Accutrak, a North-West technology company in South Africa that specializes in tracking and weighing solutions for conventional and trackless mines in the underground and surface mining environments is looking forward to expanding its customer base during the Trade and Investment Mission to Mozambique this month.

Accutrak is one of the companies which received financial support from the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) to participate in the mission. These companies are from the electrical and renewable energy, architects and engineering services, built environment, telecommunications, mining services, rail and ports, steel and tubing and gas sectors. The mission will include a trade and investment seminar, targeted business-to-business meetings and sector-specific site visits.

The Chief Executive Officer of Accutrak, Mr. Pierre Swart says he is excited and thinks there are a lot of opportunities in Mozambique to explore. According to him, the mission offers his business in Mozambique and the opportunity to present the company to them.

“The only way productivity can be rectified in mines is to invest in the technology. I’m therefore hopeful that the Mozambican mines will invest in our technology, “says Swart.

Accutrak is a technology company that has four shareholders and employs eighty people and Swart says that they specialize in tracking and weighing solutions for conventional and trackless mines in the underground and surface mining environments. He adds that they track vehicles in an underground mine without Wi-Fi which makes them very unique.

Speaking ahead of the mission, the Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr. Rob Davies said the South African government through Mozambique for the realization of higher levels of industrialization through sustainable trade and investment.
