Join MCB at hall 5stand 5G60 and experience Automechanika Johannesburg at its finest!

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, August 2, 2017—Mineral Circles Bearings (MCB), one of Middle East and Africa’s trusted bearing distributors and manufacturers, announces its first ever participation in Automechanika Johannesburg, Africa’s premier automotive trade show, on the 27th – 30th of September 2017 at the JHB Expo Center in Nasrec.

Recognizing South Africa’s strength in both automotive and industrial sectors, MCB aims to re-establish a strong market base in the continent by showcasing quality products from its own economical brand, also known as MCB, as well as from world renowned manufacturers MBS, NTN-SNR, ILJIN, and KBC.

Hassanein Alwan, MCB’s Marketing Director, said “South Africa is the main hub of automotive car manufacturing in the continent for leading car brands such as Hyundai. With its proximity to Dubai as well as with the surrounding landlocked areas in the Sub-Saharan region, we foresee a big business potential in bearings and grease”.  

Alwan mentioned that joining Automechanika Johannesburg will open new doors of opportunities for trade visitors to choose innovative products such as NTN-SNR’s HEAVY DUTY EP3 High Load grease suitable for heavy trucks as well as ball bearings, wheel bearing kits, and tensioner bearings.

“Automechanika by far is the most credible trade show brand for the spare parts industry. Through the years, the organizers have given us full support in our previous exhibitions not just here in the UAE but in KSA, and Turkey as well. Their professionalism, territorial know-how, and vast regional contacts made us decide to choose them as events partner as they will be instrumental in our preparations to achieve our goal for the entire continent of Africa by 2020,” Alwan added.
