Chicago Pneumatic extends South African network
16 October 2014
Johannesburg, South Africa, headquartered BMI Group has been appointed by Chicago Pneumatic as its latest authorised dealer to support its expansion in the region. BMI will offer to CP’s ranges of handheld pneumatic, hydraulic and petrol driven tools as well its compaction equipment, carrier mounted attachments, portable compressors, generators and light towers.
Jacques van der Westhuizen, business development manager for Chicago Pneumatic in Southern Africa, commented: “South Africa is a very tough and competitive market, but with BMI's reputation for excellent service, backup and customer support, we managed to secure the order. It is for this reason that we are pleased to add BMI to Chicago Pneumatic’s growing distributor network in South Africa, which we see as an important international market and major potential area for growth.”
“What ultimately made us decide to partner with Chicago Pneumatic is the tried and tested nature of their equipment, which is ruggedly built and ideally suited for use in tough African working conditions,” commented David Ireland, managing director of BMI Group. “This, and the diverse range of competitively priced construction equipment solutions on offer, made us jump at the opportunity to work with Chicago Pneumatic, which we see as a great fit for our customer base.”
