Iron Ore Operation in China chooses Osborn

A chinese Iron Ore Operation has chosen Osborn’s SA-designed and manufactured modular plant

While Chinese machines are pouring into Africa, a South African mining equipment manufacturer is quietly making its mark in the People’s Republic. Johannesburg-based Osborn has secured its first ever export order to China, for a modular plant to be utilised in iron ore processing.

“This is a ground-breaking order,” enthuses marketing director Martin Botha. “It is an exciting and significant turnaround to see a South African machine shipped to China, while machines from China are being shipped to mines around Africa. It’s a reflection of the exceptional quality of Osborn’s equipment,” he adds.

Osborn breaks into the civil construction market

Johannesburg-based Osborn has its sights set on improving market penetration with the BX and BXR hydraulic rock breaker range that it sells and markets in South Africa for Canada-based sister company BTI.

Osborn will showcase a BTI Rockbreaker System at bauma Africa.  The company can be found at stand D.10 in the outdoor area at bauma Africa, which takes place at Gallagher Estate, Johannesburg, from September 18 to 21.

Reflecting the growing demand for Osborn’s locally-designed and built modular crushing and screening plants, in South Africa and further afield, the Elandsfontein-based manufacturer has secured orders from several local mines as well as operations in Lesotho, Mozambique, Zambia, Burkina Faso, Guinea and Namibia.
