FLSmidth Inaugurates New Supercenter in Chile

20 March 2013 - The Royal Danish Highnesses Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary inaugurated FLSmidth’s new Supercenter in Antofagasta, Chile on Thursday 14 March. FLSmidth has been active in Chile for more than 100 years and today the company has 800 employees on different locations in the country.

The Antofagasta Supercenter will be fully completed in June 2013 with expanded offerings for local rebuild, service and parts support. The Supercenter in Antofagasta is the second in Chile, and the fourth of seven planned all-in-one service centres – called Supercenters. The centres will be built in regions where FLSmidth has significant mining and cement operations. 

The Supercenters allow for proximity to customers for timely parts delivery and support, strategic stock, rebuild and repair capabilities, a training room for customers’ staff to learn to use equipment optimally among other uses, small-scale laboratory services and increased employment opportunities in the community. 

When completed, the seven planned Supercenters will be in six countries: Tucson, USA; Perth, Australia; Arequipa, Peru; Antofagasta and Santiago, Chile; Khanbogd, Mongolia; and Delmas, South Africa.
