An authorised JCB distributor founded in 2003, South Africa-based Kemach has grown to become an established earthmoving solutions dealer supplying equipment and aftermarket support to the quarrying, mining, construction and plant hire industries, as well as the central government.

Sales, support and service are delivered through Kemach’s presence across the Southern African region, including its national head office in Johannesburg, and branches in eleven locations throughout South Africa. To ensure seamless operations throughout its territory, Kemach Equipment’s network of sales and service dealers is strategically positioned in Windhoek, Nelspruit, Swaziland, Polokwane, Upington, Schweizer Reneke and Vryheid.

The company offers a broad range of earthmoving equipment. Kemach Equipment says the addition of McCloskey crushers, screeners and stackers is a natural extension for the company as it continues to expand its products and services in the mining, aggregates, construction & demolition, recycling and infrastructure markets. In addition to the equipment itself, Kemach distributes a full range of genuine parts, while skilled field service technicians and expert product support engineers ensure that assistance is available at all times.

Les Lothian, chief executive officer of Kemach Equipment commented: “Adding McCloskey to our range of leading brands enhances our ability to satisfy the growing needs of our customers, while also creating the opportunity to strengthen our position of being a total solutions provider to the markets we participate in.”

Toni Laaksonen, senior VP at Canada-based McCloskey International (which is part of the Metso Outotec corporation), said: “Southern Africa is a market with huge potential, particularly in infrastructure development which is a key part of South Africa’s economic response to the coronavirus pandemic. These unprecedented times present some unique situations that we anticipate will contribute to growth in the marketplace."
