International construction equipment manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic has appointed BMI Group as its latest authorised distributor in South Africa to support Chicago Pneumatic in further expanding its growing presence in that country.
BMI has full access to the CP portfolio of handheld pneumatic, hydraulic and petrol-driven tools alongside compaction equipment, rig-mounted attachments, portable compressors, generators and light towers.
“What ultimately made us decide to partner with Chicago Pneumatic is the tried and tested nature of their equipment, which is ruggedly built and ideally suited for use in tough African working conditions,” says David Ireland, managing director of BMI Group.
BMI Group recently took delivery of an order for the first CP1100-21 high pressure, mechanical portable compressor in Africa, which is to be used in a special application on the South African railways.
Founded in 2010, the BMI Group is headquartered in Johannesburg and operates seven sales and services centres located in strategic locations across South Africa.
