Sandvik Mining and Getman Corp. have entered into a global distribution agreement under which Sandvik Mining will be the exclusive global distributor of Getman's products (with exception of a few geographies).
Getman Corp., based in Bangor, Mississippi, US, is a leading supplier of production and production support equipment to the underground mining industry. With a focus on helping miners work safely and efficiently in their everyday roles, Getman has spent over 60 yr bringing high-quality, long-lasting solutions to underground mines.
Getman's product range includes scissor lifts, explosive chargers, logistic support vehicles, lubrication trucks, multi-application pallet handlers and custom design support vehicles along with a complete range of mechanical scalers. The company has also recently launched a shotcrete sprayer to complement its full line of concrete transport vehicles.
Scot Smith, President Sandvik Mining commented: “Getman products expand and strengthen Sandvik's offering in both underground drilling and rock enforcement systems. Sandvik started to distribute Getman products back in 2000 in certain parts of the world and with the signing of the global distribution agreement, Sandvik Mining and Getman will work together to offer the mining customers worldwide with both leading products and aftermarket services.”
