Last October the fourth edition of the Mauritanian Mining, Oil and Gas Fair, Mauritanides 2016 took place in Nouakchott (Mauritania). A meeting organized by the Ministry of Oil, Energy and Mines of Mauritania, which has become a reference for the multinational companies of the sector in West Africa.

One more issue, the Silgest Group was present with the products and services of the companies: La Herramienta Industrial, specialized in machinery and industrial supply; Pertesa, specializing in industrial personal protection equipment (EPIS); and La Herramienta Express, specializing in industrial hardware supplies with very short lead times.

During the three days of the event, we have had the opportunity to showcase our products and services that cover wide areas of the industrial sector, key players and partners in the mining and oil sector. A great moment of this event was the visit to our stand of the President of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, His Excellency Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, which was attended by our commercial director, Tomás Pérez.

We have also had the opportunity to share experiences with international experts in mining and oil investors and financial institutions responsible for the more than 30 countries attending, among which are the leading companies in the mining and petroleum sector in Mauritania.
