BMG celebrates Fenner’s 90 years of business in SA
1st Quarter 2019, News & events
BMG – which acquired Fenner Power Transmission (FPT) over 20 years ago – is celebrating Fenner’s 90th year of business in South Africa this year. “The BMG team is proud to be the exclusive distributors of highly acclaimed Fenner products, which have been manufactured in South Africa for longer than any other power transmission brand,” says power transmission business unit manager, Carlo Beukes. “Fenner, which was established in England in 1861, remains the premium brand in power transmission that generations of professional engineers have depended on and trusted.”
BMG’s Fenner range – which consists of transmission and drive chains, vee and wedge belts, tyre and grid couplings, timing belts, sprockets and pulleys and shaft mounted speed reducers – enables BMG to work with all sectors of industry. The company also services the industrial and mining replacement and re-sale markets and is a supplier to original equipment manufacturers.
A strategic decision was made by BMG earlier this year to expand the portfolio, with the addition of Fenner conveyor belting products. Through a long-term agreement with Fenner Conveyor Belting, BMG is now the exclusive distributor of Fenner conveyor belting products locally and in sub-Saharan Africa. Fenner conveyor belting products, which include steel cord and solid woven conveyor belting, are manufactured at the Isando plant according to stringent international quality standards.
BMG is committed to continue leading the way in a highly competitive industry by ensuring the local market has access to world leading products.
