Aceros Chile S.A. recently appointed Australia’s Crushing & Mining Equipment (CME) as its sole distributor for steel Grinding Mill Liners (GML) throughout Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Africa. The perpetual agreement provides CME with a complete range of steel mill liners for SAG and ball mills from a world leading foundry with a strong history of quality. It also provides CME with an additional source of quality manganese wear products for cone, gyratory and jaw crushers.

“Aceros has built a reputation in South America as a quality supplier of GML, supplying some of the world’s largest mining companies throughout the southern continent,” said Jeff Smith, CEO, CME. “Not only do they provide a very competitive product, but they also have some of the best quality control processes I have seen and have consistently demonstrated the kind of innovation that CME looks for in all of its partners. While we remain pragmatic regarding our entry into Australia’s GML market we believe that we can provide a credible alternative to the duopoly that currently exists and we look forward to becoming a major supplier over the coming years.”

All products produced by Aceros undergo strict quality control and inspection via multi-level validation and testing procedures throughout the design and manufacturing process. In addition to this, CME has implemented independent controls after delivery to provide total confidence that all products supplied will be suitable for the specified site requirements.
