As is known to all, South Africa’s reserves and production of diamonds, gold, platinum-based metals, manganese, and chromium are among the highest in the world. The mining industry is a pillar industry in African countries such as South Africa. Mining ore requires a large number of rock drilling tools, earth and stone excavation, and the basic industries such as road construction, airport construction, port construction, real estate and hydropower stations also require rock tools.
At present, China-Africa relations are increasingly close, mainly reflecting the level of economic cooperation and construction. It can be expected that if the land of Africa develops in the next 20 or 30 years, like the 30 years of reform and opening up in China, the demand for drilling tools will be like the top three in China. Ten years of the same as the spurt of growth, as the exporter of Chinese rock drilling tools, heading into a new era, but also to take practical actions, respond to the call of the new era of the country, the Belt and Road and the development and construction of African plans, advance into Africa, develop large tools In the market, we have been on the road.
