Distributor boosts sales with ‘toolkit’ initiative

Home Engineering Engineering & Allied Supplies Distributor boosts sales with ‘toolkit’ initiative

IN an effort to promote SKF’s MaPro and Power Transmission sales within their branch network as well as various markets, SKF South Africa’s authorised distributor, Bolt & Engineering Distributors (Group) (B.E.D.)  in Rustenburg have grouped a series of SKF tools into what they believe is a useful and practical ‘toolkit’.

B.E.D. called on SKF’s expertise in putting the MaPro/Power Transmission toolkits together. Working in collaboration with SKF’s respective MaPro and Power Transmission Product Managers, Eddie Martens and Frans Odendaal, they assembled a kit made up of a TKBA 10 belt alignment tool, a PUBSDC1007 Tensioner Tester and a PHGT/C1 006 Pulley Gauge.

According to Martens and Odendaal, the toolkit has been a great success, serving as a drawcard for customers in the Rustenburg area.

“B.E.D. is now able to effectively showcase these products to their customer databases,” Martens said.

“In addition to strengthening the relationship between the two companies, B.E.D.’s resourcefulness has unquestionably led to an increased awareness of our MaPro and Power Transmission product portfolios amongst end-users,” Odendaal added.
