Hydraulic and Automation Warehouse (HAW) showcased eight of its niche product lines at NAMPO 2019. Formally known as Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day, the exhibition takes place annually at NAMPO Park near Bothaville in the Free State.
The four-day exhibition ran from 14 to 17 May, with HAW’s focus this year on its Uniflex Grease Crimpers – specifically the Uniflex UG20; SALAMI gear pumps and valve banks; the M+S Hydraulic gerolor and gerotor motors and M+S Hydraulic steering orbitals; and tie-rod cylinders. Other products in the line-up included Intertraco hose and fittings, OMT filters and LuEn in-line components.
HAW’s stand attracted more show-goers than previous years, with the Uniflex Grease Crimper, and the SALAMI and M+S Hydraulic brands drawing a lot of attention. “We saw a marked increase in overall enquiries compared to previous years, many of them resulting in spin-off business opportunities,” says Neville Alberts, HAW Johannesburg Branch Manager. “Many show-goers complimented us on our one-stop-shop setup, commenting that they prefer companies with a complete product offering.” He added that the majority of potential grease crimper buyers plan to use them to service the farms in the areas they operate.”
“Interacting with Free State-based resellers and distributors is the highlight of this annual event for us,” Alberts points out. “It is the stage where we connect with existing customers to promote new products and technologies, and introduce our products, technologies and brands to potential new customers. The increase in the number of enquiries at this year’s NAMPO indicates a rise in the number of people interested in doing business with HAW.”
HAW has the technologies, quality products and industry expertise to provide application-specific, cost-effective hydraulic solutions that can enhance agricultural equipment and machinery. “We use NAMPO as an oppotunity to demonstrate our commitment to agricultural equipment OEMs, and to get customer feedback and suggestions for exploring new technologies. We’re looking forward to seeing how HAW will be able to meet any new requirements identified by our target markets.”
