The Desmond Group of companies has been in business since 1973, and are renowned in the last 24 years, for the manufacturing of South African designed Dezzi equipment; the first front-end loader rolled off the assembly line in 1996.
Desmond Equipment SA’s head office and factory is based in Port Shepstone, and aftermarket service is offered nationwide in southern Africa into sub-saharan Africa with a total of 21 strategically placed branches and dealers.
We Are Proudly South African
As we are a local manufacturer, with most of our manufacturing being done in house, it allows us to have facilities for custom built equipment across all industries.
The machines manufactured by Dezzi, at its factory in Port Shepstone, include:
- Articulated dump trucks;
- Articulated haulers;
- Rigid hauler tractors;
- Front-end loaders;
- Motor grader; and
These machines and various customised earthmoving equipment are earmarked for the cane, forestry, sugar, plant hire, construction, building, mining and quarrying industries.
The benefit of being a South African manufacturer is that clients can visit the factory and discuss any customisations with the Dezzi engineers to suit their specific application. (Octo-Logistics is one example)
The company recently signed an agreement with Merchant West and is able to offer competitive tailor made financial solutions to existing and new customers.
Backhoe loader Dezzi CMI
In 2017 Dezzi signed an agreement to become the sole distributor of the Dezzi CMI backhoe loader – Dezzi CMI 883 4×4 turbo with a Perkins engine and FZ transmission and axles.
Great customer relationships
With nearly 25 years of experience in the local manufacturing industry and distribution across all of Africa we pride ourselves in our well established and supported client network, which is underpinned by our legendary after-market service and parts availability. established
