thyssenkrupp expands service network in Brazil

In April 2018 thyssenkrupp opened a new service center for the mining industry in Parauapebas, Brazil, marking a further step in the expansion of the Industrial Solutions business area’s global network. Covering an area of around 11 500 m², the service center provides a full range of on-site services, maintenance and repair services tailored to the needs of the big mining complexes in Carajás. The region boasts the richest known reserves of iron ore in the world, estimated at some 18 billion tons. Dr. Donald Weir, CEO of the Service business unit of thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions: “As a reliable local partner to our customers worldwide, we want to offer the best possible services. For this we combine global knowledge with local expertise and speed.”

 

Supplementing the established site in Santa Luzia, the new center will initially build a local team of experts specializing in on-site services such as inspections, shutdown management, and emergency assistance in the event of equipment failure. In the future its offering will also include the local manufacture and servicing of wear and spare parts for the mining industry. For this the site on completion will boast modern manufacturing machinery and powerful lifting equipment. The new service center is to be fully ramped up by July 2018. The two centers in Santa Luzia and Carajás provide services for machinery and equipment made by both thyssenkrupp and other manufacturers.
