WearCheck Teams Up With Cummins Angola

Angola is the next frontier across which WearCheck is set to expand, when Cummins Angola becomes the first local WearCheck agent, based in Luanda.

Global power leader Cummins recently sent staff from their Angolan branch to WearCheck Pinetown in South Africa to attend a three day oil analysis training course.

The Cummins delegation also met with the WearCheck Pinetown team and toured the laboratory, in preparation for their rôle as agents for the company.

Cummins and WearCheck intersect on many levels as they operate in the same industries, albeit supplying different services. While WearCheck specialises in condition monitoring, Cummins Inc. designs, manufactures, sells and services diesel and alternative-fuelled electrical generator sets and related components.

Cummins Angola will serve as a depot where WearCheck kits can be purchased, and samples can be dropped off. Samples will be sent to a WearCheck laboratory, and diagnosis and results communicated directly with the customers.

Kits are available in both Portuguese and English.

Cummins Angola, set to become WearCheck agents shortly, recently visited WearCheck Pinetown.  Seen in the laboratory are (from left to right) Meshach Govender (lab manager), Ines Miguel, Steven Lumley (WearCheck technical manager) and Madeira Domingos.
