BMG NAMPO 2022 Smart Farming High Efficiencies
The Nampo show – which is the largest agricultural expo held in South Africa every year – is always an important event for BMG’s agricultural team. Both BMG’s stands at Nampo 2022 focused on the convenience and efficiency of the BMG online shopping platform, which was launched two years ago and is continually advanced for improved accessibility to engineering and agricultural components.
“Nampo was the perfect forum to showcase the convenience for farmers of being able to procure products they need electronically, from the comfort of their own homes. BMG’s user-friendly digital shopping platform has been designed to boost the buying experience for our customers and feedback during the Covid-19 pandemic indicates a preference for online procurement, rather than face-to-face shopping,” explains Carlo Beukes, BMG’s agricultural manager. “BMG’s online 24-hour online shopping facility is safe and easy to navigate and allows farmers to browse the site, select the products they want and then click and collect from the nearest branch or through swift nationwide delivery.
“Although this digital platform offers farmers new opportunities for doing business, online shopping is merely another channel and does not detract from the technical support and personal care that the BMG teams are well known for. This facility adds value to our service offering and makes shopping for engineering components even more convenient for the agricultural community.”
Over 75 000 BMG products are available on this platform, including bearings, seals, fasteners and power transmission components, as well hand and power tools, abrasives, brushware, spanners, wrenches and sockets. Added to this are agricultural-specific components, including PTO shafts.
Nampo 2022 was also the perfect opportunity for the agricultural team to emphasise the importance of BMG’s Boer Slim/Smart Farming. This programme highlights the significance of the investment in quality equipment and replacement parts, rather than ‘inferior components, to achieve high efficiencies and optimum productivity in all sectors of agriculture.
Through Boer Slim/Smart Farming, BMG assists farmers to embrace advancements in agricultural machinery. Farming-sustainability solutions focus on effective food production, the correct use of suitable equipment for specific tasks and the efficient application of the latest technologies.
BMG launches new products continually, to keep abreast with advanced global agricultural trends and to ensure the local market has access to the latest equipment. New to the range are BTC Lemken harrow discs and hub bearing units, that conform with OEM quality specifications. The company has also launched the Liqui Moly Guntec range, bakkie oil and fuel additives, as well as new solar panel operated Variable Speed Drive (VSD) units that will be on display.
On display was a wide range of BMG’s agricultural products, including bearings and seals, power transmission components, light industry conveyors, tools and fasteners, hydraulics and fluid technology, as well as all electronics equipment.
What was new for BMG at Nampo this year, was an outside stand where working demonstrations displays took place. Product specialists focused on interacting with end-users, displaying the company’s product portfolio and engineering capabilities. There were also active conveyor systems in operation, which have been specifically designed for fruit packhouses.
