Marius Kloppers re-joined the mining industry as he is appointed to the board of FLSmidth.
It came on the back of the company’s annual general meeting earlier this week.
“At FLSmidth, Kloppers will lend his decade-long experience in the global mining industry to the Danish supply and services expert which serves the minerals and cement industries globally,” the company said in an official statement.
Kloppers used his new appointment as an opportunity to speak about the challenges facing the mining industry, and the role his new company will play in alleviating these issues.
“To achieve much-needed efficiency gains, the mining industry will heavily increase its spending on service agreements and equipment with performance guarantees. This gives FLSmidth a unique opportunity to aid global mining companies in adjusting to the ‘new normal’ in the global mining market,” Kloppers said.
