SparePower Company Profile

SparePower supplies quality new, used and refurbished earthmoving parts, components and machines to the earthmoving, contract mining, quarrying and construction industry. We are the sole appointed distributor of Geographe high quality pins, bushes, gears and wear parts for Africa and SRP aftermarket parts for Volvo construction equipment throughout Southern Africa.

The key factor setting us apart from our competitors is Managing Director, Fred Sprenzel who has more than 30 years’ experience owning and operating a large contract mining operation. He, together with his hand-picked team of industry experts, most of whom have in excess of 20 years’ experience in the earthmoving industry, understand how important it is to provide a quality service to our customers and the operational difficulties that you encounter.

Paying a premium for an OEM-only policy does not always translate into better quality parts or service.

At SparePower we are able to offer cost effective solutions to extend the service life of your equipment by supplying quality parts that you can depend on, thereby significantly reducing running costs and the cost of machine downtime. We do this by carefully selecting suppliers and offering high standards of service along with sound technical advice.

Infrastructure Investment

SparePower has built a purpose-designed 5000m2 workshop. A 1200m office building, currently under construction, will house the administrative department as well as the dedicated parts, component and machine sales department.
Our workshop allows us to repair or strip up to ten pieces of large earthmoving equipment simulta-neously. An advanced component repair and assembly area allows SparePower to offer a wide range of quality parts and service exchange components.
SparePower is one of a very few local facilities equipped with a large track adjuster (coil spring) press and offers specialised repairs as a value-added service.

Vision and Values

SparePower is built on a foundation of integrity, service and quality, values which will always remain the cornerstone of all our business transactions.
