October-December 2015 | ASIA Miner | 39 Company Profile WEIR Minerals acquisition of Trio Engineered Products will see customers beneft from the ease and convenience of sourcing complete solutions from one supplier. The combination of Trio's product range with Weir Minerals' ex- pertise, materials technology and service ca- pability is expected to deliver a lower total cost of ownership. It also means Weir now offers an expanded range of crushing equipment. "Trio is the perfect ft for Weir," said Weir Min- erals director of strategy, sales and marketing Fred Bradner. "The Trio range of cone, jaw and gyratory crushers, feeders, screens and track plants perfectly complement our existing range of pumps, hydrocyclones, valves, hose, screens, wear resistant linings, mill systems and dewatering equipment. "Trio has always had great application exper- tise which has ensured that the equipment has been well designed and confgured to ensure optimal performance," he said. For existing Trio customers, the acquisition sees Trio products supported and developed by Weir Minerals' extensive global resources and network. "Trio, as part of Weir, continues to deliver reliable technology as in the past," said Weir Minerals global product manager Kurt O'Bryan. All customers have access to a large network of expert service professionals and more than 120 service centres across the globe. A network like this has the ability to respond swiftly to customers' needs. "Being part of Weir adds scale and reach to the Trio offering which enables us to be there for customers whenever they need us," said Trio global service manager Eric Jones. "It pro- vides customers with a level of assurance and support which is hard to fnd from other equip- ment suppliers. "The beneft doesn't stop at additional sup- port. "Everything we do is focused on listening to the customer, making their life easier and solving issues that are critical to them." Eric Jones believes Weir's scale will enable greater investment in the innovative ideas that have made Trio successful, a view shared by Weir Minerals divisional head of services Alas- dair Monk. "Innovation has been in Weir's DNA since its inception more than 140 years ago. Our extensive network means we have a direct feed from customers on exactly what matters to them." "Feedback is channelled through our global product management structure to drive ongo- ing developments in our global design centres. We never stand still. We're always striving for new and better ways to solve customer prob- lems." A sand and aggregate plant with Trio crushers, screens and conveyors prior to commissioning.
