FLSmith has purchased KnowledgeScape, a leader in digital optimization solutions for the mineral processing industry. The addition to FLSmidth’s digital ENABLR portfolio will deliver an expanded range of benefits to customers, from increased automation to improved reliability and enhanced productivity, according to FLSmidth. The KnowledgeScape portfolio has documented capabilities in increasing the total output of a processing plant by 4%-10%. At the same time, its solutions reduce power, water and reagent consumption, which contribute significantly to the goals of FLSmidth’s MissionZero sustainability strategy.

“With this acquisition, FLSmidth reinforces a strong track record of mergers and acquisitions and integration, with special emphasis on the retention of local talent,” FLSmidth CDO Mikko Tepponen said. “This acquisition will further solidify FLSmidth as a leading supplier of digital optimization to the minerals processing industry.”

“We are excited to join FLSmidth and become a part of its amazing team of mining solutions experts,” KnowledgeScape CEO Dustin Collins said. “We are looking forward to providing FLSmidth customers with ever-improving optimization technologies that save costs, time and drive sustainability.”
