Since established, West Power Steering has prided itself on the ultimate in courteous, professional fast service.
West Power Steering was established in 1994, when a niche was identified in the power steering repair industry.
As the one-man trade grew into a small, very successful business, it was decided to register as a small business and to employ employees in 1998.
In October 2011 we opened our doors for our Johannesburg branch in Strijdom Park. This branch is growing successfully.
We have also successfully opened a hydraulic branch, Custom Porta Power, in February 2013.
West Power Steering manufactures its own pressure seals: Universal, Re-usable, High Pressure Seals (URHP Seals), reducing costs to the company and client.
With this uniqueness West Power Steering can offer a 12 + month guarantee on all steering units reconditioned / supplied. URHP Seals have been SABS tested,
with the outcome of 50 MPa constant pressure (annexure A). URHP Seals have been patented in South Africa, with the name “A Seal''.
The client either makes a booking or comes into the workshop. The client's steering unit is then checked and a price is quoted.
If the price is accepted the unit is washed, stripped and re-washed. The seals are then measured and made on the lathe with the
correct clearances and then installed into the steering unit. The steering unit is then assembled and then replaced in the motor vehicle
or returned to the client.
Service / recon: West Power Steering specializes in the servicing / reconditioning of steering units, big or small.
Supply: A steering unit can be supplied (subject to availability) when the original steering unit is broken and beyond repair.
Manufacture: URHP Seals are manufactured on site.
