New appointment at Weir Minerals
Company boosts crushers and screens offering with new product manager for Europe
WEIR Minerals have strengthened their crushing and screening expertise in Europe with the appointment of Sebastian Rakoczy as their new product manager for comminution equipment.
Joining the company’s growing dedicated comminution team, he will be responsible for supporting the expansion of the company’s presence across Europe, North Africa and Kazakhstan.
Mr Rakoczy joins Weir Minerals from Sandvik and brings eight years of engineering and sales experience to the role.
The appointment follows Weir’s acquisition in 2014 of crushing and separation equipment manufacturer Trio Engineered Products, which significantly extended the company’s product portfolio in crushing, grinding and screening.
Mr Rakoczy (pictured) said: ‘This is an exciting time for Weir Minerals, having transformed in recent years into a full-spectrum solutions provider for the mining and quarrying industries, not only manufacturing a comprehensive range of minerals processing equipment, but also offering a robust aftermarket support network.
‘Warman pumps are the reference point for quality for many minerals processing applications, and our ambition is to continue building the same reputation right across the product range.
‘Modern minerals production places more emphasis on efficiency than it did in the past and we have the quality of products, the on-site engineering experience and the strength of service support network to help our customers achieve the equipment performance they need to maximize output.
‘Weir Minerals have developed an enviable portfolio of clients, including many of the biggest names in mining and aggregates, and I’m looking forward to helping to broaden these existing partnerships, as well as attracting new customers to discover what we have to offer.’
Tony G. Locke, managing director of Weir Minerals Europe, added: ‘Sebastian has a wealth of experience, and we’re confident he will help ensure that we continue to deliver world-class products and service to our customers, helping them get market-leading return on their equipment investment.’
