Metso (India) and CDE Asia Limited have agreed on a marketing cooperation to provide comprehensive manufactured sand solutions to customers in India. Metso’s scope covers the crushing and screening technology, and CDE Asia will provide the wet classification equipment required in the manufactured sand production process.
The agreement is in line with Metso’s strategy to strengthen its capabilities by extending its portfolio in cooperation with strong partners around the world, CDE in this case, and offer comprehensive high-quality end-to-end solutions for an important segment such as manufactured sand.
“As a leading provider of equipment and services for the mining and aggregates industries, we always aim to provide the best solutions to our customers that are not only qualitative and efficient in terms of profitability, but also environmentally sustainable. This new marketing cooperation agreement allows customers to acquire the whole process easily, and at the same time forms a good platform for future growth for both Metso and CDE Asia in India,” says Kamal Pahuja, vice president, Mining and Aggregates, Metso India.
“The cooperation agreement with Metso presents new opportunities for both organisations and has been well received by our customers. The combination of Metso’s and CDE Asia’s sustainable technologies produces well-shaped, washed and graded manufactured sand, helping to replace natural sand, which is fast becoming scarce and expensive. The collaboration will benefit the sand manufacturers by providing best-in-quality graded sand and sustainable operations by reusing up to 95% of water used. By utilising normally low-value crusher fines for sand production, we can extend the life of natural resources and also add huge commercial value to our customer’s enterprise,” says Manish Bhartia, MD of CDE Asia.
The cooperation agreement between Metso and CDE Asia is restricted to marketing and development of common offerings for the manufactured sand market by pooling the companies’ expertise and knowledge. Both parties negotiate and sign the terms of contracts independently with the end customers, representing their respective companies only.
