Scottish manufacturer signs Mining Eurasia as new official distributor in the Russian Federation
AS the single largest country in the world (17.1 million sq km/6.6 million sq miles), it is perhaps not surprising that Russia has an abundance of coal, metal and minerals. In fact, it is home to 17% of all the world’s mineral deposits, 18% of all coal reserves, and produces more chromium, nickel and palladium than any other nation.
These are some of the key reasons why Russian mining equipment providers Mining Eurasia have gone from strength to strength over the years. This year, their business is set to enter a new chapter, having recently been signed up as Terex Trucks’ official distributor of TA300 and TA400 articulated haulers in the Russian Federation.
‘Russia is a tough market, with many of our customers running 24/7 operations,’ commented Vladimir Startsev, Mining Eurasia’s chief of service. ‘This firstly requires reliable equipment, but it also requires a lot of support from us. The harder you make machines work, the more you’ll need access to spare parts and knowledgeable technicians.
‘We’ve always prided ourselves on the quality of our aftermarket support. This has helped us to build a strong reputation within our sector and strike up partnerships with companies such as Terex Trucks.’
John Rotherford, global key accounts director with Terex Trucks, said: ‘We are delighted to appoint Mining Eurasia as one of our newest dealers. In close collaboration with their team in Russia, we’ll be working together to improve availability as well as return on investment for our customers.’
Mining Eurasia have their headquarters in Moscow. The company also has a repair center, four regional offices and 11 service centers situated across the country.
‘The majority of our employees are dedicated service specialists,’ continued Mr Startsev. ‘We plan to use that expertise to ensure that our customers can get the most out of their Terex Trucks machines.’
