The Industrial Equipment division provides distribution, leasing, rental and value-added services for industrial, materials handling and agricultural equipment in South Africa, various other African countries, the UK and Ireland.

The division primarily services blue chip clients in a wide range of sectors. These span retail, manufacturing, ports and container handling, mining, warehousing, airports, fast-moving consumer goods and agriculture.

The division is the largest supplier of forklifts to the South African market and has the largest product support infrastructure in the region.

The division achieves value creation and a competitive advantage through high-quality aftermarket services. Client engagement is proactively handled at various levels through multi-tier relationships. Service support meetings are held at least monthly with key clients.

The core business of the division is the sale, rental and aftermarket support of forklift equipment. Expansion of the division has been from this base and is driven by a clear strategic focus – offering clients a total materials handling solution to meet their requirements.

In line with this model, the division has supplemented its offering of forklift equipment with value-added services and products such as batteries and chargers for forklifts, industrial cleaning equipment for client’s premises and the supply of compressed air.

The growth of the division’s business into the agriculture sector was driven by the potential to leverage relationships built with agriculture sector clients during forklift sales to enter the high-volume tractor business.

In identifying expansion opportunities, the division targets globally recognised brands only. Due to the investment made in aftermarket support, the division targets only exclusive distributorships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
