Celebrating 90 years of Business in SA

BMG which acquired FPT Distribution SA (Fenner Power Transmission) over 20 years ago celebrated Fenner’s 90th year of business in South Africa last year.

“The BMG team is proud to be the exclusive distributors of Fenner products, which have been manufactured in South Africa for longer than any other power transmission brand,” says Carlo Beukes, business unit manager, Power Transmission, BMG. Fenner, which was established in England in 1861, remains the premium brand in power transmission that generations of professional engineers have depended on and trusted.

Because standardisation and spares holding costs are a high priority for most production operations, Fenner applies a policy of low-frequency product changes throughout its portfolio, with design improvements implemented only where these will offer significant customer benefits.

BMG’s Fenner range which consists of transmission and drive chains, vee and wedge belts, tyre and grid couplings, timing belts, sprockets and pulleys and shaft mounted speed reducers enables BMG to work with all sectors of industry.

The company also services the industrial and mining replacement and re-sale markets and is a supplier to original equipment manufacturers.

A strategic decision was made by BMG earlier last year to expand the portfolio, with the addition of Fenner conveyor belting products making it the exclusive distributor of Fenner conveyor belting products locally and in sub-Saharan Africa.

Fenner conveyor belting products, which include steel cord and solid woven conveyor belting, are manufactured at the Isando plant, according to stringent international quality standards.
