Hytec is the largest total hydraulics solutions company in Southern Africa, supplying components and systems to industrial and mobile equipment regardless of machine size and scale.
Hytec provides complete hydraulic solutions, from planning and design, manufacture and assembly, testing, installation and commissioning in addition to full service and repair capabilities. Hytec’s 50-year hydraulic expertise is sought by companies with large and sophisticated requirements.
In 2009, Hytec was awarded the stringent Bosch Rexroth Certified Service Centre of Competency accreditation (CSC-C) for the servicing of mobile and industrial hydraulic systems and components at its Johannesburg-based facility.
This Hytec facility was recertified in 2014 following the mandatory 5 year re-auditing period. Hytec remains the only company outside of Bosch Rexroth to have received this accreditation, and is the only Bosch Rexroth-certified facility in Africa.
Hytec is involved in every major industry in Southern and sub-Saharan Africa. We support these industries with the world’s leading hydraulic brands with at-the-mine services. These industry sectors include:
Hytec has introduced a service exchange programme to ensure faster turnaround times on pump, gear and motor repairs, benefiting both production efficiencies and the customer’s bottom line.
The service exchange programme is a component replacement system that supplies refurbished units with a one-year warranty. Returned equipment is refurbished to factory specification, while repair and service costs are well-priced and easily predicted. With this programme, machine downtime is kept to the minimum with selected immediately-available and directly off the shelf pump units.
Hytec offers original OEMs total peace of mind with a mobile gearbox repair facility that is guaranteed to comply with strict manufacturer standards. Hytec offers the repair facility to customers as part of our commitment to quality service.
Hytec remanufactures the gearbox completely, no chroming or welding of old parts are done. In addition, Hytec strictly inspects all parts for hairline cracks.
These repairs can be carried out either on-site, especially in the case of very large or heavy gearboxes, or at Hytec’s 400 m² facility in Johannesburg.
Hytec offers a one-year guarantee on all repairs undertaken. In addition, Hytec documents all repairs for future reference and also provides feedback to gearbox manufacturers for improvement of their products.
Hytec’s hydraulic component testing recently underwent a R1-million upgrade with Bosch Rexroth’s globally standardised test control system. The new system will ensure Hytec’s hydraulic component tests are carried out in accordance with specified procedures.
