WearCheck’s first laboratory opened in Durban, South Africa in 1976, and today the company flag flies proudly over 14 world-class laboratories in nine countries across Africa and beyond. (RSA, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, DRC, Ghana, India and Dubai, with a presence in several other African countries.)
As leaders in the preventive maintenance field, WearCheck services a wide range of industries (earthmoving, industrial, transport, shipping, aircraft and electrical) with an array of different monitoring techniques, all of which are geared to ensuring industrial machinery operates at peak performance with reduced maintenance costs.
After humble beginnings with a laboratory set up in a garage, the company has grown and developed and now processes in excess of 750 000 used oil samples each year. Furthermore, the company has added a host of additional condition monitoring services in recent years – reliability solutions, transformer oil analysis, water analysis and Advanced Field Services (non-destructive testing, technical compliance and rope condition assessment.)
Under the guidance of MD, Neil Robinson, WearCheck is committed to providing customers an excellent return on their investment in the company’s condition monitoring programme.
WearCheck is a company that takes top quality seriously. The company’s position at the helm of global condition monitoring trends is a source of pride for all who work there. WearCheck is currently the only condition monitoring company on the African continent with ISO 9001 quality certification and ISO 14001 certification for its environmental management programme, as well as ISO 17025 accreditation for its laboratory-centric quality management programme.
