FLSmidth at a glance
Global economic development and the green transition increase the demand for minerals and cement. Reducing the environmental impact from the production of these materials is an imperative. As a sustainability partner for our customers, we have a tremendous responsibility to drive progress.
Mining for a sustainable world
FLSmidth is a leading full-flowsheet technology supplier for copper, gold, nickel, zinc and lithium mining. Our products range from crushing, screening, conveying, separation, pumps and tailing to digital solutions for process performance. Our equipment is designed to provide up to decades of productive capacity.
Building on strong partnerships, we are focused on full lifecycle solutions that deliver on our sustainability commitments and improve our customers’ financial performance.
Driving the green transition in the cement industry
The development in urban infrastructure is forcing the industry to transform the way cement is produced. Providing the technology for green cement, produced with a minimum of emissions, is the most important task for our cement business. As a leading sustainability partner for our cement customers, we are already deploying solutions that deliver significant emissions reductions, while investing in research and development to create the next phase of innovations in the cement flowsheet.
FLSmidth operates primarily in the mining and cement industries and we pursue distinct, separate approaches to these two business areas. To ensure we deliver maximum value, we apply our expert know-how, innovative technology and tailored services to help our customers address their operational challenges.
We are also active in other industries with similar characteristics to cement and mining, where our premium technology and service offerings help customers achieve higher output, while reducing costs and the environmental footprint.
More than 140 years of extraordinary discoveries
FLSmidth has a long, proud history dating back to 1882. Our founders pioneered innovative solutions that enabled customers to produce more with less and changed the rules for raw materials processing, shaping the world as we know it today. Continuing this heritage, we want to help our customers in mining and cement move towards zero emissions by 2030. And to succeed, our focus is clear: Using in-depth process expertise, digital solutions, innovative technology and strong partnerships, we are committed to building a sustainable future.
Alongside internal development and growth, FLSmidth has evolved purposefully through the strategic acquisition of companies in the mining and cement arenas. The largest of these was completed in 2022, with the acquisition of thyssenkrupp’s mining business. This has solidified FLSmidth’s position as a leading technology and services provider for our customers in the global mining industry.
