CDE forges Brazilian alliance with Sandvik
By Lindsay Gale24 October 2012
Washing plant provider CDE Global has formed an alliance with Sandvik Construction Brasil that will see the latter promoting CDE's equipment through its sales network throughout the country. This announcement follows on from the formation of CDE do Brasil Ltda in May 2012.
Speaking of the new alliance, Stefan Hunger of CDE do Brasil said: "This new alliance provides CDE do Brasil with an opportunity to quickly identify opportunities that exist for the upgrading of the existing minerals washing equipment infrastructure. Our aim is to establish CDE as the premier choice for mineral washing plant in Brazil."
He went on: ""Sandvik are recognised throughout the world as a brand associated with high quality and performance in the crushing and screening arena. Adding our washing equipment to their portfolio completes the circle and allows us both the opportunity to further develop market share in Brazil."
Commenting on the alliance during a recent visit to a CDE open week at a Sheehan group site where CDE had installed a construction and demolition waste recycling plant, Tiago Carvalho of Sandvik Construction Brasil said: "The visit to England allowed us to demonstrate to the visiting companies the quality of the CDE equipment and its ability to handle even the most difficult materials. I am sure that over the coming months and years we will identify many opportunities in Brazil to introduce CDE equipment." The Sandvik personnel were joined on the visit by a group of potential end users from Brazil that had been identified by both parties over recent months.
