Bolting systems calibration centre for Ghana

First Quarter 2020 News & events

Bosch Rexroth Ghana has launched a new SPX FLOW Bolting Systems calibration centre to provide local calibration and services for its bolting systems technologies. Located at Bosch Rexroth’s existing Ghana facility in Takoradi, the calibration service centre has installed two dedicated workbenches for the calibration of torque wrenches and pumps. The rigs can test and calibrate bolting systems, tools and equipment with capacities of up to 50 000 Nm.

“There is a great demand for local services and having this facility fits well with the Bosch Rexroth business and is great for local customers,” says Alexander Booth, regional manager for Bosch Rexroth Ghana. West Africa is a recognised hub for minerals mining, and oil and gas exploration and production. Bosch Rexroth and SPX FLOW Bolting Systems have an established and trusted history in the supply of controlled bolting solutions and services in the area. The new calibration centre will offer enhanced local support to customers in West Africa.

The Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies has been an official distributor of the SPX FLOW Bolting Systems range of products for 35 years and the new calibration centre forms part of its wide distribution and service network in Africa and Bosch Rexroth’s continuing customer service and support.
