Fabian Stuart named as new head of mineral processing and mining for Southern Africa
HAVER & Boecker Niagara, providers of screening, pelletizing, and mineral processing plants and systems for the mining, aggregate, and industrial mineral industries, have announced the appointment of Fabian Stuart as the head of mineral processing and mining for the company’s Southern Africa operation. Mr Stuart will help to grow Haver & Boecker Niagara’s presence in the majority of the African continent by increasing the productivity of operations.
‘My goal is to build relationships with clients and show them how Haver & Boecker Niagara can help maintain and optimize their equipment, said Mr Stuart. ‘While providing our clients with top-tier solutions for their processing needs is a priority, we also want to demonstrate how we can be a collaborative partner and consultant first with our PROcheck service program.’
Mr Stuart brings more than 30 years’ industry experience to his position, having started his career as an electrical apprentice for PPC Cement before working his way into management. Next, he spent 13 years with BME Group, a partner with Haver & Boecker Niagara, first as a client liaison and then as a leader in the parts and service department. Following this role, Mr Stuart served 10 years as the head of operations for Haver & Boecker Niagara’s Southern Africa team, bringing his total years of experience in the machinery division to 23.
‘This new role is a natural extension of Fabian’s decade-long leadership of the Southern Africa team and extensive managerial experience,’ said Clayton Carvalho, managing director of Haver & Boecker Niagara’s Brazil operation. ‘Serving as a client liaison as well as a managerial executive for Haver & Boecker Niagara makes him well equipped to understand customer needs from their perspective and offer a tailored approach to potential solutions.’
