Blackwood Hodge Used Spares Division

Established by Joe Stravino in 1990 to complement his already successful plant and equipment rebuild company- BLC Plant, the used spares division of BLC Plant Company has become what is arguably the largest operation of its kind in Africa.

By 1999 the used spares division had grown to such an extent that an identity of its own was needed to add value and develop this part of the business. This was achieved by taking over the then JCB agent in South Africa, and in doing so the name Blackwood Hodge SA Pty Ltd was used to market the used spares division.

Blackwood Hodge is managed by Mick Marriott and Clive Grenfell, and together with their dedicated team, they concentrate on supplying high quality used parts and reconditioned components for Caterpillar equipment to the mining, construction and quarrying industries. The year 2000 saw Blackwood Hodge take over the old AEG premises in Kew and after an 8 month upgrade now has in excess of 20000 m2 of modern office/storage and workshop space.

In excess of 1200 current and late model Caterpillar machines have been dismantled to date. Once the machines have been dismantled the parts and components are cleaned and checked for reusability by dedicated teams before being sent to various storage areas or to the workshops in order to be rebuilt to Caterpillar specifications. The workshop facilities include 4 modern bays for engine, transmission and differential rebuilds with a test bed suitable for wheel loader and grader transmissions. The latest addition is the hydraulic workshop in which pumps and cylinders are rebuilt and tested. All rebuilds are tested and covered by a 6 month warranty.

Joe Stravino has always believed in the value of having a committed and contented workforce in his business undertakings and proof of this can be seen in the fact that many of the Blackwood Hodge staff have been with him since the early days. Through a commitment to quality and service Blackwood Hodge has gone from strength to strength and will continue to provide the Caterpillar owner with a superior product at a competitive price for many years to come.
