Afrimech deals strictly with well known global manufacturers with the best after-sales network available. The brand names not only guarantee the best quality for working in African conditions, but also the best possible residual value. If for whatever reason a client wants to resell equipment, it will not be difficult to do so and the value will not have depreciated a lot.
