Winchester Supply works with a number of mining and exploration companies in Africa and elsewhere, from Copper Mines in Zambia, to the Gold, Bauxite, Rutile and Iron Mines of West Africa. We supply them with a comprehensive range of equipment to allow them to meet their targets.
We assist them to obtain the equipment that keeps their production going, get them back up and running when breakdowns occur and allows them to realise projects by sourcing and supplying the hundreds of items that need to be in place before and during their project cycle.
United Nations projects & NGO’s
We are registered with and receive regular (daily) enquiries from a number of United Nations Missions in various parts of the world. We are also familiar with the procurement procedures of many of the major funding agencies and provide regular assistance to some of their funded projects.
The Agricultural Sector is where we started and it is probably the single most important sector within the markets we work. In Africa, a continent of abundance where many children go to bed hungry every night, efficient control of the Agricultural sector is critical.
Agriculture provides food, medicines, employment and foreign exchange and we’ve been at the heart of it for many years. We’ve supplied most items from planting stock to tractors, seed, fertilizer, irrigation equipment, pumps and spares, silos for grain and sacks for tea.
We’ve supplied processing equipment for rose petals to extract the essential oils in Tanzania and handling equipment for West Indian bananas. Our supply has not always been restricted to machinery or plants. We’ve also supplied thousands of fertile hens’ eggs to incubators in broiler farms in Nigeria and we’ve even airfreighted a herd of pigs to a farm in East Africa.
Roads and building construction are important indicators of a country’s progress. New roads open up remote areas to development and allow produce to get to market. New buildings create safe premises for key businesses or provide housing for growing populations. This sort of development needs expensive equipment to ensure that the finished product represents a safe and reliable investment by a Government, a business or a householder. Winchester Supply has been supplying construction equipment and spare parts, building materials, asphalt, cement, testing equipment, electrical installation items, elevators; the list goes on, since our establishment. We have excellent contacts worldwide with prime suppliers in this field.
We take the business of helping Utility Companies keep the water flowing and the lights burning very seriously. We recently carried out a consultancy to assess the upgrading of the electrical supply in a West African capital. This required a six week survey, seminars with stakeholders, preparation of tender documents and full specifications to be prepared for such items as overhead cable, underground cable, transformers, ring main units, electricity meters, transmission poles and insulators and many other associated items.
We also work with Utility Companies in the Hurricane belt of the West Indies where replacement of electricity lines is a yearly necessity following a battering by high winds. All items involved with the collection, storage, purification and distribution of water for Townships have also been procured by us.
Winchester Supply supplies to numerous Port Authorities in Africa and the Middle East and delivers goods to their unique requirements. Whether it’s an urgent requirement for parts or container loads of tyres for their forklifts, we can provide a personalised service which suits our clients’ needs.
Port Authority contracts involve pressurised work and success is calculated on the amount of tonnage that crosses the ships’ rail. The handling equipment must keep working to achieve their targets and we have the supply contacts to ensure that urgent maintenance equipment arrives on time and allows these targets to be met.
Procurement is a service that can be valuable in almost all industry sectors. We have been involved with the Health and Road Sectors and more recently have supplied various items of equipment into the Cement Manufacturing Industry in Africa.
