One Key Resources parent company Fircroft, the global workforce solutions provider to the technical engineering industries, has appointed Grant Wechsel as Global Director of Mining.

Following Fircroft’s acquisition of One Key Resources in May 2016 Fircroft is targeting significant further growth in the global mining industry in 2017.

Wechsel will continue in his role as Managing Director of One Key Resources, overseeing the company’s Australasian operations, but will now also drive forward Fircroft’s global mining strategy.

Commenting on his appointment, Wechsel said:

“When assessing the opportunity for One Key Resources to become part of the Fircroft Group in early 2016, I was impressed by the relationships Fircroft had built with major engineering companies globally. I quickly recognised that Fircroft was in a prime position to mirror this success across the global mining industry.”

“Fircroft’s ability to support clients with the recruitment of senior technical specialists anywhere in the world has been central to their success to date and will be in an important part of our offer to global mining companies. I strongly believe the opportunity exists for Fircroft to leverage its nearly fifty years of experience to increase our market share in mining.”

“Our offices in 45 countries gives us a fantastic foundation to partner with, and provide services to, the biggest names in mining. 2017 will see Fircroft target mineral and resource rich countries in South America as we continue our long period of growth.”

One Key Resources and Fircroft offer a comprehensive range of mining workforce solutions including the recruitment of all disciplines for open cut and underground mining in any commodity. One Key Resources also provides industry leading mining training and productivity improvement services.
