On 18 October 2018, the Bosch Rexroth South Africa group of companies (formerly the Hytec Group) officially inaugurated the 16 000 m2 Rexroth HUBB in Kempton Park, Gauteng. Six companies, Hägglunds, Bosch Rexroth South Africa, HYSA, Hytec Services Africa, Hytec and Tectra Automation took occupation at the HUBB (Hytec unified by Bosch) where they share centralised production, training, engineering, sales and support offices. Speaking at the inauguration, Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group chief executive officer Tillmann Olsen said consolidating the group’s assembly, production and logistical capabilities in a single location means fewer intralogistical transactions and streamlined handling to reduce time-to-market. Sharing the premises with Bosch Rexroth’s product development and support division further consolidates the 50-year Hytec/Bosch Rexroth partnership. Tillmann said the R200-million HUBB investment illustrates the group’s in industrial growth and business in South Africa, and other African countries.
