RCT continues its role of providing essential services

As an integral technology enabler for the mining and industrial sectors for over 48 years, RCT continues to support our customers amid the global COVID-19 situation.

RCT's role as a technology enabler and solution provider is critical, now more than ever, as mining customers leverage more on automation and technology to maintain pre-COVID-19 output and production with a less transient workforce. The mantra "do more with less" is ever more real in times like this.

To ensure our customers' business continuity, RCT is looking at innovative ways of providing technical support to our customers remotely, and how best to provide essential goods and services to our customers at their sites within the ambit of government directives and also ensuring that our employees’ safety and health are not put at risk.

To ensure a sustainable supply to our customers, RCT has been working closely with our key suppliers to ensure there is minimum impact from the COVID-19 situation to RCT's inventory. RCT's branches are working to ensure that customers' orders are fulfilled in a timely manner.

We value our relationship with all of our customers' and will be continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic. Our supply chain is constantly putting in measures to minimise any disruption to supply that may occur.

RCT looks forward to continuing working closely with you to ensure that RCT can continue to provide essential goods, services and support to you expeditiously in these current COVID-19 circumstances.

Supporting and Managing COVID-19 Together

Due to the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, RCT will closely monitor the evolution of the virus across the globe and take precautionary measures to reduce the spread of transmission.

We are committed to protecting everyone in the community which requires us to be nimble and flexible in how we respond. Therefore, please be advised RCT is taking precautionary measures to reduce the spread of transmission.


As travel restrictions are being implemented around the world to contain the spread of COVID-19, RCT has suspended international travel for all employees globally. The restrictions may require some unfortunate changes and we will work with our customers and partners to make alternative plans.

Branches and Offices

Each of our branches and offices around the world has intensified additional safety and cleaning procedures, including proper handwashing techniques, disinfecting, and social distancing to ensure the wellbeing of everyone. Restricted access to RCT premises has been applied to employees and the general public. RCT respectfully requests that you do not attend any of our premises if you’ve:

Employee Health and Wellbeing

RCT will prioritise employee health and wellbeing. We have procedures in place to react quickly to isolate anyone who may require medical treatment or testing. We are also encouraging all of our employees to support each other through this difficult time and to be open with their team leaders about specific concerns.

Family Responsibilities

Currently, we are facilitating flexible work arrangements for those living or caring for others in a high-risk category and/or care for children as a result of closure to schools and/or day care facilities.


In addition, RCT has also put in place precautionary measures to ensure that we can still operate at our full capacity to meet the needs and demands of all of our customers. This includes:

RCT will constantly provide updates according to the latest developments and advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO), along with local and national Government authorities.

We will keep this webpage updated as more information is made available to us and to ensure you’re notified of any changes to RCT’s position on the matter.
