Kemach has launched its new range of Kemach forklifts for the South African and sub-Saharan African markets, which will be promoted under the company’s newly-formed Kemach Forklifts division.
Speaking at the March 2020 presentation, held at its offices in Boksburg, Gauteng, Frans van den Heever, GM for KEMACH Forklifts said, “We at Kemach are delighted to announce the Kemach Forklift range, in partnership with Anhui HELI, which we believe will complement our existing quality earthmoving products. The Kemach Forklift range offers our customers a South African forklift warranty first – a five years/12 000-hour warranty on the complete machine, not just parts of the machine”.
The Kemach range of forklifts has specified Japanese engines, Heli built ZF transmissions and robotically manufactured chassis, ensuring premium brand quality at very competitive pricing.
“The range comprises from a walk-behind powered pallet jack up to 45-tonne container handling units, enabling us to compete in all sectors of the market. Kemach has a national footprint of 11 branches and 8 x sub-dealers across South Africa, giving us the biggest footprint in the materials handling industry when it comes to service-ability and guaranteeing uptime for our customers,” says Van den Heever.
The construction industry contributes 4% of the South African GDP and the forklift industry taps into more than 80% of the markets that form the GDP of South Africa, so we are confident and optimistic about our ability to successfully penetrate the materials handling markets, explains van den Heever.
The supplier agreement between Kemach Forklift and Anhui HELI was formed in January 2020. Anhui HELI is said to be the biggest forklift manufacturer in China and complies with all European standards as well as being ISO approved.
