In an important development for the industrial equipment sector, 600SA, a division of Eqstra Industrial Equipment (“EIE”), will be the official distributor of Oil&Steel aerial platforms for overhead work in South Africa as from 1 October 2016. The distributorship will expand 600SA’s suite of best-in-class brands for working at height.

Targeting predominantly the municipality and electricity sectors throughout South Africa, 600SA will supply the full range of articulated and telescopic cherry pickers with reaches of 12 m to 62 m being available.

An international company established in Itally in 1995, Oil&Steel have been present in South Africa  for the past few years, but have already supplied well over a 100 units into various councils. This success is due to the quality of the product, providing a lightweight machine with a sturdy, robust design and which is easy to maintain.

600SA will be launching the range to all the major councils, seeing considerable potential from the EThekwini, Tshwane, Ekurhuleni, City of Johannesburg and Cape Town metropolitan municipalities.

In line with its commitment to forming partnerships for life with its client, 600SA will fully support its client base over the complete product lifecyle, including maintenance contracts, operator and maintenance, staff training and spares and aftermarket support.
