Last November, the 4th Senegal Mining International Exhibition 2016 was held in Dakar, capital of Senegal. Grupo Silgest has attended this fair for the first time as an exhibitor of its three companies: La Herramienta Industrial, specialized in machinery and industrial supply; Pertesa, specialized in industrial supply of personal protective equipment (EPIS); and La Herramienta Express, specialized in industrial hardware supplies with very short delivery times. It has been a very satisfying meeting. In this fair, all the mining-related companies in the region are concentrated, both in the mining phase, as well as in the exploration and establishment process.
The Ministry of Mines of Senegal , with its minister Aly N’Gouille Ndiaye in front, is making a very strong commitment to the development of the mining sector, due to the large amount of resources of the country as well as the great economic development and the great amount of employment that is generated in the regions where the mines are installed, and the auxiliary companies. Our representative at this fair, Jorge Pérez, had the opportunity to have an interesting chat directly with him.

The presence of the Grupo Silgest has generated great interest since we offer ourselves as a global supplier for any need that a mine may have, due to the great diversity of products offered by our three specialist companies. La Herramienta Industrial, leading supplier of industrial machinery; Pertesa, in everything related to Personal Protective Equipment (EPIS) for the worker; and La Herramienta Express, company specialized in hardware and industrial supply. Our presence in this fair has been the first step for our entry and growth in ECOWAS countries (Economic Community of West African States).
