The fact that BI has been represented at NAMPO for the last 15-plus years is testament to the importance of the agricultural industry as a growth market, which is serviced under its comprehensive Agri-Smart banner. “We maximise our exposure to the farming community through this high-profile event,” BI Business Development Leader – Agriculture Gerhard Pienaar highlights.

“What continues to differentiate us in this highly-competitive market is our comprehensive approach to our agricultural customers, predicated on our vision and commitment to be the number one supplier of top-quality products to this industry,” Pienaar comments. “Agriculture is a very important growth market for us.”

The main products that BI supplies to this market are focused on bearings, power take-off (PTO), hub units, coulters, electric motors, belts, and pulleys. The highly sought-after Jonnesway Agrl Toolbox will be available at a special discounted price for the duration of NAMPO 2019, while the full range of adhesives, sealants, and surface treatment products from Loctite will be represented.

Other products on display will include Bauer aluminium three-phase 380V motors, Citronol environment-friendly hand cleaners and degreasers, Makita cordless power tools, Rocol lubricants, and Dodge housed bearings and shaft-mounted gearboxes. New products to be showcased will be Agri HUB bearings and BI’s new 200 ml blue and white high-quality Agri Grease sachets for general-purpose agricultural application.

Apart from Strobel and Pienaar, the full BI team at NAMPO 2019 includes Regional Managers Graham Spilsbury, Werner Coetzee and Jurgens Pieterse, together with Senior Sales Representative Stanley Pretorius, and Branch Managers Mike Groenewald and Frans Labuschagne.
