Superior South African FAW Generators by Pretoria’s PacB Group

Across the world and certainly on the great African continent and within South Africa, it’s not at all unusual to spot FAW trucks at construction sites. They are also often spotted in places where civil engineering projects are taking place or on highways, byways, and dirt tracks. They are usually heavily loaded and leading to or from tough and rugged workplaces.

Under such constant working conditions, only tough, robust machines and trucks will do, and the same applies to commercial vehicle engines. Consequently, this is where you’re most frequently bound to find FAW workhorses, fitted with equally strong, hardy diesel engines that are up to the job. They are always willing, reliable, and dependable.

It stands to reason that any other equipment which carries the proud FAW name will have to conform to the sterling reputation of the brand. Today, in hindsight, it seems almost inevitable that the same, proven FAW diesel engine technology has migrated and been applied for another vitally important use – in the power generating sector, as industrial diesel generators.

What’s In the FAW Name and Heritage?

Familiar as the heavy vehicles may be and the more widely-known the brand’s diesel generators are rapidly becoming throughout South Africa, some people aren’t aware of the brand’s full name – “First Automobile Works”, abbreviated to the well-known and respected FAW brand.

This Chinese automotive giant has a long, illustrious history. The company was founded in China in 1953, and subsequently became this China’s first producer of locally manufactured passenger cars in 1958. It branched out further into the production of light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks, buses, and automotive parts, in addition to growing its passenger vehicle range. While automotive production continues in China, the manufacture, sales, supply, and service of industrial diesel FAW generators has been outsourced to approved, accredited dealerships in various African countries, amongst these, to the reputable PacB Group of South Africa.

PacB Group and FAW Generators

PacB and in particular our Power Solutions division has been involved in the industry as a reputable, reliable manufacturer of a range of industrial diesel generators, uninterrupted power supplies, state-of-the-art standard and customised renewable energy solutions, as well as rental services pertaining to our products. As mentioned, we’re accredited as FAW generator specialists, because we live up to high standards, and the name of the originators of this brand.

Our PacB Electech sister company, the latest addition to the Group, takes care of essential generator-associated services such as professional installations, service level agreements, monitoring of our products, and repairs when necessary.

The PacB Group’s track record in the industry is one of which we’re also justifiably proud – more than ten years of superior generator and engine control panel production, which remains at the heart of our expanding and ever-improving business.

Additional Outlets

We’re located in Silvertondale, Pretoria, the site of our head office. We have a second outlet in South Africa, which is situated in the town of Bela Bela, Limpopo. In order to facilitate our services to the vital mining, industrial, commercial, residential, and hospital or healthcare sectors, as well as essential cell phone towers and others which rely on IT and allied technologies that depend on seamless electricity supplies throughout Africa, we also have PacB Group centres in Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

These are all countries and regions where FAW trucks are familiar, albeit not part of PacB Group’s business. However, many of the places in Africa are not connected to a steadfast, reliable mains electricity grid, and for these concerns and their smooth, operation, electricity is essential. They rely on industrial diesel FAW generators, recommended, manufactured, installed, and serviced by the PacB Group.

Our qualified technicians offer support and advice in the selection of the right power solution for your needs by calculating your power requirements.
