FLSmidth South Africa (Pty) Ltd has successfully concluded the restructuring of the operations of its Meshcape® Screen Media Business Division. The company took a decision early in 2018 to retain the manufacture of core screen product lines, including polyurethane and wedgewire as well as its proven ceramic wear solutions, and to divest from the manufacture of woven wire screens, perforated plate and wire conveyor belts.

FLSmidth concludes deal with Crusher Support Services

Concluding the agreement signed between FLSmidth and Crushers Support Services are (from left) Hentie Pietersen, acting CFO at FLSmidth SSA; Buks Roodt, director mining site sales at FLSmidth SSA; Alistair Calver, project manager at FLSmidth SSA; Reinier Fourie, managing director CSS Engineering; Alec MacKie, business development CSS Engineering; Brian Day, group executive VP at FLSmidth and Deon de Kock, regional president FLSmidth SSA and Middle East.

The retained product lines are being relocated to FLSmidth’s Delmas Supercenter which is being expanded as part of its Phase II development programme. These manufacturing lines will be fully commissioned and operational during January and February 2019.

The Delmas Phase II facility is a R75-million expansion comprising the construction of a 5 360 m² workshop to accommodate a new heavy machining facility as well as the relocated and optimised manufacturing lines for the retained products from the Meshcape® Screen Media facility. A total of 31 skilled personnel will relocate from Edenvale to the Delmas II facility. The Delmas II expansion will also create additional new employment opportunities for people from the greater Victor Khanye Local Municipality.

The sale of the divested product lines has been successfully concluded with Crushers Support Services (Pty) Ltd (CSS). CSS is active in the mining and quarrying business sectors, providing service and support of crushing and screening solutions. The sale preserves the full manufacturing capacity for the divested product lines in the original Meshcape Edenvale facility and, in so doing, 79 jobs were preserved. A Preferred Supplier Agreement has also been concluded between FLSmidth and CSS ensuring that all existing customers will continue to receive high levels of support and to focus on future growth synergies.
