Netech Distributors focuses on the supply, maintenance and load testing of all brands of lifting equipment. We have also recently incorporated distributorships of industrial tooling and consumables brands to satisfy the demand of our clients as well as offering a ‘one stop’ procurement experience. We at Netech regard our staff members as assets rather than employees as we like them to see a future and growth in their livelihoods in return for their honest and professional efforts as they are in fact the forefront of our company.



The company ‘Steel Ropes cc.’ was established in October 1982 and was officially appointed as a distributor of Mckinnon Chain and ‘Haggie ltd.’ Ropes, since date of establishment.

The company ‘Echo Cranes cc.’ was then purchased by the owners of ‘Steel Ropes cc.’ to enable them to amalgamate to offer a complete service with regards to sales, service, maintenance and repairs to lifting machinery and lifting tackle.


The company ‘Netech Distributors cc.’ was established in January 1999, amalgamating ‘Steel Ropes cc.’ and ‘Echo Cranes cc.’ by the current C.E.O Mister Hannes van Reenen. The owner decided to keep all the infrastructure, distributorships and resources from these companies, except for the repairs to overhead and mobile cranes.


We still however are suppliers to this field, in terms of the supply of consumables and spares for this specialized type of lifting machinery. ‘Netech Distributors’ now boasts the only independent lifting company in the region offering the following:

  • B.E.E compliancy

  • Distributors of only 100% S.A.N.S compliant lifting equipment

  • Distributors of high quality industrial, S.A.B.S approved tooling and consumables

  • Compliant with the ‘Occupational Health and Safety Act’

  • The issue of a manufacturers test certificate at the purchase of any new lifting equipment

  • The issue of a ‘Netech Distributors’ test certificate signed by a qualified load test technician

  • All load test technicians are registered and recognized by the ‘Department of Labour’

  • Load testing on / off site by means of a 40 Ton mobile test rig as well as an ‘in-house’ test rig

  • Trade tested rigger & crew with equipment for all rigging jobs on site • 24 hour free emergency standby for contract customers
