As one of South Africa’s leading companies in the deployment of proximity detection systems (PDS) in the mining sector, Booyco Electronics has celebrated another massive landmark: its 5 000th PDS installation.

Getting to this point has taken years of commitment to customers, and a dedication to developing leading edge products that are reliable and fit-for-purpose, according to MD Anton Lourens.

Anton Lourens, MD of Booyco Electronics.

“Our stature in this market is demonstrated by having the most deployments of any original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or supplier, and we are proud to have delivered and installed this latest unit at a coal mine in the Witbank area,” says Lourens. “Since the company was established in 2006, our focus has been on developing top quality products backed up by skilled technicians who are close to customers for rapid response times.”

Booyco Electronics now boasts a wide service infrastructure, located strategically to cover South Africa’s platinum belt, coalfields and gold mining areas, as well as the mining sites in the Northern Cape and in the Richards Bay area.

“This allows us to have well over 100 technicians – well trained, experienced and resourced – to be constantly on the move responding to customer requirements,” he says. “This fully equipped support infrastructure of seven branches, carrying extensive stocks of parts and components, is vital to service our products and customers wherever they are – and now represents a distinct advantage over our competitors who have only recently entered this market.”

He highlights the importance of Booyco Electronics’ proximity to its customer base, which allows regular and detailed interaction to ensure that the performance of its PDS offerings always meets the customers’ expectations and operational demands.

“We value the in-depth engagement with customers as a key input in our product development and evolution,” he says. “Working closely with customers, we are able to ensure our PDS meets all the requirements across a broad spectrum of commodities and different types of mining operations.”
