Loadtech, the Centurion-based manufacturer and distributor of loadcells, has concluded a successful visit by Vishay Tedea Huntleigh, its international technology partner. The two companies have enjoyed a long association over 10 years and, according to Loadtech MD, John Harrison, the benefits to both companies have consistently improved year on year.
"With Vishay's acquisitions in the loadcell field," says Harrison, "Loadtech is now able to offer a much wider range, including BLH, Celtron, Sensortronics and Tedea-Huntleigh. With these strong brands in our stable, we will be able to continue growing our market share. Vishay's strategy of offering a one-stop shop has translated into an increase in business for us and the potential for growth is very exciting.
Vishay's sales and marketing director for Africa and Asia, Eran Singer, agrees, saying that he is very pleased with Loadtech's performance. "I view our relationship as a happy marriage, with all the benefits that this brings to us. Loadtech is ideally positioned to take advantage of our purchase of BLH and Sensortronics, along with our other ranges. We think of them as a solution provider and not just a distributor. The improvement in the local economy currency has made importation more attractive and while the currency has been a past concern, we are more positive about the future than ever."
In addition to the Vishay product line, Loadtech manufactures a range of standard loadcells used in various weighing applications. The range extends from 50 kg up to 200 ton with accuracies from 0,2% to 0,03%. Special mass or force sensors can be made to order and special applications include crane overload and weighing, bolt-on strain sensors, lift overload systems and low cost level measurement.
