It will also ensure more diverse insight and knowledge to drive the development forward with the target of providing leading technology for the world's mining market”, says FORCIT Group’s CEO Joakim Westerlund.
“We have been working with O-Pitblast for a while and this joint venture will allow Enaex to project this partnership in the long term and to continue developing O-Pitblast solutions. This integration will enable us to capture significant synergies in the Drill&Blast process and continue to provide value for our customers”, says Pablo Wallach, VP Innovation & Marketing at Enaex.
