Senwes Equipment is an agricultural equipment and service business, which offer agri-mechanisation, construction and mining products and implements, maintenance and precision farming solutions to producers and customers alike.

Geographically, Senwes Equipment enjoys a wide footprint across the Free State, North West, Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, and Gauteng. This footprint includes 25 whole goods and spare parts outlets, 16 mechanisation workshops, seven spare parts counters and one used whole goods outlet. 

The Senwes Equipment product and service offering

Senwes Equipment is one of only three John Deere dealers in the Southern African region and has three subsidiaries through which the company expands it product and service offering.

JD Implemente broadens Senwes Equipment’s geographical footprint by providing agri-mechanisation and maintenance solutions in the Western and Eastern Cape. Staalmeester expands Senwes Equipment’s product offering by manufacturing and importing agricultural equipment for small and medium-sized producers whilst Falcon further increases Senwes Equipment’s competitive edge in the agri-sector by manufacturing and distributing tractor-drawn implements and parts to the South African and sub-Saharan agricultural and turf markets.

Senwes Equipment as a John Deere Construction and Forestry dealer

As of late, Senwes Equipment has branched out into the construction and forestry sectors and is a proud agent of the John Deere construction and forestry range. 

These products were previously not available in the Southern Africa region and as such Senwes Equipment, through its strategic alliance with John Deere, is bringing backhoe loaders, wheel graders, excavators, wheel loaders, crawler dozers, articulated dump trucks, skid steers, and road construction equipment to customers.

In terms of forestry equipment, Senwes Equipment’s product offering includes forwarders, tracked feller bunchers, tracked harvesters, wheeled harvesters, skidders, and knuckleboom loaders.

Building forth on exceptional customer support and innovative equipment technologies

According to Ferdie Pieterse, Managing Director for Senwes Equipment, the expansive product offering and John Deere’s brand reputation for quality provides Senwes with the ideal opportunity to not only build forth on performance and exceptional customer support but also on innovative equipment technologies. 

"This co-operation agreement confirms Senwes Equipment's value as an exclusive John Deere agent, and enables us to break new ground, as it were, by enlarging our impact sphere", says Pieterse. 

In support of Senwes Equipment’s pro-active stance to client service, the recently revamped John Deere Call Centre at its head office in Klerksdorp represents a dynamic hub of precision technology and technical expertise. By making use of the opportunities offered by technology to monitor and support precision farming machines remotely, using in-depth data analytics to optimise machine utilisation, and effecting predictive maintenance the team not only helps to reduce machine downtime but also prompts then to take preventative action if need be.

Through the call centre, Senwes Equipment can render even more effective and efficient service to all John Deere clients. The new construction and forestry range is available to all construction and mining groups, current agricultural clients, municipalities, and rural development organisations.
