Billed as one of the largest privately-organised and owned exhibitions of its kind in the world, BI marketing manager Gugulethu Nkutha says the event provided an ideal opportunity for the company to showcase its product and service offering to the agricultural sector.

BI’s diverse product line-up meets a broad spectrum of requirements of the South African agricultural sector. This runs the gamut from supplying bearings and chain to couplings and transmission products for arduous farming applications such as ploughing, planting, harvesting and baling.

BI is also able to provide expert advice on keeping farming equipment operating at optimum efficiency, in addition to outlining the most optimal maintenance procedures. It carries a comprehensive stockholding of spares, in addition to chain and V-belt drives.

“We work together with our customers, with the understanding that the current economic environment places more pressure on them to do more with less; together we ensure they grow, while we grow,” Nkutha highlights.

A highlight of BI’s participation at this year’s event was the presence of a dedicated sales team and product managers to answer all customer queries and to provide comprehensive information on the brands represented.

Top international brands showcased by BI at NAMPO 2016 included KML (bearings and transmission components), Loctite (adhesives, sealants and surface treatment), FAG (specialist bearings), Citronol (hand cleaners), Makita (power tools), Rocol (lubricants), Dodge (housed bearings), KML, Agri Chain, TR Gearboxes, Jonnesway and Opti/Goodyear.

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