Flowcrete South Africa Expands to Meet Growing Demand
26 Nov 2014
- Flowcrete has expanded its South African facilities.
- The new facility will be a huge benefit to clients.
- Flowcrete South Africa also has a head office and manufacturing centre in Durban.
The global flooring specialist Flowcrete has expanded its South African facilities to cope with increasing demand for its products.
On Thursday 13th February an official opening ceremony was held for a brand new Flowcrete South Africa warehouse and sales office in Cape Town. Staff and clients attended the event, which marks a significant milestone in the company's development.
The new location and increased functionality will allow Flowcrete South Africa to meet growing calls for its products in the developing Western Cape market by providing a faster service.
The new facility will be a huge benefit to clients who will see the lead times of products fall due to its ability to stock 88 tons of product much closer to the end user than was previously possible.
Craig Blitenthall, Managing Director of Flowcrete South Africa, said: “The opening of these new facilities is an exciting development and one which will make a positive impact on the Flowcrete South Africa business in the Western Cape.
“Thanks to this development we’ll be able to provide a better, faster service to an area of the country that’s undergoing remarkable growth in its construction sector.
“The expansion signifies a major investment in the Cape Town office, which consisted of a small sales team with four employees prior to the launch of the new buildings.”
The new site provides a logistical advantage to the operation of the warehouse and sales office as it is located in the Airport Industrial hub close to the Cape Town International Airport. This makes it more convenient for clients to travel to and from the facilities and will improve the delivery time for flooring solutions.
Three new roles were created at Flowcrete South Africa to ensure effective management of the warehouse, a Warehouse Supervisor, a Sales Order Processing (SOP) Administrator and a Warehouse Assistant & Driver.
Flowcrete South Africa also has a head office and manufacturing centre in Durban with another office and manufacturing centre in Johannesburg. The combined South Africa operations are capable of providing high quality flooring solutions to the whole of Africa.
