We have worked with Howcroft for about two years now. We are able to get things now on a short delivery time, I can make a call to Howcroft, their driver usually comes straight through and we get our parts on a really quick turnaround. Pricing is one of the reasons we went to Howcroft. They’re competitive, we did use other suppliers but now we take everything through Howcroft. Price, Service, Speed… everything that’s a positive we get from Howcroft. It’s very personal!
I’ve dealt with HIS since the day they started back in 1999. Their products and prices have always maintained to be the best I’ve been able to source, wherever I’ve worked. The day Allan Howcroft told me that HIS would be supplying their own brand of shaft mounted gear unit’s, I never gave it another thought, I just went for it. They are now fitted to over 90% of our preparation plant, in the harshest and most demanding of circumstances. Not that I had any doubt but they are lasting longer than the ones we have replaced, but the main thing is that HIS have given a cost saving reduction of 43% compared to our previous supplier. This SMGU for the money is by far the best you can buy.
