Our wide sourcing network allows us to supply a non-exhaustive range of commodities including sugar, coffee, maize, cement, coil, wool, cotton, and so on.

 

We have come to understand that within the same industry, each client is different and has specific needs. As a result, part of our service consists in assessing these needs in order to fit industrial kitchen and laundries with the very best equipment. Furthermore, we do offer complete turnkey project solutions, i.e. from the design to the installation, commissioning and training of such projects.

Laundry Equipment

We supply an exclusive range of high-quality equipment to institutions, commercial laundries, dry cleaners, hotels, etc. Such equipment covers all the processes involved in the cleaning of fabrics, namely:

Since 2009, we have set up a dedicated workshop to repair and maintain our industrial batteries.

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, pipe 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 why we offer a wide range of lubrication systems as well as oil, grease, bearings, chains and gearboxes, amongst others.

Conveyor Belts

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

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.

We print self-adhesive labels, films and shrink sleeves for a wide range of consumer products.

Adhesive labels are widely used in the manufacturing sector for their packaging needs and can be applied on a variety of surfaces from textiles to plastic, metal or glass. Labels generally inform the user about the brand, product specification, composition, expiry dates, instructions, etc.

We supply adhesive labels for a variety of products such as food and beverages, cosmetics, household cleaners, thermal labels for cool and cold cabinet products and brands.

Shrink sleeve labels are sleeves constructed from film material that shrinks to a product’s surface upon heat application. This type of labelling allows the graphics to be printed around the entire circumference, as well as to take the shape of the product container. The eye-catching design of 360° graphics of form-fit containers has great consumer appeal.

Shrink sleeves provide many advantages such as:

  • Cost-effective product labelling and decoration
  • High-end look and feel that adds value to the product with an eye-catching design
  • Labelling and decorating on complex shaped containers is made possible
  • They provide freshness and safety seals

Many industries are rapidly adopting the 360° graphics that custom shrink sleeve labels provide. Extremely popular in food and beverage products, printed shrink sleeves can also be used to decorate personal care and cosmetic products, pharmaceuticals, retail products, and many more.

We also print films which are mainly used in the food and beverage industry for packaging needs, more particularly on bottles or for crisps bags.

The growing importance of Telecommunication and Business Process Outsourcing in the Mauritian economy has led us into this field. We are specialised in customising IP-based telephone systems and call centre software for companies, industries as well as call centres. We also supply videoconferencing solutions. As part of our service, we can provide assistance in terms of network design and configuration, as well as network audits and assessments.

Offering a top-of-the-range service to our clients being one of our key concerns, 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 highlyqualified technicians who ensure inspections and surveys, preventive maintenance, workshop or field service repairs of the equipment that we deliver to our clients, whether individuals or organisations.

We have also set up a facility management unit for air conditioning, water and fire-fighting systems.
