SMT Scharf Canada, a subsidiary of the SMT Scharf Group, has entered an exclusive distribution partnership with Parts Service Supply in Mexico.
Scharf views the mining industry in Mexico as an excellent fit for the group’s rubber-tyred product line of machines due to the region’s mining methods, and the remote nature of mines. It has a narrow-vein equipment line that has become a popular choice among Scharf’s current Mexican customers and the option of customisation is frequently taken up by those seeking machines specifically tailored to their mining operations for maximum efficiency, the company said.
This is where Parts Service Supply can help represent the full product line in Mexico in sales, parts support and service.
Parts Service Supply, in conjunction with its two sister companies Cominsa and Prossessa, have been operating for more than 50 years and have developed a strong reputation for being a major player in the Mexican mining supply industry, according to Scharf.
“As a family business, we take great pride in our partners and SMT Scharf is the perfect fit for us to marry our comprehensive mine site support with the highest quality in underground mining equipment,” Oscar De Los Santos, Vice President of Parts Service Supply, said. “With our technical support group and extensive infrastructure throughout Mexico, it is our mission to provide all customers with an unmatched speed to market supply chain and service response that will result in higher utilisation rates of their underground production equipment.
“We cannot express how excited we are to get this new partnership under way as SMT Scharf is a global brand known for their commitment to quality equipment with an eye towards the future with their development of new battery technologies.”
The SMT Scharf Group plans to continue to grow its diesel equipment line with all Latin American customers, while simultaneously focusing on the development of new battery-electric technology that is emerging in 2021, it said.
Shannen Edwards, Director of Corporate Development, said: “We at SMT Scharf Canada pledge to continue building quality machines that are simple for our customers to service and operate, all while remaining at a competitive price point.
“In our partnership with Parts Service Supply, we believe we have chosen the right group to help us achieve these goals and to solidify our strong commitment to the Mexican mining industry. Parts Service Supply prides themselves in being one of Mexico’s top mining supply companies and is founded on the principles of safety, ethical business practices, quick support, and premium technical knowledge.
“Parts Service Supply is closely aligned with our vision of providing our customers with the highest level of support possible; it truly was the perfect match.”
