Utility vehicles on your doorstep
UV Botswana (Pty) Ltd is a 100% Botswana owned Company, which was established in 2005, to design and manufacture robust, reliable, and cost effective underground utility vehicles for the mining and quarrying industry. Set up in Francistown, in the North East of the country, the Company is ideally situated geographically, to service the Southern and Central African region. By setting up in Botswana, the Company has reaped the benefits of working with a stable currency, labour force and a Government committed to good governance. Initially the Company produced a low profile 4 tonne range of vehicles, specifically designed for the low profile mines in the region. This range of vehicles have proven themselves to be the market leader in their class, and over the interim years, the Company has been able to supply a large population of them to mines throughout the region. Using the experience gained on the 4 tonne range, the Company has designed and manufactured a larger, 8 tonne range of vehicles, more suited for conventional mining operations. This exciting development has allowed us to expand our export potential to areas outside of the sub – region and we now have a global foot print of around 300 vehicles.
To cater for this expansion, the Company moved into a new, custom designed 2500 square metre factory in 2013. The Company has invested in the state of the art computer controlled equipment, which has enabled us to expand our operation in, not only the manufacture of our vehicles, but also has enabled us to diversify into other areas such the manufacture of major component parts for other mining machines such as buckets, drill booms and the like. With our experienced in house design team, using the latest computer software, and our modern workshop staffed by committed professionals, we are able to design and build custom vehicles to suit any particular need or requirement.
UV Botswana (Pty) Ltd is backed up by appointed service agents, regionally and internationally, who carry a full range of backup spares for our various models. These agents employ technicians who are OEM certified, which ensures a timeous and dependable backup to not only the UVB machines working in their area of operation, but also all other GHH Group products providing for a complete support solution.
