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.
