Epiroc completes acquisition of RNP México

The acquisition of RNP México will strengthen company’s offering of rock drills and spare parts mainly in Latin America

Mining and infrastructure productivity partner Epiroc has completed its acquisition of RNP México, a manufacturer of rock drills and related spare parts.

RNP México is based in San Luis Potosi state, Mexico, and has branches in Chile and Peru; it is said to employ 370 people and had 2021 revenues of approximately $28mn. The company develops, manufactures, and sells rock drills and related components, serving mining and construction customers mainly in Latin America.

In July 2022, Sandvik said it completed testing of Cat HVO capable engines on mining and construction equipment.

“This acquisition will strengthen Epiroc’s offering of rock drills and spare parts primarily in Latin America. We look forward to welcoming RNP México to Epiroc,” says Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO.

Last month Epiroc announced that it had agreed to acquire RNP México subject to the completion of certain closing conditions, which have now been satisfied.

Late in July, Metso Outotec said it would deliver the world’s largest Premier grinding mills to a Zambian copper mine, while in early August, Weir announced that Ricardo Garib will retire as President of Weir.
