Since that time a number of demonstrations have been done at JCB exhibitions, which included Nampo Harvest Day and the Senwes Equipment Expo 2017. Antoon Smalberger has been appointed as the new JCB sales manager - Senwes Scenario attended some of the demonstrations on the farms of producers with Antoon.
One of the demonstrations was held at the farm Middelvlei, in the Theunissen area, which belongs to producer Andries Kriek. Andries showed a lot of interest in the JCB Telescopic Handler 53170, which caught his attention at Nampo.
He is one of a number of prospective customers being followed up at the moment. The JCB and Senwes Equipment team attended the demonstration with Matthew Barkas (JCB - Regional Manager Africa), Daniel Erasmus (JCB – Sales Engineer), Antoon Smalberger (JCB - Sales Manager) and Senwes Equipment Marketer, Herman Smalberger.
Barkas demonstrated the finer points of the product to Kriek, and Barkas and Erasmus assisted with technical know-how. Erasmus indicated that they do not only render this service to South Africa - he regularly travels to countries such as Zimbabwe and Zambia, where exhibitions and demonstrations are held at shows and farmer days. They are currently following up in excess of 300 prospective customers and he visits a different agent every day. He mentioned that the demonstrations definitely had an impact and that they were starting to see the results thereof.
Kriek particularly likes the versatility of this specific model and the fact that it has a number of advantages due to the fact that it can carry out a number of tasks. This was the reason why he decided to buy the JCB Telescopic Handler 53170 after the demonstration. He is very satisfied with his acquisition.
Antoon Smalberger confirmed that such visits and demonstrations emphasise the value which JCB and Senwes Equipment offer their customers. Smalberger said that, in addition to the Telescopic Handler, the Frontloader and Mini Excavator are also very popular.
