Marthinusen & Coutts consolidates its presence
October 2017, News
Marthinusen & Coutts is consolidating its role as an integrated electrical and mechanical services provider across Africa and internationally. The division offers the full range of maintenance, repair and special manufacturing services of electric motors, generators, turbo machinery and other high speed mechanical rotating equipment.
Divisional CEO, Richard Botton says both Marthinusen & Coutts and subsidiary, Actom Turbo Machines have a long and proud history of serving customers on the continent. He ascribes the ongoing success to a combination of diligent planning, a culture of problem solving and providing innovative solutions; a sense of urgency; industry-leading skills; and having the necessary infrastructure and resources in place. Marthinusen & Coutts is unique in that it is the only independently owned service provider that is capable of providing extensive maintenance, repair and special manufacturing solutions for all electrical and mechanical rotating machinery.
“A critical factor is that Marthinusen & Coutts has been involved in Africa for more than a decade, and has a sound knowledge of what it takes to deliver a quality solution to our customers in the countries in which we operate,” Botton says. “It is our in-depth understanding of African conditions that allows our teams to get there, make a plan, manage and execute projects; and that is on an ongoing basis with numerous repeat customers.”
The key differentiator for Marthinusen & Coutts is its rapid response time, inherent sense of urgency, culture of dedicated customer service and ability to mobilise quickly and efficiently in tackling critical projects. In addition, all Marthinusen & Coutts branches have direct access to the Centre of Excellence in Johannesburg. Critical equipment at this facility includes a 32 ton balancing machine, extensive testing capabilities and a fully equipped machine shop including CNC machines. “What gives us the leading edge in terms of these African contracts is that we can leverage the other divisions within the Actom Group to provide us with additional manufacturing capability, products and expertise,” he concludes.
