© Reuse this Local importer and distributor of Gison pneumatic tools Reef Pneumatics & Industrial Supplies is aiming to expand its imports to meet the growing demand of its client base.

The company supplies impact wrenches and heavy-duty rock breakers to various platinum mines, including Impala Plati- num, Anglo Platinum and other mining companies.



The company, which was established in 1989 and is based in Germiston, operates out of a 10 000-m2 office and is a subsidiary of Reef Trenchless Technologies South Africa, which is the sole distributor in South Africa for trenchless equipment. Trenchless equipment refers to equipment which makes the digging of trenches unnecessary in order to fit especially pipes in the road construction field. Reef Pneumatics distributes this equipment, which includes the Grundomat soil displacement hammer, the Grundoram, which is used for pipe ramming under roads during construction, the Grundoburst, which is used during the renewal and replacement process of sewerage pipes, and also various other horizontal directional drilling machines, all of which have been imported since 1998.



Reef Pneumatics employs 14 workers and has been importing pneumatic equipment since 1990, keeping a well-stocked warehouse to have parts and equipment at hand when required by a client. The company is also a wholesaler of pneumatic tools and equipment to various industrial manufacturers, government departments as well as to the auto-mobile industry.



The company also exports a wide range of pneumatic equipment to various African countries. These include Botswana, Zambia, Ghana and Zimbabwe. The company is heavily involved in Anglo Platinum Mines’ latest developments. In addition, Reef Pneumatics has the capabilities of custom-building pneumatic products to a customer’s design, Reef Pneumatics director Chris Ehlers says. In this way, Reef Pneumatics aims to expand its importing base to better fulfil its customers’ needs.
