In the history of any business, there are moments that test its toughness and determination. The year 2021 brought one such event for us at Motion Tronic. The widespread unrest that swept through KZN during that time left a trail of destruction and loss. However, our story is one of resilience, determination, and an unwavering commitment to our customers.

The 2021 unrest in KZN was a challenging time for individuals and companies alike. The disorder resulted in significant damage to infrastructure and properties, leaving many businesses grappling with the aftermath. Unfortunately, we weren’t immune to the devastating effects of this unrest. Our premises in Waterfall, KZN, fell victim to the flames, leaving behind only ashes and ruins.

The impact on us was severe. The business suffered a complete loss, including all of our testing equipment, which was vital for our operations. It was a devastating blow, and the road to recovery seemed long and uncertain. But we refused to succumb to adversity. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, we embarked on a journey of rebirth and renewal.

October 2021 marked a turning point for our business. We relocated to new premises in New Germany, encompassing a spacious 800 square meters. With unwavering determination, the team began the process of reconstructing the offices and workshop. Within just one month, the headquarters were up and running, a testament to our efficiency and dedication.

Rebuilding our testing equipment and workshops was a crucial step in Motion Tronic’s revival. We spared no effort in replacing all the stock that had been lost, ensuring we were well-equipped to serve our customers. We also invested in state-of-the-art motor testing technology, enabling us to offer our clients even more precise and efficient solutions.

A key milestone in our resurgence was the construction of a new load testing station. It’s a facility that allowed us to rigorously test drivers under various conditions, ensuring our reliability and performance. Additionally, we built new testing amenities specifically designed for servo motor and drive repair, further expanding our capabilities and expertise.

Today, Motion Tronic stands tall once again, fully operational and thriving. In 2022, we became the African partner agency for Inovance, a global leader in programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and variable frequency drives (VFDs). Our journey since the 2021 unrest is a testament to our grit, adaptability, and promise to our customers. With our rebuilt infrastructure and cutting-edge technology, Motion Tronic is well-positioned to cater to the industrial automation needs of businesses across KZN.
