Multotec announced it selected Istanbul-based Turbo Ltd. as its new agent in Turkey. Turbo landed the role because of its infrastructure and technical expertise, Multotec reported.

Leadership at Multotec said it has a renewed focus on the region and intends to expand its footprint there significantly. “Over the years, Multotec equipment has been installed in the chrome, gold and coal sectors, and through the appointment of Turbo we will be able to extend our reach and include a larger range of proven Multotec solutions to the mining and minerals processing industry in Turkey,” Bart Malan, Multotec’s international business development manager for Eurasia, said.

While Multotec historically marketed cyclones and spiral concentrators in Turkey, the future will see it market a growing range of equipment, including samplers, screening systems, flotation components, pumps and magnetic separators, the company reported.

Multotec plans to work with Turbo to set up a mineral testing laboratory in Turkey, Malan said.

Turbo focuses on high-quality aftersales service, and its Istanbul workshop is certified by the Turkish Standards Institute, Multotec reported.
