TORONTO, March 1, 2012 /CNW/ - Dumas Contracting Ltd. ("Dumas Contracting") and Tercon Investments Ltd. ("Tercon") have combined to create a new company providing a diverse and integrated suite of specialized services to the international mining and energy sectors. The newly enlarged company will operate under the globally-recognized Dumas name.
This complementary combination provides clients immediate access to a broad range of services, covering the complete project lifecycle, from concept to completion, including specialty engineering, site development and infrastructure, construction and production mining.
"By integrating the companies, we provide our clients the opportunity to work with a recognized, safe and trusted partner to meet all of their project needs, small or large scale, in Canada and abroad," said Mr. Burger Greeff, Chief Executive Officer of the newly expanded Dumas. "We have immediately opened up new opportunities for growth across our established locations network and strategic alliances in North, Central and South America, West Africa and Asia, thereby increasing the range of services available to our clients."
"The combination makes Dumas one of the few contractors able to provide both underground and surface mining services," added Milan Soucek, President of Tercon. "Pooling the resources of Dumas and Tercon brings together two safety-focused cultures with highly skilled and experienced workforces, capable of pro-actively anticipating client needs during projects of any size or complexity."
Additionally, with the combination, Dumas now has an extensive, high-quality production equipment fleet. The fleet includes an extensive array of production trucks and equipment, as well as a wide range of mobile, shaft and stationary equipment suitable for any underground or surface project. The company has a dedicated maintenance facility to ensure the continued quality and reliability of the fleet and is ready to mobilize equipment to international and domestic projects at short notice.
With a strong growth outlook, Dumas is already capitalizing on new opportunities identified within the existing client base of the two companies, as well as with new mining and energy clients seeking a service provider with a reputation for achievement, safety and innovation.
Dumas is a leading international mining and energy services company, and one of few select companies able to provide both underground and surface mining services.
