South African cooling towers and cooling solutions firm IWC, which is exhibiting at Electra Mining Africa 2014, has recently acquired Tektower, a South African cooling tower manufacturer and related services provider.
Formerly known as Sulzer Cooling, Tektower has been providing innovative cooling solutions for 40 years completing projects in South Africa and on the sub-continent including Sudan, Kenya, Zambia, Nigeria, Mozambique and Mauritius.
Currently based in Spartan, Gauteng, Tektower will be relocating to the IWC company premises in Isando, retaining its brand name and operating as an IWC subsidiary.
While existing management of Tektower will remain the same, joining the board of directors at Tektower is IWC financial manager Pooven Reddy, who will take over as FD of the new IWC subsidiary, and IWC MD Roger Rusch, who will assume the role of CEO.
“The strength of the Tektower brand and their expertise in the South African market as well as their impressive track record in Africa offers an added advantage to IWC’s existing service and product offering,” comments Rusch.
