Quality is everything

Quality is everything

Transpec – a 2009 Focus on Excellence Award nominee – prides itself on the fact that it is able to meet virtually any customer need. If a transport operator needs a specific trailer designed and built for a particular application, Transpec can deliver. FOCUS finds out how the company manages to accomplish this.
 
Lightening the load

Lightening the load

It is not very difficult to assess the impact that AFRIT has had on changing the way trailer manufacturing in South Africa is undertaken. With a current market share of approximately 25%, AFRIT remains a family business, as KERRY DIMMER describes, to continue its legacy with the generations of Van de Weterings to come.
 
A collection of firsts

A collection of firsts

When Isuzu Truck South Africa began operations locally on 1 January 2007, the manufacturer had only one goal in mind: to be the best. Since taking this decision, it has proved that in the very near future it might achieve just that.
 
The “boks” score countrywide

The “boks” score countrywide

In an economy where so many corporations are profit driven, it is refreshing to profile a company that is motivated by safety before money. Springbok Atlas is not just uplifting the reputation of South Africa as a responsible tourist destination, but, as KERRY DIMMER reveals, it is also charming the dispositions of the world’s greatest rugby, cricket and soccer players.
   
Proudly South African

Proudly South African

Keeping customers happy is what truck manufacturers and dealerships are all about, but it’s important for manufacturers to have their own identity as well, not only through their product, but also through their corporate identity. NADINE VON MOLTKE recently attended a press day where Isuzu Truck SA reiterated its position as an “after-sales company that happens to sell trucks”, as well as a company that is proudly South African.
 
Tipping the scales

Tipping the scales

Sweden has long been synonymous with products of strength and quality, and Swedish steel is no different. As the intellectual property of Swedish-based manufacturer SSAB, strong and durable Swedish steel has revolutionised heavy industries across the world. Now, through a partnership with SA Truck Bodies, it looks set to transform local transport as well.
 
Long-haul lifestyle; long-haul attitude

Long-haul lifestyle; long-haul attitude

Since its re-entry into the South African market in 1995, Scania has made it abundantly clear that it is here to stay. Continued investment despite a deepening recession confirms the seriousness of this attitude, as does the manufacturer’s determination to continue its market growth through a range of customer support system.
   
Keeping operators in top gear

Keeping operators in top gear

The repair of gearboxes and differentials is a difficult and complex process, and because of this it most often requires the skills of experienced specialists. FOCUS looks at Rex Diff and Gearbox (RDG), a company that has distinguished itself in this specialised field.
 
Better safe than sorry

Better safe than sorry

Obtaining a dangerous goods (DG) category professional driving permit (PrDP - D) can be a lengthy, confusing and often laborious process. But these stringent requirements exist for good reason: owing to the dangers involved, drivers of dangerous goods vehicles have to be reliable and well trained.
