Tectra Automation increases Accuride stockholding
2nd Quarter 2016, News & events


Tectra Automation has recently been appointed as the sole distributor of Accuride in sub-Saharan Africa. Originally appointed as an official distributor in 2012, the demand for Accuride industrial slides has grown to the extent that the sole distributors are now stocking a range of light to extra heavy duty linear motion slides and telescopic slides. Known globally for their versatility in a wide range of applications and with rugged, modular construction, Accuride’s industrial slides are ideal in a wide range of market sectors, from commercial vehicles to military electronics.

“Accuride products offer more than just the standard ball bearing telescopic slide,” explains product manager, Greg Calder. “This is a specialised range that offers locking mechanisms, multi-angle positioning and various materials of construction to suit demanding African application requirements.” The range now includes Accuride linear motion slides from light duty (130 kg) to extra heavy duty (360 kg) as well as the telescopic range which consists of light to heavy duty slides with loading capacities from 17 to 227 kg.

Along with the large stockholding that will reduce lead times from two weeks to just three days, the agreement will also increase service and support capabilities in the region. Accuride is the only company in the industry to offer a lifetime warranty on its range of industrial slides. “Accuride is a premium brand that represents quality, reliability and customer reassurance, and together with our range of Bosch Rexroth linear motion products we are able to offer our customers holistic solutions to virtually any application,” concludes Calder.
