RAIMONDI APPOINTS ZLT TOWER CRANES AS OFFICIAL DEALER FOR EIGHT AFRICAN COUNTRIES
Raimondi has appointed South Africa based ZLT Tower Cranes as the official dealer for its luffing and topless tower cranes and accessories in eight African countries including South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Mauritius, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
ZLT Tower Cranes, part of a collective of companies that draws on more than 35 years of experience in the heavy machinery segment and various other construction sectors including mining, will also be providing after sales care and service and maintenance programs.
Mauro Masetti, chief commercial officer, Raimondi Cranes, said: “ZLT Cranes is dynamic company with considerable market knowledge. This is paired with experience in selling lifting products to a wide range of clients for a variety of purposes, from residential developments to infrastructure projects to the mining industry. Our initial discussions quickly indicated that the company’s on-the-ground experience together with a demonstrated history of success in the regional construction sector would prove valuable as a partnership.”
Rob Cook, director, ZLT
Tower Cranes, said: “ZLT is proud to inaugurate our agency appointment with our first sale of a Raimondi MRT159 topless tower crane to one of South Africa’s most notable gold producers. Harmony Gold will be utilizing the MRT159 at the Great Noligwa Gold Mine at Vaal Reef, situated in the north-western region of South Africa. Since 2006, I have been involved in the sale of over 290 mobile and crawler cranes in South Africa and other African countries. Based on my years in the regional marketplace, I anticipate that Raimondi will be very warmly welcomed due the quality and durability of its machinery range.”
Cook added that African market demands, varying from country to country, are unified by the fact that the lifecycles of existing heavy lifting machinery are coming to a close, prompting fleet upgrades and allowing for the positioning of new machines across some of the biggest mining operations regionally.
