FLSmidth has launched a new Service Center for mining customers in the north of Chile. The opening event was attended by a number of key customers and representatives from local authorities. The 8000 m² space focuses on the fast delivery of mining equipment to customers and component maintenance. The facility was inaugurated in Copiapó to meet a high demand for mining service and technical support in the region.

 

The Service Center has a primary emphasis on supplying solutions that extend the asset’s life cycle, such as repairs and rebuilds; equipment and components upgrades; parts and consumables strategic stocking programs; tailored training programs; technical assistance; and customised service packages. The Service Center ensures customers receive the required knowhow to optimise their operations, as well as support when it comes to inspections, process audits and technical issues.

 

Andrés Costa, President FLSmidth South America, said: “This is a significant milestone for the company, since Copiapó represents an important part of our operations in Chile. The huge mining industry potential in the area and our large installed base requires an infrastructure like this so we can work closer with our customers, get to know their challenges and deliver sustainable productivity solutions to their operations.”

 

Carlos Sagredo, Plant Manager North Chile, commented: “This new Service Center will deliver extra availability and reliability to our customers, improving their productivity and uptime, reducing total cost of ownership and extending their equipment lifespan.”

 

Copiapó Service Center joins other FLSmidth service facilities in South America Region, such as São Paulo/Brazil, Arequipa/Peru and Iquique, Antofagasta and Santiago in Chile.
