Since 2015, KVX’s business is growing in Russia. Thanks to a good partnership between KVX and its dealers, this trend is expected to continue for years to come.

KVX knows a success story in Russia thanks to a great partnership with dealers Sonda LLC, Mining Solutions, Sumitec International and Komatsu CIS LLC Russia. The KVX brand is well known as a bolt-on GET system helping Russian Mines to reduce the excavation costs. KVX is also a growing player for underground application and quarries.

For the past four years, we have been particularly proud to see that our GET and buckets are showing good results and satisfy the operators who have chosen to convert to KVX. To continue this success, we can rely on our dealers but also on the support of Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Government’s most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry.
