New Renttech SA sales outlet offers customers greater convenience and service levels

Renttech South Africa, a leader in the sales and rental of top quality welding, lifting, rigging and construction equipment, has moved its Port Elizabeth branch into a new, spacious, state-of-the-art sales outlet.

 The move is in line with Renttech South Africa’s strategy of expanding and consolidating its national footprint both nationally and regionally. This also follows the opening of a number of other branches to meet customers’ requirements for welding, lifting and construction equipment sales and rental wherever they are in South Africa; and in neighbouring sub-Saharan African countries, such as Namibia.

“Situated in Haupt Road, this new outlet offers our valued customers from Port Elizabeth and the greater Eastern Cape region even greater convenience and improved access to our full range of equipment and solutions,” says Gerrit van Zyl, Managing Director of Renttech South Africa.

With two busy port terminals, the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ) and the ongoing development of the region’s industrial sectors, Port Elizabeth is the dynamic economic gateway to the Eastern Cape region. Positive growth locally – and in Renttech’s own business – were key factors prompting the move at the beginning September, van Zyl explains.

“With our new premises, we can now offer superior levels of service, knowledge and expertise to Port Elizabeth’s many industrial sectors, including automotive, food and beverage, agricultural, gas and maritime maintenance,” comments van Zyl, adding that the new site will improve Renttech’s market penetration and consolidate its footprint in the region overall.

He points out that Renttech’s success is based on the three pillars of integrity, performance and customer service: “Many of the local industries we supply are key revenue earners for the region and with the opening of our new sales outlet, we reaffirm our commitment to providing the highest levels of service excellence to these sectors.”

At the new premises, customers will be able to purchase or rent world-leading welding, power generation and lifting equipment. As an example, the company offers an extensive welding solutions portfolio, including the internationally renowned ranges of metalworking products from Harris, Lincoln and Uniarc.

The new 1200 m2 facility is well-staffed by a skilled team of welding lifting and industrial equipment sales specialists.” At Renttech, we invest substantially in our people through long-term training initiatives,” van Zyl continues.

Today, every Renttech team member offers customers invaluable consultation and advice – supported by in-depth knowledge of every item of equipment.

Apart from these services, the new centrally situated premises will assist Renttech’s staff in their provision of timeous on-site technical support. “We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our customers in maximising the efficiency and productivity of their businesses, by providing industry-critical solutions from our vast range of tried and tested products,” he comments.

“We look forward to welcoming our many local and also regional Eastern Cape customers to our new premises in Port Elizabeth. We guarantee that they will benefit from the improved access and exposure to our best-in-class industrial products and solutions,” van Zyl concludes.
