Hytec Hydraulics Botswana opens service centre

First Quarter 2020 News & events

Hytec Hydraulics Botswana recently officially opened its service centre in Gaborone. Tillmann Olsen, CEO for Bosch Rexroth South Africa, said the company is the largest manufacturer and supplier of hydraulic, pneumatic and automation components and systems in sub-Saharan Africa and the new workshop symbolises its ambition to set the highest standards in all areas of business. He added that Hytec Botswana will be supported by the Rexroth HUBB in Johannesburg where there is a concentration of highly skilled employees. “The HUBB’s training facilities will enhance the knowledge of employees across the continent,” he continued.

Charles Siwawa, CEO of the Botswana Chambers of Mines (BCM), said that he was looking forward to sharing product knowledge and expertise. “Development and deployment of the right skills within industry will play a crucial role in the efficient execution of the BCM’s mandate,” he said. Gerald Handke, Bosch Rexroth vice president of service at Mobile Hydraulics Germany, described how Africa’s attractiveness as a mining and minerals market is playing an increasingly important role for Bosch Rexroth. “Africa plays a key role in our global growth strategy,” he said. “Our head office in Germany will be supporting the Botswana branch with training, technical support, auditing and certification.”

Whether it’s a hydraulic cylinder for a mining truck or a conveyor on a diamond mine, Hytec Hydraulics Botswana is committed as a partner in the economic, financial and social development of the nation’s mining and exploration industries.
