Wacker Neuson South Africa digs better returns for SA compact fleet owner

Wacker Neuson South Africa

Floor Maintenance Equipment Services also rents out its compact equipment to construction, airport and road building industries.

Based in Benoni, Gauteng, Floor Maintenance Equipment Services has been trading in South Africa for the past 21 years. In addition to repairs and maintenance on industrial cleaning equipment, the company also rents out compact equipment to, among others, the construction, airport and road building industries.

Owner Leon van Vuuren says he was extremely impressed with his first 701 skid steer loader that he bought from Wacker Neuson a little over a year ago.  “When I later needed to upgrade to a bigger model to meet different application requirements, I didn’t hesitate to buy the larger Wacker Neuson 901 skid steer loader and I’ve never looked back. These machines deliver great power, are operator-friendly and easy to manoeuvre, features which my customers truly appreciate.”

“Wacker Neuson has made a difference to my business and I plan to replace my entire fleet of machines with Wacker Neuson equipment in the near future,” says Van Vuuren.

Using many different attachments such as milling tools, augers, forks, buckets and breakers on his skid steer loaders, Van Vuuren appreciates the fact that both machines can conveniently take virtually any attachment, including hi-flow or standard-flow. “This versatility saves me a lot of time and money,” he adds.

When it comes to aftersales service, Van Vuuren says Wacker Neuson South Africa has surpassed his expectations. He speaks highly of the company’s sales team and regional president for sub-Saharan Africa, Eugene Brown, for the hands-on approach. “As I build my Wacker Neuson fleet, I look forward to further strengthening the relationship with this professional company who is without any doubt my preferred compact equipment supplier,” says Van Vuuren.

“We are really fortunate to have customers like Leon, who are prepared to walk the path with us in building a strong reliable partnership between our companies,” says Brown.

Equipment Africa says: The reliability and versatility of Wacker Neuson machines is well documented. But, having a good machine is one thing, and being able to provide the much-needed aftersales support is quite another. In an environment where downtime is out of question, a strong national footprint allows Wacker Neuson South Africa to take care of the needs of its customers timeously.
