Greenville, SC (March 8, 2024) – IPS, a leading provider of aftermarket electromechanical and power management applications in North America, is proud to announce the launch of its dedicated Mining Services business as part of its ongoing commitment to excellence.

Jeff Sweers has been appointed the Senior Director of Mining Services, tasked with leading IPS’s mining growth initiatives and driving accelerated expansion in the mining segment. With a focus on mountain and western surface mining markets and energy transition metals, Sweers will spearhead initiatives such as IPS’s electric shovel mining program and develop field service offerings for surface mining customers through the Electromechanical Division and Power Management Division. Additionally, his role will facilitate IPS’s entry into new mining markets where the company does not currently have a presence.

Sweers, who joined IPS in 2017 as the IPS Denver Area General Manager, brings a wealth of experience to his new role. He was vital in delivering significant growth and profitability improvements for the service center. Before his tenure at IPS, Sweers held various positions with Flanders Inc. and Rockwell Automation, accumulating over 20 years of operations experience, both in-shop and as a field service technician.

In his new role, Sweers will continue to prioritize staff training, development, and servant leadership to ensure the delivery of quality and consistent services. Additionally, he will work towards increasing sales and profitability within IPS’s Mining Services business.

“I am excited to embark on this deeper journey into the world of mining where industry experts are overflowing with passion, great work ethic, and true grit. I look forward to strengthening my current relationships while building new ones,” said Sweers.

“We’re excited to have someone of Jeff’s stature, with his range of professional experience, to lead the Mining Services group,” said Jim Mugford, IPS Executive Vice President. “We are confident that under Jeff’s leadership, we will enhance our offerings and provide unparalleled support to customers in the mining industry.”
