DMC drifter service centre approved by Montabert

Drilling Mining & Construction (DMC) represents internationally renowned manufacturers for underground trackless mining equipment. DMC have distribution agreements with three manufacturers, namely Resemin, Montabert and Putzmeister.

Resemin is a manufacturer of drilling jumbos for tunnel operations, roof support and long hole production drilling. The relationship with Resemin secured the relationship for us with Montabert. Montabert is a manufacturer of hydraulic rock drills and breakers. Resemin assembles the well known Montabert rock drills on their drilling jumbos. Putzmeister manufactures underground robotic shotcrete equipment, and complement this with a range of underground mixers, and a modular low-profile batching plant.

DMC offers a full service to our clients, from the supply of equipment, spares and technical support, including full commissioning of machinery, on-site maintenance and product support as-and-when required. In a continuous effort to improve and deliver full service support, we set up a drifter repair shop to compliment our services. In order to ensure our repair facility meets the required standards, our aftermarket manager, Chris Swarts, discussed and agreed a process of factory accreditation with Montabert in France.

During December 2017, DMC was successfully validated and approved as an official Montabert drifter service centre. Mr. Christian Mathey, field service manager for Montabert Saint Priest, audited and validated DMC’s drifter service centre according to Montabert’s technical criteria. Mr. Mathey acknowledged that this approval for a drifter service centre is a first in the world for Montabert, who has a well established network of approved rock breaker service centres across the world.

“We are very proud and grateful of the accreditation of our service centre, and it is a pivotal moment for DMC, as this increases our service offering to our customers, new and old.” – MD, Niekie Pelser. “Our strength lies in the full service offering we provide”.

The service centre is equipped with all the required Montabert tools and a test bench, and our technicians are certified by Montabert for the repair of specified Montabert drifters.
