The VIST group has been appointed as the official distribution and support partner in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This area includes countries such as Russia, Kazakhstan, the Ukraine, Belarus, Poland and the surrounding countries.

The VIST Group is a leader in the deployment of mine fleet management systems and control systems in Russia and the rest of the CIS.

"With offices that provide various services including technical support across Russia, the Ukraine, Mongolia and Kazakhstan, we feel that the VIST group suits Reutech Mining’s specific and highly demanding requirements of a regional partner perfectly", says Cala van der Westhuizen, Marketing and Sales Manager of Reutech Mining.

"After extensive research and planning, Reutech Mining and the VIST Group both agreed on the mutually beneficial partnership. We are very happy to announce this to our friends and colleagues and would like to officially welcome the VIST Group into our global family," Cala says.

Mr. Mikhael Makeev, Business Manager at the VIST Group said, "We are very excited to be joining Reutech Mining in their expansion into our part of the world and look forward to future successes achieved by our partnership. Even though this market can be quite different to that which is encountered in other parts of the world, we, as VIST Group, are more than confident that with our assistance the business will prosper and grow in Russia and the rest of the CIS."

He also stated that, "VIST Group has their own offices and representatives in the majority of mining regions in Russia as well as the rest of the CIS and are more than capable to support the deployment of the MSR radars. They will also be managing all necessary licensing and provide excellent technical maintenance and support through their highly experienced engineers, who will also be trained on the MSR project by Reutech Mining."
