"In recent years, mining companies have been pursuing a sustainable improvement of productivity, in an attempt to build a streamlined cost structure by cutting costs. At the same time, they have begun to make decisions on insourcing and outsourcing based on reliable data to avoid disastrous consequences and reduce costs in operation, maintenance, safety and supply chain management;In addition, they are working on the acceleration of automation by leveraging advanced technologies, contributing to the upgrade of technologies and integration and restructuring of resources at upstream and downstream enterprises in global mining equipment industry. The mining industry needs more flexibility to adapt to unpredictable changes in business environment and achieve long-term growth." said Mr. Li Wenjiang, General Industry Director for Bureau Veritas Greater China Industry and Facilities Division.
