New Horizons opened after Exhibition in Germany
At the end of April specialists of our enterprise returned from Germany. They visited a plant producing hydraulic pumps of “Rexroth Bosch Group” in Elhingen and held negotiations with senior officials of the plant. The parties discussed the supply of “Rexroth Bosch Group” mobile hydraulic for drilling rigs SBSH-160/200 and SBSH-250MNA-32 and agreed on supply dates for 2007-2008. Our enterprise changed to imported hydraulic as the quality of spare parts directly influences the work of our drilling rig. It has become obvious that the consumers of Rudgormash equipment are in need of aftersale maintenance. We are settling this matter. At present time service centers at Rudgormash regional representations are created. A lot of companies have already become familiar with production of equipment together with providing its diagnosis and renovation, which is a rather profitable business.
During the largest European exhibition “bauma+mining 2007” (Munich) meetings were held with representatives of foreign companies manufacturing mining and hydraulic equipment. Among them are German companies Linkoln GmbH, Stromag AG, Power-Hydraulik GmbH, Italian ones Bonfiglioli Riduttori GmbH, HYDROCONTROL S.p.a, Danish company Sauer-Danfoss. According to Mr. Anatoliy Chekmenev, president of CJSC “MMHC-Rudgormash” it is inappropriate to have one supplier only, but two or three ones. But at present day only “Rexroth Bosch Group” manufactures the whole range of equipment we need. After the exhibition Rudgormash specialists developed plans to broaden the range of equipment our enterprise produces. The realization of these plans is expected to begin with manufacturing of horizontal drilling rig which are in demand at the Russian market today.
