There is no defined market for telehandlers in any industry

In light of the plans of infrastructure creation and reforms in mining, what opportunities do you foresee for construction equipment? Opportunities for construction equipment like telehandlers in the mining industry are from the very first day of the mining – from mine formation/construction/ infrastructure maintenance/operational duties and up to mining machinery maintenance. The different attachments make the difference. One single machine (telehandler with some common mining attachments like fork, basket, tyre handler hook, etc.) can replace and reduce the workshop gathering of different machines for different jobs.

Companies all over the world are turning to digital integration to increase efficiency in the mining process.

In recent years, mining companies have adopted a growing range of digital solutions. Many have mechanised their operations, moved from the physical to the digital realm by adding equipment sensors.

Opportunities galore
