For more than 60 years, First Cut an important distributor of capital equipment and related cutting consumables. It has a portfolio of international principals. There was, however, one area which the company sought to augment, and that was cutting thicker steel plate. To provide this solution, First Cut recently entered an agreement with Messer Cutting Systems in Europe to take over the latter’s South African operation. Messer has had a presence in South Africa for the past 15 years, from a single office in Gauteng. In terms of the new agreement, it will be able to service the entire country more effectively via First Cut’s local presence . The Messer agency is now part of First Cut’s Machine Division managed by Anthony Lezar. Messer Cutting Systems’ equipment comes into its own in industries such as motor vehicle and mining equipment manufacturing, construction, shipbuilding and railroad rolling stock manufacturing.
