Repairs and maintenance work in Zimbabwe are done at the customer’s site. Troubleshooting is the first part of the process before any required spares are bought. Work is then completed at site.

However, any major Electrical and Mechanical repairs are done in our workshop in Kimberley South Africa. The largest machine that the workshop can handle is 15 Ton assembled.

Repairs include LV and MV motors, DC motors, alternators, generators, transformers, pumps, motor and gearbox combinations as well as fans.

In our service workshop, we have special areas for specialized services we render. This includes a clean room for the manufacture of MV coils, a winding area for LV and MV, DC stators, rotors and armatures.

All mechanical repairs are done in our fully equipped machine shop, these services include micro- welding and machining of worn shafts as well as milling, drilling and slotting operations needed in the repair and manufacture of components.

Specialized assembly and manufacturing areas in the workshop are dedicated to the manufacture and assembly of new pumps, submersible motors and gearboxes.

All testing of repaired and manufactured equipment is performed in house. We have a well-equipped Testing Section, which assures that our customers get only the very best quality product.
