Werner Pumps, leading local manufacturer of high-pressure jetting and equipment, has partnered with Hino Pupkewitz, authorised Hino dealer in Namibia, to supply its truck-mounted units (on Hino chassis) to the Namibian market. Heinz Koll, Sales Manager at Hino Pupkewitz, says the company, which is part of Pupkewitz Motor Division is expecting to take delivery of the first truck unit – a combination jetting and vacuum truck – in second half of 2023. Werner Pumps is aiming to complete the build by August and to commission and deliver the truck in September.
“I heard of Werner Pumps through my colleagues at Hino South Africa,” says Koll. “They spoke highly of the company and their quality of manufacturing and aftersales support. George Jolly, Sales Manager at Werner Pumps contacted me and sent me their company profile and products catalogue. When the Municipality of Walvis Bay advertised a tender for a combination vacuum tanker, it was a natural choice to work with Werner Pumps for this bid. The tender has been awarded to Hino Pupkewitz, and the Hino 500 2836 F/C 6×4 Chassis Cab is currently in the workshop at Werner Pumps, busy with fitments.”
Koll says he’s currently canvassing for more business in the sector in Namibia. “I believe there are more opportunities, and the Pupkewitz group of companies has a nationwide footprint and covers diverse sectors of the Namibian economy,” he says.
“We’re excited by the opportunity to partner with Hino Pupkewitz and to be supplying our trucks into the Namibian market,” says Sebastian Werner, MD of Werner Pumps. “The company is well known and has great reach. We look forward to building the relationship and to doing more business together.”
The Werner Pumps combination unit is predominantly used for cleaning and maintaining sewerage lines, but can also be used for other applications, including cleaning up spills, disaster recovery, and pumping slurry, among others.
The company supplies a full range of jetting and pumping equipment, from smaller units mounted on trailers or skids through to a bakkie-mounted rapid response unit and truck-mounted jetting, pumping, combination and recycling combination units. It also carries a full range of accessories and nozzles, and offers rental units and aftersales service and repairs.
