LEAD has strictly applied a philosophy to its business that competent after sales service must always precedes any sales initiative, and to this end LEAD technical teams have always had, and continue to have a strong presence in Zimbabwe. In order to take this after sales service to new levels, Jim Fletcher has recently appointed trained technical service agents in Zimbabwe and we believe that this will enable our customers to enjoy a standard of service in the coming years not previously experienced in this field in Zimbabwe.

We understand that faulty equipment and downtime impacts your ability to deliver a quality product at the best possible price, and that it is the difference between commercial viability and failure.
At LEAD we offer:

  • State-of-the-art technology linking all our national call centres
  • Trained service controllers using unique software to log, manage and record the repair history of your equipment
  • Comprehensive spares stock holdings in all major centres
  • Expertly trained technicians employed by Lead and specialising in Lead brands.
