Supporting growth in Africa

Since opening its new facility in 2014 in Kitwe, Zambia, the Sandvik Mining support centre has upped its efficiency levels, enabling faster turnaround times for the maintenance and repair of mining fleets throughout the region of central Africa.

Over the past year and a half, the facility has also seen a 60 percent increase in rebuilds received from customers, combined with the reduction of complete rebuild lead times by an impressive 45 percent to just 12 weeks. Simultaneously, the company has extended its safety record to 4,240,440 hours without lost time injuries.
Sandvik Mining in Zambia plays a pivotal role in assisting mines to develop infrastructure and supply appropriate mining solutions to meet customers’ production and revenue targets. Up-to-date equipment and tooling, along with globally accepted management systems are also in place to ensure services and support are the same in Zambia as they are everywhere else in the world.
