Improved facilities to boost

Global Roofing Solutions (GRS) has moved both its Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal operations to bigger, better locations.

Leading metal roofing manufacturer, Global Roofing Solutions (GRS), has relocated two of its operations, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, into new, state-of-the-art facilities situated in Epping and Mount Edgecombe respectively.

This move, says company managing director, Marius Smith, follows significant growth by the company over the past two years and the need to invest in additional capacity to meet GRS’s expansion strategy.

“In Cape Town, GRS has moved from Killarney Gardens into bigger, improved premises in the well-known industrial area of Epping,” Smith states. “This infrastructure covers over 7 000m2, of which about 6 000m2 is under roof. Millions of rands worth of stock and four production lines were included in the move, which has enabled the production team to prevent any downtime and ensure continuity of supply,” he adds.

In Durban, Marc Arnould, general manager for GRS KwaZulu-Natal, and his team relocated from an old part of downtown Durban to new premises in Mount Edgecombe, just outside Umhlanga on the North Coast.

“The new building is superb. It’s very prominent, easy to locate and makes the right statement to the local market, namely that GRS is bigger, stronger and ready to deliver on our vision of delivering exceptional outcomes,” he says.

Perfect positions
While selecting the new sites, the company specifically looked for bigger, highly visible premises that are easily accessible for customers and suppliers.

“GRS has an aggressive growth strategy in all our regions of operation, including the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. The new facilities are well-suited to accommodate this growth, with multiple loading bays for improved loading and delivery, overhead crane facilities, improved manufacturing flow and ample office and support infrastructure,” says Smith.

“We also have space to establish cash sales centres for walk-in customers in the general building market. Coinciding with the two new locations, GRS has also expanded its mobile mill operation, specifically for its popular Klip-Tite product, with further growth anticipated.”
