Bosch Rexroth appoints distributor in Tanzania

Second Quarter 2020 News & events

Hytec Services Africa (HSA) has awarded distribution rights in Tanzania to Magare. The company, which supplies services to general industry and the mining sector, will distribute all Bosch Rexroth products throughout Tanzania. Numerous companies were evaluated against a set of pre-determined criteria to establish the best potential business partner. “Magare has a division specialising in mechanical and electrical component sales and services the same customer base as Hytec Services Africa,” says Africa development manager, Louis Potter. “These factors, among others, perfectly position the company to be a distributor for the full product range from Bosch Rexroth.”

From l: Mabula Magangila, managing director, Magare; Louis Potter, development manager, HSA.

Tanzania has a large mining industry with a broad array of needs and HSA’s goal is to provide specialist solutions to address these specific customer requirements. Potter says: “We have developed good relationships with the larger mining groups to the point that more attention closer to home became necessary. Magare is the perfect in-country partner for us to ‘Move now, Drive tomorrow, Shape Africa’.”

The company will perform a sales service with specialist support from South Africa. “We intend building on this relationship through knowledge transfer to ultimately include service and repair capabilities in the future. These long-term partnership investments enable Bosch Rexroth to take its products, services and expertise into the broader African market and strengthen its position as a leading international fluid power and automation company,” Potter concludes.
