Local has a lot to offer
Bauma Africa may have come and gone but Bell Equipment is excited and proud to have supported an international exhibition of this stature on our doorstep. It was a prime opportunity to promote the Bell brand by showcasing the best of local manufacture.
Visitors to our stand at Bauma Africa would have seen our innovative new concepts, the expansion of our strategic partnerships and growth of the Bell product offering. All with the aim of living up to our position as Africa’s premier heavy equipment manufacturer and supplier and providing the marketplace with quality, lowest cost per tonne equipment solutions.
As the leading local OEM we have a lot to offer our customers. Over and above our wide range of world-class products, we have the most comprehensive customer support network to make sure that you get the maximum uptime and productivity from your machines no matter where in the region you may be.
Bauma Africa came at an opportune time to bring together the various role players and we look forward to the positive spin-offs the show promises to bring to the region, the construction industry and our customers.
Here’s wishing you a peaceful festive season and a prosperous New Year.
