Bosch Rexroth hosts customers at the Bosch Rexroth HUBB

Third Quarter 2019 News & events

The Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies recently held its first customer day at the Rexroth HUBB in Kempton Park. In a celebration of the Group’s relationships with its customers and business partners, customers were treated to a tour around the 16 000 m2 facility, showcasing the numerous modern engineering and production facilities.

Working demonstrations of the various technologies and systems offered by the Group, in addition to a large collection of products and components from across the 30+ international brands it represents in Africa, were on show in the assembly areas. Facilities such as the Group’s hydraulics and pneumatics test rigs and training rooms, and solutions such as Hytec Services Africa’s containerised mobile hose workshops for mines were also open to customers.

“Bosch Rexroth South Africa is an integral part of the entire Rexroth Group,” said Group executive president and chief financial officer, Dr Markus Forschner. “Our commitment to quality, innovation and customer focus is clearly demonstrated today. The building, the production environment, but most importantly everyone in this organisation, reflects our motto: We Move, You Win.”

Over 250 of the Group’s valued customers attended, and were joined by regional president for Africa and Group CEO, Tillmann Olsen, Forschner, as well as general managers and staff from the Group. Customers were able to discuss their application challenges with the Group’s specialists across its hydraulics, pneumatics, assembly, linear motion and automation offerings to identify potential avenues of performance and process optimisation.
