The machines are refurbished in our workshops by highly qualified technicians, to the highest standards. These workshops have previously been cited by Caterpillar representatives as “one of the best refurbishing facilities in the world.”
Our staff of over 450 employees consists of highly skilled individuals who constantly undergo training. We are proud to note that our staff retention is high, and for that reason, the technical know-how of our team is constantly growing.
Our division has fully equipped workshops with 20 general bays that are constantly upgraded. The newest workshop addition is a hydraulic workshop in which hydraulic pumps and cylinders are rebuilt and tested. We also have facilities in which we do our own chroming of cylinders. Other workshop facilities include four modern bays for engine, transmission and differential rebuilds.
After completing the refurbishing process, all machines are tested for up to 50 hours at a test site to ensure that all components are in perfect working order. No piece of equipment, part or component leaves our site without being subject to this stringent on-site testing. We pride ourselves on our rigorous 200-point BLC quality check.
Once we are satisfied that the machines are in 100% working condition, we again apply a high pressure wash to the units, and paint them according to their original specifications. At this point, we also fit new decals. New tyres are fitted to wheeled machines and new undercarriages to track machines.
