Bobcat South Africa
Bobcat Equipment South Africa (Pty) Ltd, part of the Goscor Group of Companies, came into being in 2006 when Consolidated Rock Machinery (CRM) took the strategic decision to direct all their resources toward the accelerated development of the Bobcat brand in South Africa.
CRM entered the compact equipment rental industry in 2003, with the launch of CRM Rental. Customers now also had the opportunity to rent the full range of Bobcat Compact Equipment from an organization with a large national footprint.
Having achieved growth beyond that of the rest of the market from 2001, Bobcat Equipment South Africa focuses entirely on the sale, rental and aftermarket support of the Bobcat range of compact equipment. With a strong and ever expanding national presence, Bobcat customers are sure to enjoy the highest possible levels of technical and commercial support.
Our company got its start because hearty souls on the Northern Plains weren’t satisfied with doing things the way they always had. Throughout the past half-century, our company and its employees have symbolized the innovative spirit, tenacity and personal pride that it takes to be successful.
Today—as it always has—our company emphasizes quality in products and workmanship, and cooperative relationships among customers, dealers, business associates, and employees. Our focus has always been to satisfy the demanding and continually changing needs of our customers.
We’re proud of our company and our products, so if you don’t find the information you’re looking for, please let us know.
Welcome to the story of a home-grown, North Dakota company and its development of the world-famous Bobcat product line.
During the past five decades, the company and its products have changed to meet the world’s needs. Today the Bobcat family includes skid-steer loaders, compact track loaders, all-wheel steer loaders, compact excavators, utility work machines, utility vehicles and job matched attachments.
Modern manufacturing techniques such as computer numeric control and robotics have been introduced, and stringent quality and cost control processes have helped us remain competitive in the world marketplace.
We have indeed gone through many changes. But one thing hasn’t changed since 1947: Our commitment to outstanding quality and workmanship. The world sees it in every machine that rolls off the line.
