Cement, mining and minerals


Industry Overview

As society continues to become more urban we rely on cement, metals and minerals more than ever before. Our modern homes and offices, roads, power systems etc. would not exist without steel, copper, concrete and many other mined materials. Even the move towards cleaner energy sources and more efficient electric vehicles will demand more metals to be possible.

With deep domain expertise across all heavy, energy intensive industries, we offer the broadest portfolio of products and solutions that can be serviced locally, anywhere in the world. Our products and digital solutions are designed for harsh environments building reliability, improving safety, predicting and preventing disruption to your operation, and minimizing operational downtime. These values are cornerstones for our cement and mining customers and our solutions help improve the bottom line.
