Uitenhage, South Africa: Aggreko, the world leader in the provision of rental power and temperature control services, has ensured that a Uitenhage-based electrical manufacturing company was able to maintain production despite a two-day power cut.
Kromberg & Schubert, a manufacturer of automotive wiring harnesses, was faced with the possibility of being unable to meet pressing deadlines for major clients when the local substation lost power for two days. With deadlines for major clients imminent, the interruption to its production line threatened both earnings and important business relationships.
A referral from another of Aggreko’s customers ensured that Kromberg & Schubert were not left in the dark for long. Aggreko was contracted to provide an emergency 500 kVA generator, which was installed within a matter of hours.
Marius van As, Maintenance Manager, Kromberg & Schubert, said: “The service we received from Aggreko was exceptional; their only priority was to get us up and running again. The team were extremely knowledgeable and flexible, even installing the package after working hours.”
Martin Foster, Country Manager, Aggreko South Africa, commented: “This is an excellent example of Aggreko’s ability to provide rental power as and when it is needed. The team’s experience in working with clients who often need a small power package in place immediately, has ensured that we have been able to deliver to Kromberg & Schubert exactly what they needed, despite the tight deadline.”
