Crushtec Chronicle – Pilot Talk

We have once again reached the end of another year and frankly, what a year it has been. A long time, Zimbabwe based customer Nick, said to me “well what did you expect, it is 2014 and the end of the second 7 year cycle of this millennium” Well I am certainly hoping that he is right and that 2015, being the start of the third 7 year cycle, will be an awesome one.

We are only now getting over the effects of the engineering industry strike as suppliers start making up the lost time. This strike affected the engineering industry gravely and whilst I am sure the unions achieved most of their objectives, the cost to the industry is enormous. At least one of our suppliers closed down as a result of this and I know that many others have had a very tough year.

The last few weeks have seen a flurry of activity and I hope that it is a sign of things to come in the New Year rather than just a last minute catch-up.

This year has seen several notable achievements including the launch of our Pilot Premio Loyalty Programme, which has already provided customers with benefits in excess of R200 000 in its first month of operation. We urge all our South African based (in the meanwhile) customers to register for this. Another major achievement is the sale and installation of the first UH450E sold outside Scandinavia. Early indications confirm that this machine is going to “kick butt”.

We have some important new product launches early next year, which will entrench our standing as Africa’s best supplier of mobile and semi-mobile crushing and screening equipment.

We wish to thank all of our customers for their continued support during2014 and we look forward to impressing you next year.

Thank you too, to all our staff, partners and suppliers and all other stakeholders in our business.

We wish you all wonderful, relaxing, safe and healthy holidays.
