PAT-Krüger and Briggeman have agreed that the latter can add PAT- Krüger’s range of mobile control and safety systems to its product portfolio. The agreement will benefit both parties as Briggeman operates closely to the ports and terminals and PAT-Krüger’s products are a perfect addition to Briggeman’s product portfolio of Operator/Safety systems.

Johannesburg based company Power Management recently ordered two Merford seat-console combinations to be installed on the shredder plants of the Reclamation Group in Benoni and in Cape Town. Power Management is main contractor for the upgrade of the complete electrical installation. Although the shredder installation will now be fully automated, there will be an operator to visually oversee the process and machinery and override the system when needed. For this, an ergonomically designed seat-console combination was a prerequisite and after some research Power Management decided Merford would be first choice. “The cooperation with Briggeman and Merford has been very positive and last moment changes to the design of the consoles were implemented without problems”, says PJ Fourie from Power Management. “Together with the short delivery time and local support, we can clearly see future cooperation when the Reclamation Group goes ahead with upgrading other shredder plants in the country.”

Due to the time constraint for the delivery of the seat-console combinations, it was decided that Power Management would do the complete wiring of the consoles. However, for the future it is considered to deliver the consoles completely wired from factory.
