DYWIDAG Systems International (DSI) has signed agreements to acquire Jennmar businesses outside the US and sell its US Mining business to Jennmar

DSI to acquire Jennmar businesses in Australia, Europe, Latin America and China (50% share)
Jennmar to acquire DSI US Mining business
Customers will benefit from broadest product offering on the market and combined resources
Luxembourg, February 2nd 2016 – Jennmar and DSI have signed an agreement under which DSI will acquire Jennmar businesses in Australia, Europe, Latin America and China (50% share). Jennmar China, along with well-established jointly owned businesses in South Africa and Australia, will operate under the ROCBOLT Technologies brand.

Combining the strengths of Jennmar and DSI organizations will allow DSI to offer its customers the most comprehensive portfolio in ground support products and services. Envisaged improvements will significantly enhance DSI’s customer service level and R&D resourcing, while further improving its cost position. DSI will be in an excellent position to offer its customers an unmatched quality of service and build on its further strengthened global presence in the current subdued economic climate of the mining industry.

Patrik Nolåker, Group CEO of DSI, commented on the transaction: “Soft commodity prices and supply/demand imbalances represent important challenges to our customers in mining. Through this acquisition, DSI will combine the strengths of two well-established market players, which will allow it to provide its customers a superior offering, both from an efficiency and a product & service portfolio perspective.”

In a separate agreement, Jennmar has agreed to acquire DSI’s Mining business in the United States, which will be integrated into Jennmar’s existing US business. The combined business will be controlled 100% by FCI and operated under the Jennmar brand. DSI’s Tunneling business in the US will remain 100% owned by DSI.

“DSI’s strong presence in Western US hard rock mining will further strengthen Jennmar’s position in this segment of the market. On the other side, its activities in coal mining will complement our existing strong footprint and close some gaps in our offering”, explains Tony Calandra, Executive Vice President of Jennmar.

The Australian transaction is conditional on approval from the antitrust authority in Australia.

The acquired business will form Normet’s MEYCO Dry Spraying product line which will be headed by Tom Kurth, former Managing Director of MEYCO Equipment and Business Development Manager in Atlas Copco MEYCO AG. The manufacturing of the dry spraying products will continue in Switzerland to maintain their high quality. Sales and service of MEYCO dry spraying products will be handled through long term established distributors as well enhanced through Normet’s own worldwide network. The distribution and logistics of spare parts will be managed through Normet’s Global Logistics Center in The Netherlands.

MINEARC SERVICE TEAM MAKES CHAMBER SERVICING EASIER FOR YOUR SITE

Like most industrial machinery, MineARC Refuge Chambers require regular servicing to maintain optimum performance. Due to the nature of a refuge chamber’s life-saving equipment, it is imperative that all operational componentry is maintained at optimal working condition to avoid system failure in an emergency.

Components that receive the most day-to-day wear and tear whilst the refuge operates in stand-by mode require the most attention; including filter elements, door seals, mufflers and vent valves.
