Combining resources for strata control

2008 Dec 03

A global co-operation agreement has been signed by Atlas Copco and Minova International to provide miners, tunnellers and civil engineers with access to the world’s most comprehensive range of products and know-how in the field of ground control and geotechnics.

Atlas Copco and Minova International, the ground control division of the Orica Group, have reached an agreement to cross-market their combined product ranges. In what is a unique move in this highly specialized field, the deal means that customers will now have access to the broad range of products and know-how of both suppliers, regardless of which one they choose. At the same time, both partners emphasize that the brands will remain and that the two companies will continue to be active in their respective markets.
