Workshop Extension Progress

Bossong Engineering is thrilled to announce that the workshop extension which will add an extra 700m2 to the original building is almost complete.

Bossong Engineering recently developed a new capability for the Oil and Gas Industry that allows our customers to satellite track their ocean baskets or any other equipment with the Bosstrak device attached through our web site by using the following link:

Bosstrak is a global positioning system that provides the location of the device every 12 hours allowing customers to view the last position of your shipment or the position history on this web site. The device is highly impact resistant, rugged and water tight with two removable keys isolating the power supply to prevent radio transmission. Like all GPS system the device must have a clear view of the sky to function. For more information email or call using the contact information provided on the website.
