ZLT Tower Cranes has been appointed as the official agent representing Raimondi Cranes across eight African countries. Effective immediately, ZLT Cranes will act as the sole Raimondi dealer across South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia, Mauritius, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, offering the manufacturer’s luffing and topless tower cranes as well as its crane accessories.

ZLT Cranes, part of a collective of companies that draws on more than 35 years of experience in the heavy machinery segment and various other construction sectors including mining, will also be providing after sales care and service and maintenance programmes.

“ZLT Cranes is dynamic company with considerable market knowledge. This is paired with experience in selling lifting products to a wide range of clients for a variety of purposes, from residential developments to infrastructure projects to the mining industry. Our initial discussions quickly indicated that the company’s on-the-ground experience together with a demonstrated history of success in the regional construction sector would prove valuable as a partnership,” says Mauro Masetti, Chief Commercial Officer of Raimondi Cranes.

“ZLT is proud to inaugurate our agency appointment with our first sale of a Raimondi MRT159 topless tower crane to one of South Africa’s most notable gold producers. Harmony Gold will be using the MRT159 at the Great Noligwa Gold Mine at Vaal Reef, situated in the northwestern region of South Africa,” adds Rob Cook, Director of ZLT Tower Cranes.

“Since 2006, I have been involved in the sale of over 290 mobile and crawler cranes in South Africa and other African countries. Based on my years in the regional marketplace, I anticipate that Raimondi will be very warmly welcomed due the quality and durability of its machinery range.”

Cook believes that the Raimondi MRT159s in eight and 10 tonne options will be appreiated across the  territories it operates in. A combination of factors including the competitive pricing strategy and the varied tower and jib configurations make this machine extremely suitable for many of the region’s biggest operations and jobsites, he says.

“During my visit to Raimondi’s headquarters and factory, I was very impressed with the Raimondi team, the technology, the manufacturing process, and the ability of its design engineers to customize a crane to a specific jobsite. ZLT Cranes will be proudly promoting the Raimondi value proposition as we guarantee a supply of products for clients that are of the highest quality and that deliver exceptional results.”
