Leading compressor and generator hire company, Rand-Air, is determined to provide uncompromised service to their customers, as well as reliable and well-maintained equipment. As part of this commitment, the company recently opened a branch in Saldanha Bay, in an effort to expand their reach across the country. Rand-Air has been servicing a number of industries for the past 44 years and have built a strong presence across South Africa.
The need to support the the steel industry and the related contractors around the sector such as marine contractors, sandblasters etc. was imminent. Rand-Air recognised this as an opportunity to better service this market. “We service a niche market and we want to make our equipment more readily available where there is a need,” explains Louwrens Erasmus, General Manager at Rand-Air.
Already making a positive impact, Rand-Air is proudly involved in the Saldanha Bay Industrial Development Zone (SBIDZ). A project that aims to create a world-class, internationally recognised and respected South African marine engineering hub.
South Africa accounts for 40% of the entire African continent industrial output, and 25% of its GDP. This is why Rand-Air sees the importance of retaining and expanding existing business across the country.
“Stimulating the local economy is of immense strategic importance to Rand-Air. We understand that expansion is the most effective, most economical and most sustainable way of creating jobs which is paramount to a healthy economy,” Erasmus continues.
As the economy continues to develop, it has become more important than ever for large operations to extensively focus on their primary core-business. Outsourcing is a popular mechanic to enable this as it facilitates operational efficiencies. Not only does outsourcing alleviate the pressure of maintaining equipment but it is also the most cost effective option as there is no capital outlay required.
Rand-Air remains fully committed to delivering latest-technology equipment that meets customer demands. This is coupled with a highly qualified team that are driven to provide exceptional customer service around the clock.
