partnershipsRAMJACK is proud to announce they have reached an agreement with Mine Design Technologies (MDT), making RAMJACK their exclusive distribution partner in Sub-Saharan Africa.

MDT specializes in the development and deployment of geotechnical applications that capture and monitor critical rock mechanics data; including ground movement and stability. Their patented SMART technologies – including their flagship product, the SMART MPBX – were designed specifically to function in the most challenging mining environments and have been deployed the world over.

“RAMJACK is excited to represent MDT in Sub-Saharan Africa,” said Mike Jackson, Co-founder of RAMJACK. “We are already in discussions with several mines in the region and the MDT SMART technology is being very well received.”

The agreement follows closely, and builds upon, RAMJACK’s existing distribution agreement with Newtrax Technologies, Inc. Jackson anticipates that many African deployments will take advantage of both these complementary technologies.

“We look forward to our partnership with RAMJACK and helping African mines tackle the geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring challenges associated with their unique mining environments,” said Peter Lausch, Chief Operating Officer of Mine Design Technologies.
