Vert Energy has strengthened its position in the local electro-mechanical power transmission sector, with the consolidation of new distributor agreements and the relocation of its head office to larger premises in Linbro Park, Sandton. The company’s gear assembly centre, which was previously situated in Cape Town, has also transferred to the new facility.
“Vert Energy, which was established in 2011, has expanded its operation significantly and now requires larger premises to continue to provide high levels of operating efficiencies and delivery service throughout the African continent, in line with continued growth of the business,” says Grant Robertson, managing director, Vert Energy. “An important milestone is the consolidation of a long standing partnership with Leroy Somer, which goes back over 30 years. Vert Energy, which was originally appointed as exclusive distributors of LS alternators in Southern Africa, is now the sole supplier in the region for the entire LS range.
“Through the new distribution agreement with Leroy Somer – one of Europe’s largest electric motor manufacturers and one of the world’s leading electro-mechanical engineering companies – Vert Energy now supplies and supports the extensive LS range of standard and adapted AC and DC motors, geared/brake motors, as well as Leroy Somer variable speed drives and alternators.

Vert Energy’s service to the electro-mechanical power transmission sector, encompasses the supply of dependable products that combine high performance, energy efficiency, reduced downtime and extended service life, to meet the highest quality, safety and environmental standards.
