Tectra appointed as Accuride distributor in South Africa

Accuride has extended its already comprehensive European network of distributors by appointing Tectra Automation in South Africa.

‘This collaboration adds significantly to Accuride’s capability to sell our extensive range of industrial telescopic and linear slides into new and growing markets’, says Justin Roe, Distribution Sales Manager. ‘We are excited to be working with such a well established and professional company such as Tectra Automation.’

Tectra will now be able to pull products from Accuride’s off-the-shelf slide range housed in its UK warehouse. This will offer Tectra and its customers access to what is thought to be the largest and most varied collection of stocked slides in Europe.

Greg Calder, Tectra's Product Manager for the Linear Motion and Assembly Technologies Division, says, ‘Tectra Automation is an industry leader in linear motion components and systems for the medium to heavy industry markets. Being able to partner with market leaders Accuride, with their range of products we can now offer solutions for light linear industrial applications, thus being able to offer a complete range of linear solutions for all applications.’

Tectra Automation supplies automation solutions, from design through to installation, and caters to all industries from the food and beverage to heavy engineering. A member of the Hytec Group of Companies, Tectra is able to supply the best possible solution from a single source via its wide product range with support from an experienced and professional team.

Established in 1978, Tectra Automation is the sole distributor of Bosch Rexroth automation and pneumatic products in southern Africa and also represents Easy Conveyors and Datasensor in sub Saharan Africa.
