Derrick’s VP of Mining & Industrial Division Concludes South Africa Trip with Eyes Toward the Future

February 16, 2022 – Buffalo, New York.  The Vice President of Derrick Corporation’s Mining & Industrial Division, Sam Palombo, has returned from his week-long visit to South Africa excited about Derrick’s presence in the future of African mining as a whole. Palombo met with the local Derrick team to discuss personnel development, plans for business expansion and short-term growth opportunities, as well as to lay the foundations for a long-term success strategy in the region.

Among the week’s activities, Derrick’s regional sales partners came together to look toward the future during a Representatives conference. The partners shared the newest developments in their territories and discussed the overall forecast for the remainder of 2022. “I am very excited about our mining business in Africa,” said Palombo. He adds, “Our project opportunity pipeline has never been healthier with significant order intake forecasted in 2022. We are well positioned for growth.”

As the world continues to slowly open up again, Derrick is seeing an acceleration in the mining division. At the conclusion of his trip, Palombo got a firsthand look at one of the most recent Derrick SuperStack® installations at the Kropz Phosphate Mine near Cape Town. “The four SuperStacks offer an elegant and cost-optimized solution to increasing the throughput of the milling circuit, and the top size presentation to the flotation circuit,” said Chief Operating Officer of Kropz Phosphate, Michelle Lawrence. The visit to the mine concluded with a meeting with Lawrence to discuss new project opportunities and potential expansions.
