Yellow Machine Rental supplies Wacker Neuson equipment in Mauritius

Yellow Metal Machine Rental has recently been appointed as an official Wacker Neuson dealer in Mauritius.

The company’s machine rental business was originally opened in Mauritius by MD Dave Alcock in 2018 and the country has since seen consistent growth in the construction industry, primarily fueled by financial services and tourism demand. Alcock explains that he started with four large excavators, purchased from various suppliers. However, these machines were costly to maintain and heavy on fuel, prompting him to seek smaller, premium brand, fuel-efficient equipment to meet the rental requirements of primarily compaction and excavation applications.

He purchased two Wacker Neuson vibrating plates to test the market. “‘The machine is phenomenal and the best we have ever used!’,” was some of the feedback I received, convincing me that a Wacker Neuson dealer partnership was the only way forward,” says Alcock.  

He went on to purchase an additional seven Wacker Neuson machines - a forward-reversible vibrating plate, two RD pedestrian rollers and four rammers, with plans to purchase a 3.5 t mini-excavator from Wacker Neuson soon.

“This is a highly efficient, low fuel consuming, compact and light machine that can be transported on the back of a truck, is easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces and its rubber tracks can cross virtually any terrain without causing damage - a perfect fit for our market,” he notes.

With offices based in the industrial zone of Geoffroy in the Bambous District, Yellow Metal Machine Rental can service customers across the island. The company employs a petrol and diesel engine specialist technician to maintain and service customers' Wacker Neuson equipment.

Alcock says that he plans to assess the feasibility of investing in Wacker Neuson electric products. “With a big environmental drive on the island, there is undoubtedly synergy. My plan is to kit out a container as a charging station with backup batteries which can be conveniently placed on site.”

 “With such immense potential on our doorstep, we will double down to grow the business and build brand trust by generating sales and rentals, delivering on promises, expanding resources, and reinvesting in the company and the island,” affirms Alcock. “The combination of quality Wacker Neuson equipment and the excellent support provided by my dedicated, passionate, and competent team is what ultimately sells machines and that is the success story of Yellow Metal Machine Rental.”

“Sealing this dealership agreement with Yellow Metal Machine Rental is another step on our journey to grow our dealer footprint on the African continent and adjacent islands,” says Wacker Neuson sub-Saharan Africa MD Dennis Vietze.
