Austrian Machinery for South Africa

Pioneering a new and better way of doing business: That is the goal of Mfangano Solution, working with municipalities and contractors to deliver the right recycling machinery, at the right price, with the best environmental performance.

“We do not push our equipment onto the market but are, instead, driven by our customers’ needs. I enjoy sitting down with clients to understand their challenges and then assist them to find solutions – that is why we are called Mfangano Solutions,” says managing director James Kamau. Mfangano Solutions is situated in Johannesburg (South Africa) and is an environmental waste management company, supporting the vision of zero waste to landfill by providing a wide range of high-quality recycling machinery that meets Level V US emission limits for superior environmental performance.

Six Crushers for Pikitup

At the beginning of this year, James Kamau, the new Rockster dealer for South Africa sold six impactors R700S to Pikitup, Johannesburg‘s official waste management service provider. Pikitup services the entire 1,625 square kilometers of Johannesburg. They use the Rockster crushers for producing recyclate used in roads construction and other carbon-based materials. Landfills should be minimized; they want to establish processes of recycling and immediate re-use of the final grain on site. Additionally, transport costs and associated pollutants can be reduced. Mfangano and Rockster offer the necessary technology and know-how to reach these targets. “Mfangano has trained Pikitup operators and keeps spare parts available at its premises. These measures prevent avoidable downtime and allow Pikitup to manage our building rubble and green waste more effectively,” says Christa Venter of Pikitup.

The Rockster R700S mobile impact crusher was specially developed for jobsites with limited space, as is typically the case for metropolitan municipalities. “The well definable final grain was another argument for purchasing a Rockster crusher. The hydrostatic drive allows a continuous adjustment of the crusher speed and therefore guarantees an optimal modification of the final product. Furthermore, the hydrostatic drive has no wear compared to usual clutch systems,” James Kamau says.
