VDMA 64 VDMA MINING SUPPLEMENT • 2017 Last year was a big year for thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions. They announced several new pieces of equipment and services at bauma and MINExpo. Then the company embarked on a reorgani- zation plan where its business units were restructured and focused more strongly on sectors and customer groups. All of these moves were not only made to reduce costs and improve service, but to also consider step changes as to how projects are engineered and man- aged. "We now have a dedicated organization for project management and engineering and other central services regarding project execu- tion such as commercial project management, logistics and procure- ment," said Thomas Jabs, executive vice president, mining systems for thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions. "All of that is now combined into one entity, which is referred to as a Network of Excellence. The idea was to strengthen the focus of the company's core plant engineering business by combining all these project execution disciplines into one entity, making us more competitive and flexible in terms of resource utilization." thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has eight business units and one of those is Mining Technologies. Service is another business unit. "Service will be a cornerstone of the new organization," Jabs said. "The target is to offer our clients technical solutions as well as Material Handling: Moving Minerals Engineering Modern Crushing and Material Handling Installations Designing crushing and conveying installations, such as this truck dump, which handles two haul trucks, thyssenkrupp's semi-mobile installations avoid the concrete work to a great extent and allow for pre-assembly of large modules, reducing the initial cost.
