Famur sees a growing demand for mining machinery in the country, and is expanding its exports

Famur observes the growing activity of domestic coal producers in the field of deposit preparation. On foreign markets, in the mining machinery segment, the company is focusing on diversification after the cessation of offers on the Russian market, announced President Mirosław Bendzera.

“You can see that Polish coal producers are taking steps to activate works related to the launch of new mining deposits. This can be seen, for example, in the number of new contracts for the rental or lease of machines used in the preparatory process, ”Bendzera said at an online press conference.

Throughout 2021, Famur signed 30 agreements for the rental and lease of such machines, while by mid-July 2022, over 39 such agreements were concluded.

"We estimate that by the end of this year, the number of these contracts for roadheaders alone may exceed 50. It is similar in the case of longwall shearers, for which the number of tenders is also growing" - added the president.

The company is also active in the Chinese and Indonesian markets, and is in talks in Australia.

“In addition to traditional coal directions, we have been successful in implementing our technical solutions also for other raw material sectors. We are after the first implementation of a mining complex based on a roadheader for the exploitation of gypsum deposits in Italy. We are conducting similar talks with a plaster producer in France. We also have a lot of inquiries from producers of potassium salts ”- summed up the president.

Famur reported that its total order book in the mining machinery segment - understood as supplies of machinery and equipment and leases in accordance with the terms of the contracts - as at June 30, 2022 increased to approx. PLN 736 million compared to approx. PLN 592 million at the end of the first quarter of this year. .

Famur is a manufacturer of machines used in mining, and since May 2021 it has been implementing a strategy of transformation towards a holding investing in a green transformation and other prospective industrial sectors. The company has been listed on the WSE since 2006. Its consolidated sales revenues reached PLN 1,050 million in 2021.
