Two leading KwaZulu-Natal materials handling specialist companies – BLT WORLD and Desmond Equipment – mark 10 years of their association this year.

“BLT WORLD, which was appointed by Desmond Equipment to supply and support the Dezzi range of bulk handling equipment in 2009, is proud to celebrate this important milestone,” says Ken Mouritzen, managing director, BLT WORLD. “The locally-designed and manufactured range of Dezzi machines comprises front-end loaders, articulated dump trucks, graders and tractor-trailer combinations, including hauler tractors.

“These units can be seen hard at work throughout the country in all sectors, particularly in shipping, sugar, timber and agricultural sectors.

“What’s important for users is Dezzi machines have robust features to cope efficiently in difficult operating conditions. This range, which offers high productivity, extended service life and low maintenance requirements, can be customised to suit exact customer requirements.”

Popular units in the Dezzi range are 1200 LP (low-profile) loaders, designed for efficient loading of various materials, including coal, cereals and mill scale.

Dezzi shunting haulers and tractors are used at harbours and terminals for towing trailers that haul containers, cargo and any specialised commodity handled at the port. These tractors are also used at the harbour to tow and shunt rail cars.

Dezzi equipment used extensively in the local sugar sector includes Mega Mover cane loaders, bundle cane loaders and graders. These machines ensure easy control, efficient cane handling and optimum safety.

Included in the range of Dezzi trailers are quick-turn and tip-dump trailers, designed for various materials handling applications in mining, construction and general engineering.

BLT WORLD, in close association with Desmond Equipment, supports Dezzi equipment with a technical advisory and service facility throughout the country.
