Bosch Rexroth Africa Development announced the appointment of Hazmat Innovations Limited as its first Zambian distributor, effective 1 February 2022. The company will offer the entire scope of Bosch Rexroth SA Group products and services to customers across the country.
This appointment enables Bosch Rexroth SA to increase its footprint in Zambia, covering all strategic market segments in the country’s 10 provinces. “Hazmat Innovations’ business strategy aligns closely with that of Bosch Rexroth, and their objective is to capitalise on the installed base in the Zambian market,” explains Lennox Joubert, Business Development Manager, Bosch Rexroth Africa Development. “At least 15 major customers have been ear-marked to consolidate this drive.”
Hazmat Innovations specialises in the repair, rebuild and supply of engineering products for heavy-duty vehicles, mainly for mining houses and agriculture industries. It also offers support services in terms of skilled technicians and subcontract works to these market segments. The company became operational in 2004 and has an extensive footprint with 154 skilled employees stationed at various mining sites.
Hazmat Innovations has sufficient in-country capacity to carry out installations, commissioning and field services. It will also offer customers aftersales services and support. Bosch Rexroth Africa Development will provide in-country support as needed.
