For many African countries mineral exploration and production for export is the key to economic stability and growth. The industry provides innumerable jobs and supports thousands of local families.

One of the most important items of capital cost in the mining sector is mobile mining machinery equipment…



…… therefore it is important to invest in efficient and long-lasting vehicles:
