HANZA and Epiroc sign global manufacturing agreement
Stockholm, Sweden – HANZA Holding AB has signed a global manufacturing agreement with Epiroc regarding deliveries of assembled mechanics and subsystems to the company's mining equipment, HANZA said in a news release.
"Epiroc has launched an extensive sustainability program to help reduce global environmental impact, HANZA's business model with manufacturing clusters that can produce complete systems reduces transportation and increases resource utilization, helping us in that work," said Martin Karlsson, global strategic sourcing manager at Epiroc.
”HANZA has a very broad offer, which means we can reduce the number of suppliers and instead increase the added value. This provides economies of scale for us as our supplier gets substantial business with a larger overall commitment.”
Epiroc works with the mining, infrastructure and natural resources industries.
The new international manufacturing agreement spans more than one year and includes assembled mechanics and subsystems for Epiroc's various assembly sites. It starts immediately, with manufacturing to be performed in several of HANZA's sites around the world.
"Epiroc is a very interesting customer for us, as our proximity can be combined with competitive manufacturing in different technologies," says Thomas Lindström, senior vice-president and head of business solutions at HANZA. ”Of course, it is also inspiring to be a part of the implementation of their future strategy.”
