Good Luck to our teams at the 2023 Mining Games in Australia.
Have a great time and show them some true grit – we know how hard you’ve all been training.
The first batch of our new range of Extreme Drop Centre button bits are ready to leave our factory for Australia. This new design is a marked improvement over standard Drop Centre bits in flushing, hole straightness and wear properties.
P&V have once again sponsored the Camborne School of Mines Team for the 44th International Mining Games
P&V have sponsored the Camborne School of Mines Team for the 44th International Mining Games hosted by the Missouri S&T in Missouri, USA.
The games will take place over two days, with the Men’s Survey on 25th March, with the main competition events taking place on Saturday 26th March 2022.
Since November 2021, the Men’s team have been training at King Edward Mine every Wednesday.
Ben Mantell-Jolly will be the Team Captain, the only competitor within the men’s team who competed at the last mining games. The team will consist of all years ranging from 1st year to 4th year (Masters). – we wish them well – look out for further updates.
On November 1st Tom Fieldsend took on the role of Product Development Engineer.
Just over three years ago Steve Harper stepped up to become the Head of Engineering and took along with him the role of Product Manager.
During this time Steve has done both roles tirelessly and to good effect but it has always been recognised that the company needed to develop a greater field test/product development presence.
Tom will increasingly spend more time on visits with Steve, reviewing and developing our own products in the work environment whilst continuing to help their development here in the factory.
In time it is hoped that Tom will then be able to undertake visits with the Sales people and on his own giving us greater coverage of our markets around the World.
