In order to provide Protea customers with any aftersales support they may require, we appreciate dealers that are in a position to offer services such as cylinder sharpening, engine maintenance and general repairs on our equipment. We are always prepared to support our dealers should they require assistance.
Should a potential dealer be applying for 30 day account with us, we will need to carry out a credit check that the dealer would need to pass before an account can be opened in their name.
