Company announces strategic distributor agreement with Wagner Asia Equipment LLC

POWERSCREEN, one of the world’s leading providers of mobile crushing, screening and washing equipment, have appointed their first distributor in Mongolia – Wagner Asia Equipment LLC.

Allen Smith, Powerscreen’s mining business development manager, said: ‘Signing Wagner Asia Equipment will further strengthen the Powerscreen distribution network globally.  Mongolia is a fast-developing country with some of the world’s largest deposits of minerals.

‘Powerscreen’s distribution agreement with Wagner Asia Equipment LLC, coupled with the launch of our large XA750S jaw crusher, XH500 impact crusher, 1500 Maxtrak cone crusher and new flagship Warrior 2400 screen, will establish a strong position in the mining segment and offer customers high productivity and competitive cost of operation, which will benefit the Mongolian market.’

Established in 1996, privately owned and operated Wagner Asia Equipment LLC are the prominent supplier of mining equipment and services within the Mongolian market, serving their customers through multiple business channels and branch offices.

The company has benefitted from huge sales and market share growth as a result of the exploration of the Oyu Tolgoi Copper Mine, established as a joint venture between the Mongolian Government, Rio Tinto Group and Ivanhoe Mines. By 2013, Oyu Tolgoi will produce 3% of the world’s copper and will represent an estimated 30% of Mongolia’s gross domestic product.

Michael Metson, Powerscreen business development manager, said: ‘This appointment is important to our success within the region. Wagner Asia Equipment are specialist mining equipment suppliers familiar with the high levels of customer support necessary for operating equipment in Mongolia.

‘The region experiences temperature swings between –45 and +45 degrees Celsius throughout the year and plays host to some of the most remote geography on Earth. Powerscreen have developed specifications to meet these harsh climates and, in doing so, will help customers maintain productivity and profitability, whatever the application.’
