Bearings 2000 understands the importance of training and upskilling our customers and staff. It reinforces our customer pledge of ‘simplifying the supply of industrial products’. Although a customer training service has always been available informally, we are excited (and proud) to launch our state-of-the-art training facility at our head office in Johannesburg.
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. This results in faster turnaround times and reduced downtime. In addition, the correct handling, mounting and maintenance of bearings will result in longer and more consistent life spans, as well as improved stock and spares planning.
