Wacker Neuson take local conditions in their stride

09 July 2014

Wacker Neuson South Africa, local subsidiary of the Wacker Neuson Group is a leading supplier of light and compact machines, equipment and allied services to sub-Saharan Africa.

Quality, performance, efficiency and innovation are intrinsic to Wacker Neuson’s comprehensive offering; concrete consolidation, compaction, worksite technologies, excavation and materials handling product and service solutions meet a wide range of applications in construction, mining, general industry, agriculture, local authorities, gardening and landscaping.

“We understand the importance of getting a job done quickly at the lowest costs and, most importantly, completing it effectively, correctly and efficiently. This is where we give the end-user peace of mind because our products combine the fundamentals of speed, reliability, performance and safety. Operator safety and comfort are central to equipment performance, “and thus ultimately to productivity,” says Wacker Neuson Africa’s Regional President, Eugene Brown.

“Our products are thus ergonomically engineered to incorporate numerous operator-friendly features to ensure comfortable operation and reduce fatigue. Ultimately it is our customers who benefit from subsequent high return on investment and low cost of ownership over the equipment’s life span.”

Brown points out that the company‘s compact equipment take local conditions in their stride „because they are specifically tailored to the needs of our local customers. Our Value Rammer for instance, is proof of the success we are achieving with this approach. Since its introduction to the local market in January 2013, we have seen exceptional demand for the machine, without diluting the sales of our other rammer offerings.”

When it comes to compaction technology, the Wacker Neuson range of equipment delivers where it matters most – high performance that is both reliable and efficient: Vibratory rammers, ride-on and walk-behind rollers, single direction and reversible vibratory plates, and of course, the market leading remote-controlled trench rollers.

With Wacker Neuson’s range of worksite technology products, every need is taken care of, from demolition breakers to worksite lighting, through a range of innovative and cost-effective electric- and petrol-powered breakers, cut-off and floor saws, light balloons and light towers and a range of pups to suit almost every application.

Wacker Neuson’s concrete equipment meets the stringent conditions of this time-critical environment without compromise: Internal and external vibrators, portable and stationary frequency converters, low-noise vibratory tables, walk-behind and ride-on power trowels, vibratory screeds and rebar tools make up the concrete product offering.

Since Wacker Neuson launched its compact equipment range, the company has rapidly become a serious contender in the Southern Africa market with the supply of excavators, all wheel steer loaders, skid steer loaders, dumpers and telescopic handlers. A unique product offered is the telescopic wheel loader, giving owners the versatility of being able to do digging and loading work, together with being able to load at height.

Competent sales, after-sales, comprehensive spares and accessories and a commitment to rapid parts supply are the cornerstones of Wacker Neuson with Johannesburg head office supported by branches in Cape Town and Durban as well as a strategic network of seven dealers in Port Elizabeth, East London, Louis Trichardt, Swaziland, Mozambique, Botswana and Namibia.
