Meet West Virginia at MiningWorld Russia

News
West Virginia is coming to Russia! The West Virginia Department of Commerce is bringing a collective group of companies from the state to take part in MiningWorld Russia - a first in the history of the event.
Meet West Virginia at MiningWorld Russia
With interest in the Russian market running high, the group of exporters has chosen MiningWorld Russia as the entry point, and hopes are strong for a successful trip. We’ll be speaking to several companies about what they’re looking to get out of their mission to Russia - starting with TorsionX, a Charleston-based manufacturer of bolting tools.

“With the support of the West Virginia Department of Commerce, we feel MiningWorld Russia is ideal for TorsionX to gain exposure and potentially find an agent,” the company told us. With a strong distributor network in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and further afield, TorsionX tools are used in mining operations around the world - and Russia is next in the sights.

“We’ve been in the hydraulic torque wrench business for over 20 years.  Many of those years were spent promoting and supporting tools in the mining industry.  Having knowledge in the mining industry and wanting to expand our global footprint into Russia, MiningWorld Russia is a wonderful opportunity for TorsionX.”

Joining TorsionX on the plane to Moscow will be conveyor and bulk handling specialists Richwood, representing Huntington, West Virginia. Supplying mining operations around the world has given Richwood global reach, and the company has chosen MiningWorld Russia to expand their footprint further still.

“We are excited to explore the possibilities for Richwood engineered conveyor components in the Russian mining and bulk material handling markets. Russia is a huge country with significant mining operations of many types, and we believe that these operations can benefit from Richwood’s experience and products just as our other large global clients have.

“We are looking forward to learning more about the Russian mining industry and meeting both end user client and distributor or representative prospects at MiningWorld Russia.”

Want to join Richwood, TorsionX, and hundreds of other leading firms from all over the world? Talk to us today about taking part in MiningWorld Russia 2018.
