About Us

Avir (Pty) Ltd is the sole agent for JAC forklifts, Kaishan Compressors and other industrial related products, specialising in the importation, servicing and distribution thereof.

Why JAC Forklifts?

Avir initially imported fifty JAC forklifts for our own use in 2007.  We deliberately sourced a forklift offering high quality, great durability, long service life and competitive pricing and were very impressed with the low service and maintenance costs, coupled with high reliability.  Having built a relationship with JAC Heavy-Duty Construction Machine Company (JAC), we became the sole agents of JAC Forklifts and Spares, providing the South African Market with a strong contender in the material handling sector at affordable prices.
