 “Solar Mining Services has demonstrated its appetite for growth, by offering the market competitive quality products supported by sound experienced technical skills and seasoned managerial leadership.

Motloung is a qualified mining engineer with strong project, business and general management experience. He brings all the necessary experience and leadership attributes required to grow Solar Mining Services with special focus on explosives supply and related services.

He started his career as shift supervisor in 1997 and worked his way up over 20 years as a senior blasting technical officer, project manager, drilling and blasting superintendent, field services engineer, international business manager (Botswana, Malawi & Zimbabwe), product manager (Global) and now takes up the role of business development executive for the SADC region.

Zoltán started his career in the mining sector as a learner official. During his first 15 years he gained experience as a production shift overseer, training manager and chief safety manager. He then ventured into the explosives industry and in his 23 tenure he worked his way through the ranks to explosive engineer, area manager, value adding services manager, business manager (SA), global commercial manager (Explosives), business development manager Africa, business manager (Zambia), business development manager & program designer (SADC) and general key account manager.

He joins Solar Mining Services as the sales executive and will be developing a competent sales force, establishing customer relationships and delivering customer focused outcomes. His strategy is to break the old explosive mould of doing business and focus on the customers’ needs and delivering the perfect result for his customers.

Fit for purpose competitive offerings combined with hands on strategic managerial guidance enables Solar Mining Services to offer peace of mind and cost effective blast solutions.
