BMG has extended its integrated engineering solutions services in Zambia to include the supply and support of a comprehensive range of personal protection equipment (PPE) and advanced welding systems, designed to create a healthy, clean and safe environment.
“BMG is committed to assisting businesses in Zambia improve safety in the workplace by ensuring easy access to a broad range of quality branded PPE, which is suitable for use in many sectors, including mining, agriculture, manufacturing and packaging, food and beverage plants, milling and general industry,” says Brendan Kitcat, BMG’s Lusaka Branch Manager, Zambia. “BMG also offers an extensive range of welding products and systems, designed to protect workers’ health during metal working procedures, through the extraction and control of welding fumes.
“Our welding products and services are tailored to meet specific customer requirements and include carefully-selected fume extraction products that reduce risks associated with welding and cutting fumes, grinding dust and oil mist.
“We work closely with every customer to ensure the selection of the correct equipment and appropriate and safe use of each system.”
BMG’s portfolio of safety and PPE comprises complete head-to-toe solutions, including hard hats, helmets, bump caps, earplugs and earmuffs, goggles and spectacles. The range also includes general, flame and acid-proof worksuits, as well as gloves, safety shoes and gumboots.
The company’s welding related products encompass source extraction, PPE, general filtration and extraction hoods and a wide range of inverter welders, electrodes, welding wire and accessories.
BMG’s comprehensive product range also includes bearings, seals and gaskets; power transmission; hydraulics and pneumatics; fluid technology and filtration; drives, motors and controllers; materials handling; fasteners and tools.
BMG’s two branches in Zambia – in Lusaka and on the Copperbelt in Kitwe – offer a 24/7 support service for the full product range, through technically competent workshops and field service teams. Services include mobile breakdown, repair and maintenance support, to ensure production plants are up and running as quickly as possible following a breakdown.
According to BMG specialists, the introduction of a structured maintenance management programme – which can be implemented in-house, or partially out-sourced to a professional organisation – is critical to maximising production efficiencies.
Conditioning monitoring identifies lubrication problems, misalignment and vibration troubles and also helps in identifying the causes of the damage, so that equipment can be fixed before further damage occurs. This means reduced downtime, efficient production and substantial cost savings.
The BMG branch in Lusaka has recently completed a new showroom that effectively displays the company’s extensive product range.
