Hyflo Southern Africa incorporated into BMG’s Fluid Technology division

June 2019 News

The Engineering Solutions Group (ESG) of Invicta Holdings has incorporated Hyflo Southern Africa into BMG’s Fluid Technology Division. This development is a positive move for both companies and for the local fluid power sector, which will benefit from the combined services of two streamlined organisations.

“As part of this restructure programme, all Hyflo’s customer and supplier trading activities will be integrated into BMG, yet Hyflo will retain its brand presence in the market,” says Wayne Holton, business unit manager, Fluid Technology Division, BMG. “The Hyflo team is excited to be part of BMG. We are confident that with access to BMG’s central support functions, including engineering, technical expertise and manufacturing skills, we can further improve service levels to our loyal customer base.

“Apart from new customers and markets which are being leveraged through BMG, we are rolling-out our Hyflo product offering through BMG’s network of 106 branches, thereby enhancing sales and creating new opportunities for both companies.”

Hyflo’s operations in Bloemfontein, Cape Town and Vredenburg will continue to operate from their current locations, but these branches will eventually become BMG Regional Service Centres (RSCs), each with a focus on engineering, sales support and the manufacture and repair of hydraulic systems, pumps, cylinders and associated products.

Hyflo’s Durban, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth branches are being absorbed into BMG’s existing RSCs in these regions.

All Hyflo systems will continue to be manufactured according to stringent quality and safety standards, as required by customers in diverse industries, including mining and quarrying, manufacturing, agriculture, marine and off-shore services, as well as general engineering.

BMG’s fluid technology services – incorporating Hyflo’s products and expertise – encompass project engineering and consulting, cylinder design and manufacture, training, repair and testing, as well as on-site container services. BMG also offers total process and lubrication management solutions throughout the African continent.
