FLSmidth has confirmed the signing of a definitive agreement for the acquisition of KnowledgeScape, a global leader in digital optimisation solutions for the mineral processing industry.
The addition of KnowledgeScape’s advanced solutions to FLSmidth’s digital ENABLRTM portfolio will deliver an expanded range of benefits to customers, from increased automation to improved reliability and enhanced productivity.
