Over 2020, Element, a manufacturer of mining equipment, received two times more orders in relation to 2019, and delivered to its customers over 1,600 tons of products. In spite of the quarantine regulations in effect across the world, in 2020, Element exceeded its own goals. The manufacturer extended its trade and partner network in the CIS region, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Starting from 2021, Element, the manufacturer of wear and spare parts for mining equipment, starts its collaboration with a new key dealer in Eurasia — Nordfelt. Throughout 2020, Element has increased its order volume by 2 times, has spanned new markets and has taken hold in Eurasian enterprises. In Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Armenia, the Element brand is represented by the company’s key partner — Sever Minerals. In the CIS region, along with Sever Minerals, Nordfelt has become an official representative of Element.
Attitudes and beliefs take decades to form. Try to change the established opinion about how one should do business, or indeed, what solutions one should use for efficient mining. There are a lot of technologies in this industry that are gradually dying out. Nevertheless, companies continue to use them because they are used to them. For several years, Element has been proving to its customers that it’s better to use modern, wear-resistant materials rather than steel to protect machinery and equipment from wear. For this purpose, Element attended the exhibition MiningWorld Russia 2020.
The short service life of wear protection and the frequent emergency stops of equipment are problems familiar to owners of mining equipment. In order to not only increase the operating time of wear-resistant linings but also to reduce maintenance costs, it is important to choose the right lining for the specific operating conditions of the enterprise.

Another important factor is that the company provides comprehensive services throughout the product life cycle."
