Kal Tire’s mining tyre management leader, Mining Tire Group, and Pitcrew AI, a pioneer in autonomous vehicle inspection systems, today announced a new global mining partnership.

A signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) solidifies the existing collaboration between the two organisations and designates Kal Tire’s Mining Tire Group as Pitcrew AI’s preferred global partner.

The agreement capitalises on Kal Tire’s extensive customer network and will leverage its established presence in key mining regions to ensure widespread accessibility to Pitcrew AI’s leading technology.

“We have already forged a strong relationship with Pitcrew AI and this new partnership supports our unwavering commitment to innovation that delivers value to our customers worldwide and continues to enhance mining tire management,” Kal Tire’s Mining Group senior vice president Dan Allan said.

“We are thrilled to lock in our partnership and embark on the next phase of our journey with Pitcrew AI.”

Pitcrew AI chief executive officer Tim Snell said the partnership is poised to redefine industry processes and fast-track the journey to a more sustainable future in heavy vehicle tire management.

“Our collaboration has already had a significant impact of mine sites across many countries, particularly in the sustainability space,” he said.

“As part of our commitment to customers and mining operation optimisation, we are both committed to delivering strong customer value in a way that promotes sustainability and drives positive change.

“This is a really exciting prospect and something we are proud to be a part of.”

With multiple systems deployed across Australia, Canada, Brazil, Chile and Colombia, the Kal Tire and Pitcrew teams are firmly embedded within the global mining industry and seek to build upon current integrations.

“At a time when fleet planning teams need to make confident productivity and safety decisions quickly, this technology brings critical value – and we’re excited about what this milestone will mean for both Kal Tire and Pitcrew AI,” Allan said.

The alliance between the two companies will also be demonstrated at numerous exhibitions this year as Snell will be a part of Kal Tire’s presence at CIM Connect Expo in Vancouver, Canada, Electra Mining Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa, and MINExpo International in Las Vegas, US.
