FLSmidth has been recognised as the market-leader in flotation cells at a special award ceremony in Chile. The top placement in the 2019 Mining Suppliers Ranking for flotation was awarded to FLSmidth by independent consultant Phibrand, during an event organised by Chilean Mining Suppliers Association (APRIMIN).
The award was based on a Phibrand survey of more than 270 mining professionals, who evaluated aspects such as equipment or service quality, technical and economic flexibility, and reputation.
Andrés Costa, President of FLSmidth South America, said: “We are very proud about this recognition because this is given by our customers. This is a real sign that we are meeting their expectations in the right way.”
Cristian Mansilla, Director of Phibrand, explained: “This ranking is based on a survey – via phone and e-mail – that is answered by mining company professionals. The surveys are directed different levels in the company from senior management, operational management and other areas.”
FLSmidth created its flotation process line from the considerable experience and deep process knowledge of two world leaders, DorrOliver EIMCO® and WEMCO®, to produce the most advanced technology for mining flotation.
The leading flotation range covers single equipment to the entire flotation offering, including all auxiliary equipment, such as tanks, pumps, piping, blowers and similar.
In addition to the accolade in flotation, FLSmidth also was recognised as one of the top suppliers in the Pumps category.
