Magare Company Limited, the newly appointed Sales Partner for Hytec Services Africa, has secured an HSA containerised hydraulic hose workshop to expand its reach in the country. The containerised workshop began to be active on January 1, 2021, strengthening Magare’s Mwanza branch’s capabilities to deliver hydraulic equipment and services to mines in the Lake Zone Region surrounding Mwanza.
The mobile workshop, housed in a Hytec-branded 40-foot shipping container and operating on Magare’s premises, is constantly available for mobilization to provide comprehensive services on any mine site. It has crimping and cut-off machines, as well as hoses, fittings, and adapters, as well as a hose grinder and skiving equipment.
Hytec Services Africa personnel were able to complete staff training, which included product identification codes and part numbers, fitting identification, and hose-making because delivery and setup were completed on schedule. Louis Potter, Hytec Services Africa’s Africa Development Manager, spent three weeks on-site in Tanzania overseeing Magare team training and container setup.
“Considering the challenges of 2020, Magare Company Limited has successfully entered the hydraulic market in Tanzania,” says Potter. “They have a solid footprint on the mines in Tanzania and, through the containerised workshop, are now empowered to offer hose making services. We believe this added service offering will allow our Sales Partner to expand its footprint and to incorporate other hydraulic components into its offering in the future. Magare has employed personnel that understand the local hydraulics market and its challenges. This, too, will ensure future growth.”
Since the official launch of the containerised workshop, there has been an increase in interest from potential users, indicating that this will be a successful endeavour.
Magare is constructing a new facility at its Mwanza headquarters to meet anticipated demand for the Bosch Rexroth hydraulics series. Magare also has a branch in Dar Es Salaam to meet the needs of the city’s residents.
