We’re pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring the Mining Technology Division Conference at "Rooms on Regent's Park" in London on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th October 2017.
“The aims and objectives of this conference are to bring together representatives of the various companies involved in UK Mining, in order to hear about their current operations and to outline their future plans and aspirations” said Mining Technology Division Board Member, Alan Auld.
“It is intended that, by organising this conference, mutually beneficial discussions can be enjoyed between parties within the mining fraternity. The Conference Volume of the papers will hopefully provide the wider public with a greater appreciation of the UK mining industry. We want to emphasize the scale of the UK mining industry in terms of the benefits it can bring, not only in terms of the products, but also in job creation and the rebuilding of communities. It is intended that this Conference will define the current state of the UK mining industry".
Atlantic Pumps will be represented at the conference by our European Business Development Manager, Mark Attride and we will also be exhibiting a table top display stand in the general networking area.
