  At Roving Specialised Maintenance Services (Pty) Ltd, we specialise in cleaning and maintaining large mining equipment, conveyor belts, roof support and plants on site. This saves our clients money, increases their productivity and enables them to concentrate on their core business.

Why Maintenance?

  • Reduced maintenance expenditure.
  • Reduced Downtime due to efficient maintenance.
  • Increased profitability and production.
  • Reduced number of people.
  • Improved plant and equipment reliability and productivity.
  • Better health and safety.
  • No labour issues.
Maintenance might not win you new customers, but it's critical to determining plant integrity, reliability and availability. It also has a significant impact on health, safety and the environment as well as a massive influence on your running costs. The bottom line is maintenance influences your company's profitability and ability to compete.

Our Fuss-Free Philosophy

Prioritising maintenance does not necessarily mean that you have to be more involved. In fact, the opposite may apply.

We take responsibility for this vital element of your operations, challenging the way that your plant and equipment operate and introducing best practices - all so that you concentrate on your core business.

Our specialist teams will assist with your planned maintenance or we'll deploy full time maintenance personnel to look after your equipment. Our services also include the development of maintenance plans, execution, monitoring and maintenance reporting.

We are at the forefront of the move from reactive maintenance, through planned and preventative maintenance, to where a very proactive stance on equipment care is now possible, thanks to advances in equipment monitoring and analysis tools.
