Tega Industries South Africa will be showing its new face at Electra Mining 2014 when it reveals an array of new mining products and services that it will be offering from its modern new manufacturing plant in Vulcania, Brakpan.
The company has invested millions of Rands in the construction of its high-tech premises, as well as design systems, equipments and testing facilities to ensure its manufacturing standards are in line with global requirements. It has also significantly increased capacity to easily meet demand from the entire sub-region and has put experts in place to manage and provide technical support on various product lines and clients.
All the improvements have culminated in Tega Industries South Africa now being able to offer clients a truly end-to-end service when it comes to the provision of wear resistance, materials handling and minerals processing solutions for mining, as well as industrial applications.
“Electra Mining is an important launch pad for us to introduce our vastly expanded product offering to the southern African mining fraternity. Although our general engineering and rubber technology expertise has always been top-class, the recruitment of specific skills for different applications and mining processes is allowing us to become far more involved in customers’ processes and more involved in the overall optimization of customers’ processing plants.
“These changes are also in line with our global ambition to provide total solutions to different mines’ processing requirements – from the rock face to the beneficiation of end-products. This means that we are expanding our offering from the mainstay supply of liners, screen panels and related products, to all areas of a mine processing plant (which includes ores separation, materials handling, chemical treatment etc),” says Vishal.

He adds that in order to show the industry its enhanced capabilities, Tega Industries staff from each-and-every department and office will be present during the show to liaise with customers and provide hands-on advice and service to show-goers. “Everyone from our logistics department to stores, accounts, design, manufacturing etc will be on-hand to discuss customers’ requirements. Our sales and marketing team will also be present to discuss key product groupings that range from mill liners to screen panels, hydro cyclones, trommels, conveyor components, wear parts and custom-designed product for anywhere else that they are required.
“Show organizers are expecting about 40 000 visitors at this year’s show and we want to reach out to all of them and show them how our new products and services are designed to delight them rather than merely just satisfy their needs.
“For this reason we have two large welcoming stands (indoors and outdoors) that are well-placed to host clients and potential clients and to show them what Tega Industries South Africa is all about. We will also have senior representatives from our head office in India, as well as other plants around the world, present on the stand to share insight into other global mining practices.
“The African market is important to Tega Industries globally and our ongoing investment into the continent has enabled us to transform our local operation into a truly world-class African manufacturer. Our African roots mean that we understand African requirements (and challenges) and are in the best position to manufacture solutions that meet local requirements,” concludes Vishal.
