Zest WEG Group first established a small office in Cape Town 20 years ago to cater for local customers who require fast turnaround times on the supply of electric motors. Today, this thriving business provides the entire Western Cape with a range of quality electric motors, variable speed drives (VSDs), soft starters, switchgear, standby generators, transformers and access to renewable energy equipment, all under the respected WEG brand.
Situated in the Montague Gardens, Zest WEG Group’s Cape Town branch operations include offices, a CETA-accredited training facility, workshops and a warehouse. Manager, Marthinus Greeff joined the branch 10 months ago after having spent several years with the group in Johannesburg. He explains that Zest WEG Group Cape Town’s success is based on a number of critical factors.
“Our experienced and technically competent team, led by Hendrik Britz, boasts a number of people who have been with us for many years. Longevity of service provides customers with a feeling of security, and this is just as important as the fact that the WEG product offerings offer consistent quality and reliability,” says Greeff.
The Zest WEG Group Cape Town team has developed a reputation for going beyond the call of duty and Greeff is ably assisted by electric motor sales manager Leonard Smith and drives and automation sales manager Jeff Smith in delivering unquestionable service to the industry. “Our technical service team is on call 24/7 and this ability to expedite maintenance and technical issues places us on an extremely good footing with our diverse customer base,” explains Greeff.
The sales team is supported by dedicated technicians operating out of a fully equipped workshop capable of undertaking repairs to VSDs, including a test bay for load testing of the drives. All technical personnel receive extensive training both at WEG in Brazil and locally under the supervision of Zest WEG Group’s training office in Johannesburg.
Zest WEG Group Cape Town boasts its own comprehensive training facility with five custom-built benches and this allows the branch to provide customers with complimentary training on WEG’s range of electric motors, VSDs, soft starters and switchgear. Greeff explains that all the training courses are certified by CETA.
