Construction equipment company, Hitachi Construction Machinery, has begun the production of remanufactured parts for construction machinery in South Africa. The remanufactured parts will include medium- to large-sized hydraulic excavators and medium-sized wheel loaders.

Involved in parts remanufacturing for mining machinery, Hitachi Construction Machinery indicated in a statement that the company’s operations will be expanded to include construction machinery to strengthen its parts manufacturing business in the southern African region.

“Our customers in South Africa can purchase remanufactured parts with warranty and thus reduce component procurement costs,” stated Hitachi Construction Machinery in its statement, adding, “The supply of remanufactured parts within South Africa shortens lead time to delivery and keeps down transportation costs.”

Hitachi Construction Machinery’s strategy will involve collecting genuine components from machinery in use, which will then be disassembled and repaired, following which, the company will deliver them as remanufactured parts with performance standards equivalent to first-hand components.

With South Africa serving as the largest construction machinery market in the region, Hitachi Construction Machinery has completed the development of parts remanufacturing facilities in the country. The company will provide repair work for hydraulic equipment and components as well as maintenance and servicing of ultra-large hydraulic excavators and dump trucks.

The move comes as a result of the company’s intention to improve jobsite safety, increase productivity and reduce the lifecycle costs for machinery.

Meanwhile, the company went on to state that remanufactured parts will also be supplied to neighboring countries, with Hitachi Construction Machinery’s Zambia branch and international mining equipment supplier, H-E Parts, collaborating to remanufacture parts for mining machinery such as ultra-large hydraulic excavators and dump trucks.
