BMG has strengthened its 20 year relationship with Fenner, by enhancing the Fenner power transmission portfolio, with the addition of Fenner conveyor belting products.
“Through a long-term agreement with Fenner Conveyor Belting, BMG is the exclusive distributor of Fenner conveyor belting products locally and in sub-Saharan Africa,” says Donovan Scott, business unit manager, bulk materials handling, BMG. “As part of this arrangement, BMG has also acquired Fenner’s Engineered Conveyor Solutions (ECS) service operations and related assets in South Africa.
“This means BMG now supplies a wide range of Fenner conveyor belting, which includes steel cord and solid woven conveyor belting. Fenner products are manufactured at the Isando plant, according to stringent international quality standards.
“Fenner’s field services teams have been integrated into the BMG Engineering Hub and we know that shared skills, equipment and experience will benefit our extended customer base.”
BMG – with a technically competent team and a well established network of over 130 branches – is well positioned to develop sales opportunities and provide support for Fenner conveyor belting.
Through this new agreement, BMG supplies the recently launched Fenner rEscan system, which is a belt diagnostic device – available as a purchase or rental option. The rental option includes monthly reports and technical back-up.
This highly effective tool is designed for preventive maintenance, ensuring reduced downtime on steel cord conveyors.
BMG’s technical solutions service, which includes 24-hour support, transforms quality products into innovative solutions and ensures operational efficiencies at every plant.
