Thyssen Mining is also a leading innovator in introducing new technology and methods to the mining industry. Our Company introduced freezing technology in North America and has used it to sink over a dozen shafts in the Canadian potash industry. Over the years, we have been involved in the introduction of roadheaders, electric-hydraulic shaft jumbos, the V-mole shaft borer, and raise boring to the North American mining industry. Today we continue to be on the forefront of mining technology and work closely with equipment suppliers and clients to make mining safer and more cost effective in an increasingly competitive industry.
Thyssen Mining has specific goals and objectives. We will have the lowest significant incident frequency in the industry (total combined lost time, medical aid, and first aid injuries per 200,000 man-hours worked). We will be the most productive, cost efficient, and well-managed contractor in the industry. We will be the most profitable, financially sound mining contractor in the industry and return dividends to our shareholders.
To achieve the above, our focus is on “Safety, Quality, and Cost”. Every employee understands these three words, and they are part of our management culture. Everyone works to continuously improve the company in all areas, to make us the most attractive mining contractor in the industry for our clients.
