In 1980… A dream became a reality as Dozer Parts was formed and officially started right in this very building by the late DS Reynolds and Jan Du Toit!
Shortly after inception, we got a call for some required Caterpillar spare parts and by default a CAT D7E Track Dozer was brought in and dismantled for parts, all being sold out very soon after… This being the start of our component trade and something big and exciting for the "Dozer" franchise within Southern Africa and soon to be globally.
We then made the move to import and bring in New Original Caterpillar equipment, components & parts from places such as Italy, Spain, the USA and many other countries.
Dozer Machine Sales was also formed alongside Dozer Parts in the 1980's as we could completely rebuild these machines from start to finish within our yard using the new supply of spares we were importing in.
The main focus being on the rebuilding of used CAT machinery such as the 920 FELs, 930 FELs, 950A FELs, 966C FELs, D4D/E Track Dozers, D6C Track Dozers, D7E/F/G up to D9H Track Dozers, Cat 140G Graders and 215 and 225 Excavators.

Dozer itself used to specialise within the equipment hire industry. Hiring out a wide and vast range of equipment to the South African market and beyond!
Our team of 21 sales people were part of a vibrant tele sales parts program. The generic parts company was sold in the mid 90s to Delta metals whom owned ESP Africa.

Dozer Parts was the first to dismantle a Cat 994 Wheel loader for parts and components in the mid to late 90's
We were the first to dismantle Cat 785B and 789B trucks.
Dozer over the years has put together a select range of good used and remanufactured components and parts, for late model earthmoving equipment.
Many rebuilds have passed through the facility
