This is a technical information and problem-solving service aimed at presenting sound cases to potential customers to opt for BI products in order to meet a specific business need, explains engineering manager Josué Pérez-Sánchez.

“We follow a process of gathering information about a customer’s particular application in order to be able to offer the most informed decision possible when it comes to recommending a BI product, Pérez-Sánchez explains.

“We give customers peace of mind by providing the correct recommendations with regard to plant improvement and reduced downtime. Each customer project gives us the opportunity to improve both our product offering and service implementation,” Pérez-Sánchez comments.

The information provided by the potential customer is used to highlight aspects such as seal design improvements, lubrication systems or products, fitment tools and/or procedures, training in terms of bearing installation procedures and any additional power transmission requirements.

“Our capabilities in terms of application engineering not only promotes the capabilities of BI as a technical partner, but also opens doors to ancillary products in our extensive range,” Pérez-Sánchez concludes.

BI, part of the Hudaco Group, has consolidated its position as a leading distributor of bearings and power transmission products in Southern Africa by launching a new brand identity at the end of last year.

“Our aim is to become a proactive company providing excellent service to our customers to ensure we are the preferred supplier. We strongly believe we should rather compete on value, providing advanced, industry-specific solutions and services, and thus safeguard industry sustainability,” Burtie Roberts, CEO of BI, elaborates.
