SAC Light Commercial

In the beginning


SAC Commercial Parts opened the doors of its first Parts Distribution Warehouse in 2001, after the founder, Hein Lategan, recognised the need for high-quality and affordable alternative parts and components for South Africa’s most popular commercial vehicle brands.

Over the next 15 years, SAC Commercial Parts has grown to become one of the largest suppliers of alternative new and reconditioned used parts for leading European truck brands, including Volvo, Scania, Mercedes-Benz, MAN and DAF, both from its national warehouse and from its network of 10 strategically placed supply stores.

From its earliest days in Centurion, SAC Commercial Parts established itself as competition for large original equipment suppliers and hundreds of smaller, brand-specific parts stores by offering the best possible service and the highest quality parts.

SAC Trucks has recently changed their name to SAC Commercial Parts.

Sill offering the same value in service and quality spare parts. All that is changed is the fact that their customers now have access to a wider variety of spare parts. We are literally the one stop dream shop for any fleet owner.
