Engineering firm to take advantage of opportunities at Mining Indaba

27th January 2012 By: Sinette Goosen

International engineering and project management company Amec is attending the eighteenth annual Investing in African Mining Indaba, in Cape Town, from February 6 to 9. The four-day event is the ideal oppor- tunity to take advantage of market exposure and networking opportunities.

“The Mining Indaba is the second-largest premium mining exhibition and conference in the world and nearly every company that is working on mining projects in Africa will be there,” says Amec business development executive for Africa Liam Cafferty.

“This event is a good networking opportunity and, in addition to building brand awareness, we will also be showcasing our expertise, capabilities and service offerings for the mining and minerals industry.”

“We attend the Mining Indaba every year and I will certainly be surprised if fewer than 5 700 people attend this year,” he comments.

Relaunch

Amec Minproc will also take this opportunity to relaunch its brand, revealing its full transition into Amec, including the showcase of its full global capabilities during a private cock-tail party at the Mining Indaba.

The name change signifies the completed integration into Amec and the extensive global service offering the company has, including the design, procurement and construction of mineral resources projects globally.

The Johannesburg office has been operating as Amec Minproc since 2009, when its parent company, Amec, acquired ASX-listed Australian engineering and project development company, GRD Minproc, an engineering and project delivery business specialising in the design, procurement and construction of mineral projects, with primary operations in Australia, Africa and South America.

The company will also be hosting an array of networking functions at the Mining Indaba, such as a golf day, on the first day, and the sponsored cocktail session for invited guests.
