Thumbs up for NAMPO!

Home Agriculture Thumbs up for NAMPO!

GRAIN SA’s NAMPO Agricultural Trade Show was back in full swing in May this year after being cancelled for two years because of COVID1-19. The BMG team was out in force and, Carlo Beukes, BMG’s agricultural manager said, “There was a renewed energy at this year’s event and we are encouraged by the fresh optimism in South Africa’s agricultural sector. The five-day event was the perfect opportunity to collaborate with industry stakeholders, suppliers and farmers and for exhibitors to showcase products and services,” Beukes said.

“Both BMG’s stands at this year’s Nampo show focused on the convenience and efficiency of the BMG online shopping platform, which was launched two years ago and is continually improved to make it easily accessible for engineering and agricultural components.

Online shopping convenience

“The company’s online 24-hour shopping platform is safe and easy to navigate and allows farmers to browse the site, select the products they want and then either “click and collect” from their nearest branch or receive their order via swift nationwide delivery.

“Although our online shopping platform offers farmers new opportunities for doing business, it is merely another channel and does not detract from the technical support and personal care that the BMG teams are well-known for. This facility adds value to our service offering and makes shopping for engineering components even more convenient for the agricultural community,” Beukes said.

Over 75 000 BMG products are available on this platform, including bearings, seals, fasteners and power transmission components, as well hand and power tools, abrasives, brushware, spanners, wrenches and sockets. Added to this are agricultural-specific components, including PTO shafts.

Nampo 2022 was also the perfect opportunity for the agricultural team to emphasise the importance of BMG’s Boer Slim/Smart Farming. This programme highlights the significance of the investment in quality equipment and replacement parts, rather than ‘cheap and inferior’ components, to achieve high efficiencies and optimum productivity in all sectors of agriculture.

On display was a wide range of BMG’s agricultural products, including bearings and seals, power transmission components, light industry conveyors, tools and fasteners, hydraulics and fluid technology, as well as all electronics equipment.

Workwear for when the going gets tough

What was new for BMG at Nampo this year, was an outside stand where there were working demonstrations. Product specialists focused on interacting with end-users, displaying the company’s product portfolio and engineering capabilities. There were also active conveyor systems in operation, which have been specifically designed for fruit packhouses.

Another major success for BMG was the launch of the 2022 range of Boerslim clothing, which is locally manufactured and perfectly suited for the tough African environment. These items are also available from BMG Online or from BMG outlets.
