There are many motives for acquisitions. One of FLSmidth’s motives is providing the market’s most advanced and comprehensive products and services to its customers. This will extend FLSmidth’s status as a world-wide supplier of systems and services in the five minerals-focused industries: coal, iron ore, fertilizer, copper and gold. The goal is to become full flowsheet providers within the core products of each mineral. The series of nine acquisitions, which FLSmidth has executed within Minerals since March 2012, represents a considerable step in this direction and strongly complements FLSmidth’s organic growth.
