The Swedish industrial group Sandvik AB said on Monday (18 September) that it has agreed to acquire Chilean company Implementos Mineros SA (Implemin) for an undisclosed sum.

Implemin, based in Santiago, manufactures rotary and reverse circulation drilling consumables for the mineral exploration industry. The company has 90 employees and reported sales of approximately SEK90m in 2005.

"Combined with previous acquisitions this purchase means that we can deliver fully integrated solutions for rotary drilling to customers worldwide," said Lars Josefsson, president of the Sandvik Mining and Construction business area.

"Implemin will also strengthen our offering for surface mineral exploration by providing additional consumables and tools to the product range. The acquisition is also part of our strategy to increase sales in the after-market," Josefsson said.

One Swedish krona (SEK) is worth approximately 0.07 British pounds (GBP).
