Zerma opens Africa office in JHB
AFTER A NUMBER OF YEARS of solid growth in the Southern African market, Zerma has furthered its commitment to the continent with the opening of its own office, Zerma Africa, in Johannesburg.
Zerma Africa specialises in the supply and service of Zerma size reduction machinery throughout Africa. After 12 years with Maritime Marketing, Jeff Cawcutt takes up the challenge of growing the Zerma brand in South Africa, our northern neighbours and further afield. As product manager for Zerma for the past fi ve years, Jeff is passionate about the product and the company, and for good reason, he says: “If you were to list the critical factors in purchasing a granulator or shredder, Zerma ticks every box: proven machine design, customization for special applications, reliability and extremely robust construction, German-owned and run with fi rst-hand recycling experience, local and international references, economies of scale, stock machines or short lead times, local after sales support and spare parts, and very competitively priced.”
The Zerma range of equipment includes the full spectrum of granulators, from small 4kW slow-speed beside-the- press units to heavy-duty granulators up to 2400mm wide for high-capacity applications, single-shaft and hybrid shredders catering for virtually any application, and specialized machines such as pulverisers and hammer- mills. This is complimented by a comprehensive range of optional accessories such as conveyors, sound- proofing, blowing systems, metal and dust separation, size classifi cation and a variety of wear resistant packages.
Customization and attention to detail has been a hallmark of Zerma’s philosophy of satisfying customer’s specific requirements. Today Zerma is the world’s largest manufacture of granulators and shredders for the plastics industry.
