4 June 2013 – Oil and fuel analysis group WearCheck has opened a new office to service the eastern and southern Cape in South Africa. The company introduced oil analysis to the region more than 30 years ago, initially with travelling technicians; and later through technical support consultant Leon Marshall, who has serviced an established WearCheck client base from his Port Elizabeth-based home office for the past nine years.
While the majority of Marshall’s customers require industrial or automotive oil analysis, he also covers fuel (petrol and diesel), engine coolant and transformer oil analysis.
A mechanical engineer by profession, Marshall provides technical backup to customers in an area stretching from Umzimkulu on the KZN border, all the way to Mossel Bay in the southern Cape. After graduating from UCT he spent over 20 years administering fleets of construction equipment before joining WearCheck. He has been located in the Eastern Cape for 33 years and is familiar with many of the technical players in the region.
