With just over a year since their launch , Motira products have received a very positive response on the domestic market and plans are under way to set up a manufacturing plant in Zimbabwe, a gradual process which will entail training of citizen engineers and acquiring of the highly technical equipment used in the manufacturing process.

The supply of local components is priority to Motira and where possible any components of the tractors that can meet set standards and can be sourced locally will be excluded from imported kits thereby promoting local industrialization and employment

The SADC regional market presents huge possibilities which Motira will soon be tapping into as it expands

Motira will be opening a retail outlet in Willowvale which will stock and supply all spares and accessories for the current tractor and generator range.

Motira realises how cumbersome it is to transport a tractor to workshops in Harare and has a team of mobile technicians who are on call 24hours a day, 7 days a week to attend to repairs, regular service and general check up right on your doorstep at your farm. We take the convenience of our customers and minimization of down time very seriously .

OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

The presence of Motira in Zimbabwe has opened up a cocktail of opportunities as local authorities have been urged to grab the multipurpose tractors for municipal errands. This acquisition of the tractors will ideally save scarce national resources as they are ideal for refuse collection and grass cutting, among other errands.

Motira has made a commitment to service the agricultural sector through our unique and special products. As the country continues on the economic recovery path, it is destined to be one of the leading players in the revival of the agricultural sector which is pivotal to economic recovery, growth and prosperity.

The company is looking to expand its product range with earthmoving equipment, trailers and mining equipment soon to join the already impressive product line up.

Limited distributorship opportunities exist in areas where Motira does not already have a presence which will be subject to the stringet Motira evaluation in order to maintain the high quality service standards that have become synonymous with the Motira and Itmco brands.
