History of BurGerS

Mr PCC Burger started his career in the earthmoving and transport business in 1989 in South-Africa.

He acquired transport contracts and later ore management contracts with loaders and trucks at Eastern Platinum mine, Western Platinum mine and Karee mine in North-West Province.

In 1993 he also got contracts at Anglo American and RLT in Mpumalanga to do coal handling. The transport and loading of trains followed.  Then contracts with Total at Kriel and Bethal, also to do all the coal handling in the mines.

He soon realised that the biggest capital outlay is machinery and that was when he started doing research to find reliable, good quality machines that is less expensive.

He saw a LiuGong loader working at a mine in Mpumalanga, and started doing intensive research about this brand.  Soon after that, he bought his first LiuGong machine from the previous LiuGong agent in South Africa.

Without a doubt, that changed the field of his business.  LiuGong machines are cost effective, with world class components such as Cummins engines and ZF drive trains.  That was when his business had a rapid growth which set the table for becoming the Namibian agent for LiuGong in 2007.

As mine contract is limited to 3-5 years and then the tender process must begin all over, he decided to leave the mining industry and go with the more secured LiuGong dealership with more stability for his family’s future.

In 2012 he was also given the opportunity to take over the LiuGong dealership in South-Africa and from there he has never looked back. Today BurGerS in South Africa and Namibia, not only sells LiuGong machines and parts but also a wide variety of earthmoving and auto parts.
