Lindsay Africa, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lindsay Corporation, was founded by Lindsay in 2002. Lindsay Africa (LA) recently relocated to a new site in Bellville South, Cape Town, South Africa that covers some 17 000m². From here LA is responsible for marketing, distributing and manufacturing Lindsay products in South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.
Lindsay Africa is the second Lindsay facility established outside the U.S. and consists of a factory, an office block and warehouse. From this facility LA offers turnkey solutions that include design and distribution. Although Lindsay Africa was first established in 2002, Zimmatic by Lindsay products have been in operation in Africa, since the early 1970s.
LA has an extensive network of Zimmatic dealers throughout sub-Sahara Africa, with the largest concentration in South Africa. These dealers are trained to provide design, sales, installation and after-sales service to growers and to keep inventories of essential parts.
