“This fills a big gap in our product line,” said Bill Hensler, president, Becker Wholesale Mine Supply. “We can now offer add on ‘hot spots’ to customers that have our leaky feeder solution as well as complete “portal to face” network IP solutions to the rest of the market. It’s a perfect product for new mines that are just being developed.”

“This gives us the focused access to the U.S. market that we have lacked,” said Heidi Levitt, president, NL Technologies. “The rest of the world is embracing NL Digital and now U.S. mines will have the same opportunity. Becker doesn’t have any distractions; they are a mine communications company. These products will prove themselves and with the Becker support network, mining customers can assure themselves of a quality network solution with local support and service.”
