SANY, a leader in southern Africa’s heavy-duty earthmoving machinery market, has opened a new branch in Richard’s Bay to better serve its customers in the region. The branch is the global leader’s third in South Africa and forms part of the company’s expansion plans for the region.
The expansion into KwaZulu-Natal is motivated by the province’s vast scope of industries. The branch will serve the construction, materials handling, mining and forestry industries and will supply front-end loaders, excavators, graders and dump trucks. Backhoe loaders will be available in 2024.
The Richard’s Bay branch offers full customer support and after-sales services with the aim of maximising optimal uptime for customers. Support for after-sales services will come from the company’s state-of-the-art Johannesburg warehouse, which houses over R170 million in spare parts. The branch’s team of fully qualified professionals has extensive industry experience to facilitate sales and services.
The 500 m2 premises is in the city’s industrial hub at Unit 4, Elephant Park, 62 Ceramic Curve, Alton, Richards Bay. The location of the branch allows the company to establish itself among the region’s most reputable OEMs and big industry players. It also enables customers working in the targeted sectors to easily reach the branch to shorten downtime.
SANY Sales General Manager, Jay Moodley, conveyed the company’s optimism and goals for the branch, “SANY is committed to growth, and we view this new branch as a strategic move toward growing our presence in local industrial activities. Through customer prioritisation, we aim to grow our visibility and expand our overall footprint”.
