Throughout the world, no matter where you go, there is an industry that strives to fulfil the one basic need that unites every living creature.
That need is sustenance and the industry is agriculture. It is in this industry that Mascor has its roots firmly planted and, as this industry is known for hard work, solving of challenges and working with all the variables nature has to offer, Mascor has adopted a unique way of incorporating these principles in the way we do business.
Mascor is now one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of Agricultural, Construction and Forestry equipment.
It all started in 1967 in a town called Kranskop when a small parts- and service-centre was started by three partners. Mechanised Agricultural Supplies (MAS) was founded and, in 1968, became the John Deere dealer for the Greytown region. The company relocated to Greytown and the first steps were taken in building the company that Mascor is today.
Through organic growth and strategic acquisitions, MAS expanded rapidly and, in 1991, Pannar Seed bought the controlling shares in MAS and the name was changed to Mascor.
Further growth over the years has seen Mascor become the largest supplier of agricultural equipment in KZN and the third biggest John Deere dealer in Africa.
More recently, Mascor acquired the John Deere franchise for Uganda and Kenya in East Africa. Operations started in Uganda in October 2014, and in Kenya in May 2015. This marked the first official business for Mascor outside of South Africa.
We employ more than 440 staff members and believe in the power of positive people. The company is a proud member of the Plennegy Group. With our feet planted firmly on the ground, Mascor continually strives to add value to the business of our customers and live true to our slogan of Operational Excellence
At Mascor, we believe in providing you with the best John Deere equipment tailored to your industry and to your exact requirements.
Mascor is proud to announce that we have been appointed as the official distributor of John Deere’s Construction, Forestry and Waratah ranges of equipment.
This will enable us to offer the broadest range of equipment in our industry to both existing customers, as well as to extend our products and services into the mining, construction and forestry markets.
Our extensive branch network, extending throughout KwaZulu-Natal, and as far as Mpumalanga Lowveld, Kenya and Uganda, means we are able to provide accessible service to you. Our experience in Precision Technology Solutions will form an integral part of our differentiated value-proposition - providing improved efficiencies and visibility of production, together with remote management and pre-emptive machine alerts.
Whether you use our equipment every day or you’ve never set foot in it, everyone sees their reflection in a freshly waxed Deere. Whether your John Deere moves timber or rubble, it carries the weight of legend. We innovate on behalf of our customers because what we learn is not a by-product of what we do. It’s the fuel that powers what we can do better.
Call us today. We look forward to the opportunity to make a difference to your operation!
