Laura Thompson, the Group Marketing Director of Hi-Force, explains how the show provides a platform for companies to grow: “With Oil & Gas Africa being one of Africa’s leading oil and gas event and attracting professionals from the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, we are looking to build brand awareness by interacting with our existing customer base as well as introducing Hi-Force to new business partners and end users from within South Africa and the sub-Saharan African market.

“As the leading oil & gas show in the sub-Saharan region, Oil & Gas Africa provides an excellent forum for companies and industry professionals to establish partnerships and encourage development of new technologies to support the oil & gas and petrochemical industries in Africa.”

Thompson says the tools can be used across a range of industry sectors including oil and gas, refinery and petrochemical, power generation, mining, railway construction, steel and aluminium plants, aerospace, ship building and ship repair, as well as sugar and paper mills.

Hi-Force South Africa was added to the growing list of regional operations in 2002. The company was setup in Midrand to establish and grow the Hi-Force brand in the South African market and service the needs of the expanding customer base.

As demand continued to increase throughout the South African market as well as neighbouring countries, the need to further expand the premises became increasingly apparent. In 2011, Hi-Force South Africa relocated to a facility twice the size of the previous allowing for increased stock levels as well as a larger and better equipped repair and service centre.

Hi-Force South Africa caters to the demands of the mining, oil & gas, construction and engineering industries throughout sub-Saharan Africa not only through supply of hydraulic tools but also through after sales service and repair, tool rental, testing, calibration and on-site services. Equipped with a competent team of sales engineers and technicians, Hi-Force South Africa has become one of the fastest growing global operations, offering customers decades of experience in hydraulic tools and solutions.
