Hexagon Mining has renewed its reseller agreement with Trysome in South Africa. President Hélio Samora and Trysome CEO, Eddie Smith, strengthened the long-standing collaboration between the organisations by signing a new agreement at Trysome’s head office in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 21 April 2017.

The partnership ensures the continued availability of Hexagon Mining’s SAFEmine suite of collision avoidance solutions in the South African market. It also means strengthened service and support for Hexagon Mining’s wider portfolio of integrated solutions. Besides collision avoidance and fatigue monitoring, these solutions include proven technologies for surveying, design, fleet management, and production optimisation.

Trysome has represented Hexagon Mining in the sub-Saharan African region since 2008. Today, the flagship Collision Avoidance System (CAS) is running in more than 25 000 mining vehicles in more than 60 mines worldwide. Samora and Smith agreed that renewed collaboration is good news for customers in South Africa.

“Deadlines are looming for many mines to comply with South Africa’s new safety regulations, so this is a timely agreement between our companies," said Samora. “CAS and our new HxGN Mine Vehicle Intervention System (VIS) will help customers protect their people and equipment, as well as meeting those deadlines."

Under new laws, mines will soon be compelled to enhance safety for all Trackless Mobile Machinery, such as haul trucks.

Smith called the companies’ relationship an “ideal partnership”.

“Hexagon’s international experience and Trysome’s 26 years of African market expertise, infrastructure, and footprint are ideally suited for customers facing second-phase legislation,” said Smith. “With over 150 skilled technicians and a team of specialist engineers, Trysome is well geared to meet local demand."
