We at Bearings 2000 understand the importance of training and up-skilling our customer base and staff in order to live by our customer pledge of ‘simplifying the supply of industrial supply products’. Although a customer training service has always been informally available, we have now launched a state-of-the-art training facility at our Head Office in Johannesburg with a wide range of courses available.
The more our customers know more about the product they are buying, the more inclined they will be to order the correct product the first time, thereby resulting in faster turnaround times and reduced down-time. What’s more, the correct handling, mounting and maintenance of bearings will result in longer and more consistent life spans, in addition to improved stock and spares planning.
