PMS S.A. is exclusive agent for Greece of the South Africa-based company VESCONITE, who manufacture a proprietary brand of self-lubricated polymer bushings and wear plates that operate in dusty, dirty or wet conditions and still last longer than other products on the market.

These products do not require greasing, which fits in with the company’s ‘Zero Maintenance’ mantra.  80% of steel and bronze bushing applications can be replaced with Vesconite, which has up to ten times the wear life of competing products. 

While Vesconite is the company’s best-known product range, the new Vesconite Hilube range is important for customers who want the longest life and best performance possible, and is in particular demand by overseas customers. The company also produces standard polymers like nylon and polyethylene rods, bushings and plates.

It has the largest machine shop in the Free State, with over 80 computer numerically controlled lathes and machining centers, and large conventional lathes that are capable of machining bushings up to 3 000 mm in diameter.
