The Institute of Quarrying of South Africa conference was held at the Elangeni Hotel from the 19th to 20th of April 2018.

The conference is attended by all members of the institute which includes Quarry Operators and ancillary services (e.g. Drilling and blasting)

In addition to the conference, an indoor exhibition is held to enable service providers to the Quarrying Industry an opportunity to market their products and services to key stakeholders in the industry.

The delegates to the conference visited the exhibition during the various breaks and interacted with the suppliers in the exhibition hall.

HPE Africa took the opportunity to re-introduce themselves as the dealer for McCloskey International after a 4 year hiatus when the product range was marketed by another dealer.

During the two days of the conference, the HPE Africa staff on the stand; Alex Ackron, Managing Director and Warren Best, Sales Executive for KZN, met many of the major players in the quarrying industry and took the opportunity to introduce the McCloskey product range to them – on the whole, the product range was met positively and with interest.

An awards dinner was held on the Thursday evening and a number of relationships with customers were strengthened.

HPE Africa regards our attendance of the conference as a success and looks forward to both promoting and supplying the McCloskey range within the Quarrying Industry going forward
