South African sales and distribution company, Bell Equipment Sales South Africa (“BESSA”)

product range locally, which takes place through a comprehensive network of Bell-owned
customer service centres.
Together Bell Equipment and JCB are confident that this new partnership will benefit the
market and are now looking forward to supporting customers, both old and new, with world-
class products and service.
This distribution agreement with JCB forms part of the changes to Bell Equipment’s product
distribution arrangements in South Africa anticipated in Bell’s interim results announcement
