Dura 21 Inc. has signed a distribution agreement with Mansour Mining Technologies Inc., a market leading supplier of mining products throughout Canada. The agreement names Mansour Mining Technologies Inc. as the exclusive distributor of Dura 21 products to the Canadian mining industry.

“As the exclusive distributor of Dura 21 parts, Mansour Mining Technologies Inc. will utilize its extensive mining sales expertise and network to install Dura 21 wear products including pipes, fittings and couplers, into Canada’s leading mining, milling, smelting and refinery operations,” said Jean-Guy Coulombe, president of Mansour Mining Technologies Inc., in a news release.

With 40 years in the underground mining sector, Mansour Mining Technologies Inc. is the largest Canadian manufacturer of comprehensive ground support solutions and smelter hardware. As a leader in innovation and safety, MMTI continues to produce the highest quality products for the global marketplace.

Dura 21 resides in the Northern Centrefor Advanced Technology (NORCAT) in Sudbury.

“At Dura 21, our goal is to craft solutions that increase productivity by decreasing the wear rate of metal parts while reducing the impact on the environment,” said David Dillon, director of product development at Dura 21 Inc. “Our relationship with NORCAT has provided us with the resources necessary to create not only an excellent product, but also a solid plan to grow as a leader in mining innovation. With the addition of our partnership with Mansour Mining Technologies Inc., our customers will receive leading-edge service from an experienced sales team.”

“Dura 21’s proprietary technology solves a complex problem in a multi-billion dollar market,” said Don Duval, CEO of NORCAT, the regional innovation centre where Dura 21 resides. “However, what is more exciting beyond the financial opportunity is that the company’s solution has demonstrated significant environmental benefits by reducing the frequency of part replacement by offering a more durable, cost-competitive product that resonates with customers.”
