On December 31st 2009, DSI’s USA Mining and Tunneling business units: DSI Ground Support Inc., Met-tech Inc., Fasloc Inc. and American Commercial Inc., merged into the newly founded DSI company in the USA titled DSI Underground Systems Inc..
This represents a further strategic step towards concentrating DSI’s business activities and strengthening its consistent market presence. The new operative unit will create efficient and lean structures, thus further strengthening DSI’s position in the North American Underground market.
Regional Chief Executive Officer, Alan Henderson, states: “The new legal entity structure considerably strengthens DSI’s market presence in the USA by fully utilizing operational and commercial synergies of the previous 4 companies. DSI is positioning itself for further growth in the United States coal, hard rock mining and tunneling sectors. DSI now has 6 manufacturing facilities in the USA with plans for further expansion.”
