SEW-EURODRIVE relocates to new E Cape premises
SEW-EURODRIVE PE's new premises at Aldo Business Park in Greenbushes.
SEW-EURODRIVE South Africa’s Port Elizabeth branch has relocated to Unit 4, Aldo Business Park, Old Cape Road in Greenbushes, reflecting both the growth of the branch and the importance of the Eastern Cape region, according to Branch Manager Francois Sieberhangen.
The Port Elizabeth branch services the entire Eastern Cape region, with customers in the automotive, food and beverage, tyre and rubber, wood and timber and fishing industries, in addition to OEMs and resellers. “We look after some of the largest accounts nationally, and are a major contributor of servo drive technology, AC drives and decentralised drives,” says Sieberhangen.
Initially established as a service-and-repair branch, with minimal assembly taking place, the branch has since grown significantly, necessitating its move from the original 300m2 premises to the new 800m2 building. The move was completed in a couple of days, with little to no disruption to our customers, according to Sieberhangen.
“The new premises allow us to implement internal SEW-EURODRIVE requirements. Furthermore, it provides space to employ additional staff. The addition of a mechatronics engineer allows us to improve our technical support and field service to our customers. An additional administrator removes some administrative duties from the sales staff team, who can now focus on processing customer enquiries more efficiently,” says Sieberhangen.
