The supply of industrial equipment coupled with all the other services that our Group offers to the various industries in which we are involved was a coherent and logical step forward in our expansion process.

Material Handling and Warehousing Equipment

With only the storage capacity as input, we can design an entire warehousing facility while supplying and installing all the racking, shelving, lift trucks, cranes and good lifts needed to operate the said facility both efficiently and effectively.

Steam and Energy Equipment

Steam has numerous applications, including textile manufacturing, sugar manufacturing, food processing, power generation, steam cleaning, laboratories and, more generally speaking, process steam. We supply the most appropriate solutions to meet industry-specific needs in terms of steam and energy conservation products such as boilers, burners, burner management systems, steam and condensate equipment, pipes and insulation.

Fluids Management

We offer products for fluid handling, storage, and conditioning such as pumps, tanks, pipes and pipelines, air compressors, centrifugals and heat exchangers.

Lubrications Solutions

Lubrication-related problems are the cause of nearly 70% of equipment failures, resulting in downtime, cost overruns, lost productivity and abnormal tear and wear of industrial equipment. This is the reason for which we offer a wide range of lubrication systems as well as oil, grease, bearings, chains and gearboxes, amongst others.

Conveyor Belts

We can deliver to your organisation custom-made or stock conveyor belts and accessories, ranging from a vast array of agricultural and food processing applications to mining and printing.

Instrumentation

To efficiently run any process, it is vital to measure, record and control various process parameters including temperature, pressure, levels and flow. With many years of experience in the instrumentation field, we define the best solution for each specific industrial application.

Parts and Supplies

We also manufacture a wide range of industrial supplies in engineering plastics such as polypropylene, polyurethane, food grade plastics as well as joints, gaskets, guides, oil seals, hydraulic packings, scrappers, wheels, bushings, rollers, etc.

For the past 20 years, one of our South African subsidiaries, N. Bellstedt & Co. (Pty) Ltd, an approved BBBEE company, has been a reliable supplier of laboratory equipment and reagents, lifting and rigging products, mining hoses, steel wires, etc. to the South African mining industry as well as to several mines throughout the Sub-Saharan region.

Over the years, we have developed considerable experience and expertise with regards to designing, process piping, steam piping, storage tanks and support structures.

For instance in the construction industry, our expertise in structural engineering and steel construction allows us to provide very efficient designs for portal frames. Wherever clear open spaces are required, our design office is well geared to offer competitive solutions. Typical applications are warehouses, which are needed in every industry. We also offer design services for multi-storey, steel and composite construction for various applications, including industrial, commercial and residential.

We are very active in the manufacturing sector and recently designed and built a number of steel structures for a stone crushing and screening plant. Our consultancy services have also been sought by a solid waste processing plant to improve their operations and expand their handling capacity, as well as to resolve air pollution issues related to their compost filtering facility. Furthermore we have been conducting a study to improve material handling, bagging and storing facilities at a flour factory. We are currently working with a civil contractor to find the safest and most economical way of dismantling an old rail bridge spanning over a 100m deep ravine.

We have been present on the Mauritian market for more than 20 years in this particular field and our rich experience and partnerships with world-renowned brands enable us to offer tailor-made air-conditioning and ventilation solutions. Our range of services comprises design, supply, setting-up and commissioning of such installations.

We are capable of offering the most appropriate solutions, ranging from direct expansion to chilled water systems, for medium and large scale air-conditioning applications. Our experienced engineering teams understand the intricacies and dynamics of the various industries and ensure that the set requirements are well understood prior to executing the design/installation. We also offer precision cooling solutions mainly for server rooms and data centres. Moreover, we are intensively involved in extraction systems, fresh air supply systems and pressurisation systems, as required in most buildings.

We are currently putting major emphasis on energy savings for airconditioning applications and we are able to propose combined direct expansion and chilled water cooling solutions for precision cooling applications.

Process control and automation aim at improving the overall profitability of production processes by enhancing their efficiency and decreasing their relative operational costs. This is achieved though the integration of various equipment, services and systems. The automation of a manufacturing plant will digitally control all the variable process parameters such as temperature, pressure, level, flows, etc. As a result, it will provide better decision support, downtime analysis and drastically reduce human errors while increasing safety in the plant.

Offering a top-of-the-range service to our clients is one of our key concerns and we have decided to set up a service centre equipped with a comprehensive range of service tools and equipment. Our service team employs 70 motivated people including engineers and highly-qualified technicians who ensure inspections and surveys, preventive maintenance, workshop or field service repairs of the equipment that we would have delivered to our clients, whether individuals or organisations.
