Partner versus "just supplier"

Our aim is not to be just a supplier who sells ropes and services against the lowest prices. Our goal is to be a partner to the companies we work with; which means also a high standard commitment in after-market sales.

Following the initial supply and installation of our hoist ropes, we will enter into a relationship with the client whereby the client provides us, on a regular basis, with the hours worked. Based on these hours, we will establish a record triggering a jointly approved inspection visit in order to maintain the highest safety standards for the products installed.

Advice on rope maintenance is an important part of our supply agreement. A regular inspection agreement is recomended to make sure that the hoist ropes are still operationally safe and to maintain the validity of the test certificates. We also offer onsite training of relevant staff.

Umholi is a supply partner of APM Terminals locations:

Based on received information from the various locations, and followed by on site inventory of stock, ropes and rigging in use, a proactive forward JIT delivery and installation program will be established that ties in with schedule crane maintenance periods.

Based on the above, and after having gained full knowledge of each individual terminal, and subject to terms and conditions of the agreement, credit facilities can be agreed upon.

We offer delivery within the Johannesburg area - We operate under a strict Order number basis, to protect the client from unauthorized deliveries.
