Wenco International Mining Systems Ltd is expanding its sales and support to customers in Northern Europe through a new partnership with Rotator Oy, a leading provider of mining equipment and solutions, based in Finland.
This new agreement extends Wenco’s reach with a capable value-added reseller, paving the way for customers in the region to further leverage Wenco’s open and interoperable approach to mining technology, it said.
Wenco calls itself a leading provider of technology solutions to the global mining industry with a comprehensive suite of digital solutions that boost productivity, decrease operating costs, extend equipment life, enhance safety and give mining companies actionable insights into their operations. Mines realise these benefits through systems for fleet management, machine guidance, safety, and asset health – all grounded in an open systems philosophy that empowers them to freely integrate systems to support their unique business processes, data requirements and reporting needs. it said.
“We’re very positive about the establishment of this partnership with Rotator,” Andrew Pyne, President and CEO of Wenco, said. “They have a very strong presence in the region and an excellent track record of sales and support for Hitachi Construction Machinery, our parent company. We’re looking forward to working closely with Rotator to deliver value through the application of our technologies to their customers in the region.”
Rotator CEO, Janne Wartiovaara, concurs with Pyne: “We are excited to add Wenco to our mining offering and look forward to bring more valuable solutions to our customers.”
In addition to solutions for fleet operations, Rotator and Wenco are introducing fatigue management solutions to the market with Wenco’s SmartCap, the only technology proven to eliminate safety incidents caused by fatigue. SmartCap uses EEG to measure operator fatigue, then notify users of reduced ability to resist sleep, before a fatigue-related incident occurs.
Wenco and Rotator formed this partnership due to their shared focus on delivering customer-centric solutions to the mining industry, Wenco said.
