The Association of British Mining Equipment Companies (ABMEC) and the Midland Institute of Mining Engineers (MIMinE) have reported a mutual collaboration and partnership. An official signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will take place at the 11th Annual Safety Seminar - "Safely Managing the Challenge of Change" - on 15 April 2016 at the Holiday Inn Royal Victoria, Sheffield, UK.
ABMEC’s purpose is to gather market intelligence and facilitate growth as a collective, sharing resources and opportunities. Annually, member companies produce mining equipment and services valued in excess of US$1 billion, 90% of which is for the export market.
MIMinE is a professional institute, which aims are to promote the science and practice of engineering in mining and its associated disciplines by fostering, experience, interest and research.
ABMEC member companies demand accredited employees to promote and apply their equipment and services. Many of these are also members of MIMinE. The MoU plans to build on these synergies.
