The world revolves around supply and demand, with that comes the need for machinery to manufacture the goods that has to be supplied on demand. Is it not ironic that maintenance of these crucial machines is mostly on the bottom of the “TO DO “list? But when the cogs and wheels grind to a halt and the life supply of the business is shut off, then immediately breakdown repairs must be done to nurse it back to life.
We buy a vehicle and we are dependent on it to get us to work and back home, we service it regularly, check oil and water often to make sure it is at the right level, because we can not afford not to be mobile , yet we often neglect the one thing that is giving us a purpose to get up every day, that is our life line and keeps the wheels turning.
ARGON FERROTEC(pty)ltd was founded in early 2017 to fill a gap in the industry with a market leading concept in machine and factory maintenance.
The Director, Johan Grabe has 7 years' experience in maintenance, design, building and steel work. He is also the founder of ARGON FERROTEC. Going through the ranks and honing he's trade while working for companies like, NETT ENERGY and AFRICA ROLL FORMING among others, he became aware of the need for a specialized maintenance concept. Many companies place maintenance on the bottom of the list due to the high cost involved to have a maintenance team consisting of millwright's, electricians, machinists, engineers, boilermakers and so on. These disciplines have their roll in machine maintenance but they apply their skill and knowledge for a partial time and are a great expense on the payroll. ARGON FERROTEC eliminates or greatly reduce the need for this as we have access to a wide range of professional and highly skilled people who are experts in their fields, thus eliminating the need for a dedicated team as we are but a phone call away.
ARGON FERROTEC is dedicated to:
ARGON FERROTEC DESIGN Having been in the industry for a long time and holding a Higher diploma in mechanical engineering (NQF7), Johan and he's team are well placed to do alterations, modifications, automations and draugting on mechanical machines. Sometimes a small alteration can greatly improve production, increase revenue and often exceeds the cost of the alteration after the first few months adding to the bottom line. We also design new machines or addition to existing machines to assist in production.
