"In FLSmidth we have found a partner with the right global sales network to take us to the next level. For years, we have combined profound laboratory process knowledge with automation skills and developed novel and innovative solutions. I am very excited that we now can reach a global audience with our offerings and solutions", Boyne Hohenstein, managing director of IMP.

"We see a strong match between some of our digital initiatives in FLSmidth and IMP's automation solutions that will help miners get better data on their ore and assist in optimising the processing. With this acquisition, our flowsheet of laboratory solutions within mining and minerals processing is complete, and this will be of great value to our customers," says Manfred Schaffer, president of FLSmidth's mining division.

The acquired parts of IMP Automation Group including the joint venture generated revenues in excess of DKK250m (US$37.9m) in 2018.
