At this year’s NAMPO, Goscor Lift Truck Company will give the agricultural community a lift by showcasing products and solutions that offer lower total cost of ownership to end users.
Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day – a staple on the calendar of the South African agricultural community and those who serve it – enables producers and other role players in the agricultural industry to experience the latest products and solutions on offer in the farming industry first-hand and in one place.
Attracting close to 77 000 visitors and over 650 exhibitors every year, the show is one of the biggest agricultural exhibitions in the Southern Hemisphere. GLTC is returning to this year’s show, scheduled for 14 to 17 May at Bothaville in the Free State, with a range of solutions that speak directly to the current needs of the farming community.
“We will be displaying new forklifts as well as our pre-owned units, and these units can be sold directly from the stand and be delivered after the show, to accommodate farmers who have immediate needs of the units,” says Werner Stegmann, Regional Sales Manager at GLTC.
This year’s NAMPO comes at a time when the farming community is seemingly battling several challenges. Remaining profitable in the face of an array of challenges, including climate change and the resultant droughts and poor yields, is a major of priority for farmers.
“We offer the lowest cost of ownership to our end users, working together with our clients to find the best solutions for their material handling requirements,” says Stegmann. “All our units on display come with oil-cooled brakes, which are virtually maintenance-free up to 12 000 hours.”
To help farmers maximise their uptime, GLTC also has technical teams strategically placed across South Africa to be able to service and look after clients – whether they are in the city or out in the greater farming communities. “Our units are tried and tested in the South African market. We have numerous blue-chip companies that trust us with their material handling requirements,” says Stegmann.
“The units we will display this year are focused on normal day-to-day forklift requirements. We can, however, offer tailor-made solutions, should your application need a more specialised piece of equipment. We will come out to wherever customers are based in South Africa to do a site evaluation and do specific recommendations on their requirements – whether for a specific forklift or any warehousing equipment,” adds Stegmann.
By virtue of being part of the Goscor Group of Companies, Stegmann says GLTC can offer a “one stop shop” to its clients. “We offer many solutions to our end user from under one roof – forklifts, cleaning equipment, generators and earthmoving equipment, just to name a few. We aim to ensure that farmers/business owners find it easy to deal with us in order to make their lives and businesses better,” concludes Stegmann.
