Lyoner Str. 18, D-60528 Frankfurt/Main Tel: +49-6966-031262 F ax: +49-6966-032262 www.vdma.org Welcome to the 2014 edition of Best of Germany, highlighting the expertise of companies that supply equipment and services to the exploration, mining and mineral-processing industries worldwide, and are members of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). Expertise in engineering is not easily achieved; it requires dedication and a long-term vision. Many of these compan ies have histories that date back to the 19 th century, and they understand the cyclic nature of commodity markets. The situation in the mining sector has changed in the last 18 months. Prices for most mined commodi- ties have softened and mining companies have tabled ambitious future plans. Even though the level of investment for new projects has declined for the moment, miners will still produce sign ificant amounts of gold, copper, iron ore, nickel, potash, coal, oil sands and more. The difference today is that they are looking to optimize processes to not only improve profit margins, but to also compensate for a lack of skilled labor and a growing regulatory burden. Through innovation and continued investment in research and development, German equipment and service providers are meeting the nee ds of today's miners. This edition of Best of Germany focuses on work being done by VDMA mining branch member companies to increase efficiencies, optimize operating costs, and improve safety underground, on the surface and at the mill. We hope that you find value in this publication, wherever you are in the world. Glückauf!
