Service and repairs

The Group’s various ISO-accredited workshops and testing procedures ensure our service and repair offering is always OEM-compliant. Understanding the importance of operational uptime, the Group offers a Service Exchange Programme for cylinders, motors and pumps where we provide our customers with a service exchange replacement unit while we repair the original to its OEM specification.

Bosch Rexroth South Africa has invested in various state-of-the-art machines, from cylinder and servo test benches to a Bosch Rexroth globally standardising test control system, to ensure products are serviced and repaired to OEM-specification.
