Bosch Rexroth Africa Development, a Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group company, has reported the appointment of Hazmat Innovations Limited as its first Zambian distributor, effective 1 February 2022. The company will offer the entire scope of Bosch Rexroth SA Group’s products and services to customers across the country.
This appointment enables Bosch Rexroth to increase its footprint in Zambia, covering all strategic market segments in the country’s 10 provinces. “Hazmat Innovations’ business strategy aligns closely with ours, and their objective is to capitalise on the installed base in the Zambian market,” explains Lennox Joubert, Business Development Manager, Bosch Rexroth Africa Development. “At least 15 major customers have been ear-marked to consolidate this drive”.
The company’s newly appointed distributor specialises in the repair, rebuild and supply of engineering products for heavy duty vehicles, mainly for mining houses and agriculture industries. It also offers support services in terms of skilled technicians and subcontract works to these market segments. The company became operational in 2004 and has an extensive footprint with 154 skilled employees stationed at various mining sites and has sufficient in-country capacity to carry out installations, commissioning and field services. It will also offer customers aftersales services and support.
The distribution rights will be held for one year, to be reviewed on a yearly basis. Tailored training programmes are being offered to the new distributor, to empower them with further product knowledge and expertise.
