In 1966 the first HOFFMANN wheel balancing machine was imported and the contract with HOFFMANN as sole importer/distributor for South Africa was signed in 1967.
After 50 years Syco Machinery is still the sole distributor for HOFFMANN workshop equipment and HUNGER brake service machines. Over time other product lines have been added which include GS/BOXER wheel service equipment (35 years), Peak lifting equipment (5 years), MANATEC Wheel Alignment Systems (5 years) and Laub Lifts (10 years). A further milestone was the introduction of our in-house production TECHNO BRAKE range of vehicle roadworthy test equipment in the early 1990’s. We also represent the WARNES range of air compressors.
The company operates from its head office in Johannesburg with branches in Cape Town and Durban and has qualified service technicians who service and maintain the equipment countrywide ensuring the best service possible. A comprehensive range of spare parts is stocked for the entire range of equipment.
As one of the longest standing equipment suppliers in South Africa our equipment is used by a large number of companies/groups including: BMW S.A , MERCEDES-BENZ, FORD, VW, TOYOTA, NISSAN, TIGER WHEELS, TYRE MART, HI-Q, SUPA QUICK, SPEEDY, DUNLOP, KWIK FIT plus a large number of independent tyre fitment centres, garages and vehicle test stations. Furthermore many of our products are now used in our neighbouring countries.
We are proud of our long tradition and will continue to serve our customers for many years to come.
