Eurotire announces extended partnership with Kumtor Gold Mine. This agreement brings critical mechanical and technical support while insuring reduced operating costs through the customer centered Eurocare program.
Miami, Fl., USA – December 1, 2013. Eurotire is proud to announce partnership with Kumtor Gold mine, Bishkek, located in the Tian Shan mountainous region of Krygyzstan. Eurotire has established a Technical Services Department onsite and remains committed to providing 24/7 OTR bias ply and radial tire maintenance and support for the gold mine’s fleet of equipment.
As a result of the recently signed contract with Kumtor, Eurotire technicians will be on hand to assist with reducing tire related operating cost by improving tire and rim maintenance practices while applying Eurocare safety techniques in everyday practices. The technicians will remain on site and serve on a rotating basis.
“Gold producer Kumtor operates in an extremely challenging environment at over 4000 meters above sea level, the second highest gold mining operation in the world. Partnering for even greater success, this agreement demonstrates Eurotire’s global positioning statement of ‘Wherever you mine, we are there with service and support for our tires.’” stated the Eurotire Technical Managers currently assisting on-site. “Eurotire’s Eurocare approach demonstrates we don’t just supply OTR tires; we care for our customers as well as their mining operations and we are here to assist them in achieving their goals.”
The agreement was reached after completing multiple in-depth, full-tire audits. Consequently, Eurotire was able to provide Kumtor with a detailed recommendation that insures fully optimized tire performance and therefore, reduce the amount of time the machines might otherwise stand idle. The on-site audit also served to help clarify the customer’s Key Performance Indicators.
Using the Eurotire maintenance program guidelines set forth will insure the mine will receive the best OTR tire performance from their tire investment. To date, some of the Eurotire 40.00-57 tires have already achieved over 7000 hours of operation.
