Pic 2 PR BOS 5070 Tanzania Containerised Hose Workshop

Magare Company Limited, the newly appointed Sales Partner for Hytec Services Africa has secured a HSA containerised hydraulic hose workshop to further extend its reach in the country. Supplementing Magare’s Mwanza branch’s ability to provide hydraulic equipment and services to mines in the Lake Zone Region around Mwanza, the containerised workshop became operational on 1 January 2021.

Housed in a Hytec-branded 40-foot shipping container and operational on Magare’s premises, the mobile workshop is always ready for mobilisation to provide comprehensive services on any mine site. It is fully-equipped with crimping and cut-off machines; and stocked with hoses, fittings and adapters; hose grinder and skiving equipment.

Delivery and setup were prompt, allowing Hytec Services Africa personnel sufficient time to carry out staff training, which included product identification codes and part numbering, fitting identification and hose-making. Louis Potter, Africa Development Manager for Hytec Services Africa, spent three weeks on site in Tanzania to oversee the Magare staff training and container setup.

“Considering the challenges of 2020, Magare Company Limited has successfully entered the hydraulic market in Tanzania,” says Potter. “They have a solid footprint on the mines in Tanzania and, through the containerised workshop, are now empowered to offer hose making services. We believe this added service offering will allow our Sales Partner to expand its footprint and to incorporate other hydraulic components into its offering in the future. Magare has employed personnel that understand the local hydraulics market and its challenges. This, too, will ensure future growth.”

Since the official set up of the containerised workshop, there has been growing interest from potential users and sure signs this is going to be a successful venture.

To satisfy envisaged demand for the Bosch Rexroth hydraulics range, Magare is in the process of building a larger workshop at its premises in Mwanza. Magare also has an operation in Dar Es Salaam to cater to the requirements in this city.
