SEW-EURODRIVE South Africa is the only company to assembly complete drive units and electronic products locally. This not only gives customers a significant advantage in terms of lead times, but ensures that the products are of the same quality and latest technology as if they had been imported directly from Germany.

SewEurodrive Cape Town is electronics and technology assembly hub for SEW EURODRIVE South Africa2Gearmotors, servo motors, and a range of electronic products are assembled locally at SEW-EURODRIVE Cape Town, which represents the national electronics and technology assembly hub for the company, Branch Manager Jason Jackson reveals. Electronic products assembled in Cape Town include MOVIGEAR® mechatronic drive systems, MOVITRAC® MC07B next-generation frequency inverters, and MOVIDRIVE® B drive inverters.

“This definitely gives us a competitive edge in the local market, as none of our competitors are carrying out local assembly. With an average lead time of four weeks to import a unit from Germany, this represents a massive saving in terms of both time and money,” Jackson comments. While the Cape Town branch is actually smaller than the main Johannesburg facility, it carries a larger stockholding in terms of electronics specifically.

SEW-EURODRIVE South Africa National Sales Manager Norman Maleka explains that local assembly is a strategy embarked upon by the company globally. “Obviously it has taken a while to institute this strategy in South Africa, as we first had to ensure we had both the capability and the demand to justify local assembly. The main benefit for customers is quicker delivery and guaranteed availability, which are critical factors in terms of increased productivity and reduced downtime.”
