HFT takes on Fleetguard
Cummins Filtration and Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT) have teamed up to bring more convenience to customers.
As part of a recent distribution agreement, HFT has been appointed Super Dealer for Cummins Filtration’s range of Fleetguard engine protection products for southern Africa. It will market and distribute the entire Fleetguard range, including NanoNet – a recently engineered synthetic fuel filter media designed to extend engine life.
“Fleetguard is ranked as the top two global brands in the international filtration market,” points out HFT general manager Sandor Bottyan. “Cummins Filtration’s manufacturing investment in South Africa, along with its technical skills and stockholding, means our collaboration is mutually beneficial.”
Coinciding with this collaboration was the recent opening of the company’s new filtration and coolant manufacturing plant at its regional distribution centre for southern Africa, in Woodmead, Johannesburg.
The premises incorporate Cummins Filtration’s component warehousing and local manufacturing facility, which produces Fleetguard fuel and air filters and Fleetguard Organic Acid Technology (OAT) engine coolant.
Representatives of both companies cite African expansion as one of the drivers of the collaboration. HSA has comprehensive distribution and operation centres in Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
