opportunity for equipment and service companies to engage directly with the regional mining operations in one convenient place over a three-day period.

“We invited all our customers from across the African continent to visit our stand at the Expo which we shared with EC Mining,” comments, John Stapelberg, the Sales Manager of the thyssenkrupp Service Division.

John confirms that this was a very successful event for thyssenkrupp. “The Expo presented us with the perfect opportunity to meet and share our capabilities with customers we do not always get to see. The excellent contact established during the expo necessitates our return to the region to engage with the various companies.”

John recommends that thyssenkrupp attends the next CBM-TEC in 2019, and adds that “even more emphasis must be placed on our equipment and capabilities.”

Some other prominent companies that exhibited at CBM-TEC included METSO, Hitachi, Murray & Roberts Cementation Zambia, KOMATSU Zambia as well as several smaller companies with Ndola Lime Company, Mopani Copper Mine and Zeco Electricity Company of special interest to thyssenkrupp.
