A leading water solutions provider is set to celebrate the opening of a new branch in Port Elizabeth.

The opening of the new facility is a direct response to extend the service offering to a growing customer-base in the Eastern Cape.

“We have been active in the Eastern Cape for many years, servicing the area from our branch in Cape Town through a locally based representative;” explains Bennie Thiart, Sales Director at Xylem SA.

“With this experience, we decided that a direct approach to the market with full on-site, local representation will benefit our existing customers and allow us to diversify into the Eastern Cape market”; he adds.

Top-line products

With the official opening of the new branch on the 2nd of September, the Xylem-team has identified special top-line products that will greatly benefit clients in a variety of sectors.

The newly released Lowara e-NSC high efficiency end -suction pump range will be available from the branch. This range has been specifically developed for the agricultural and building services markets.

In addition, residential offerings on off-the-shelf small booster and submersible pumps will also be available to the public.

For the public utilities market, the Flygt submersible waste water pumps with sustained efficiency will also be available on site. On top of this, the new branch will have a local rental fleet to help with construction, dewatering and municipality bypass requirements.

More in store

The Port Elizabeth-branch will service the entire Eastern Cape; focussing on Port Elizabeth as metropolis, but also delivering remote services directly or through strategically placed partners.

However; the opening of the new branch in Port Elizabeth is only the start to the company’s commitment to developments in the Eastern Cape.

“Xylem SA is not only committed to helping solve water (pumping and treatment) issues; but also to contributing to the local community and economy as the new branch grows and generates more jobs and business opportunities”; says Thiart.

With its expansion and reified presence in the Eastern Cape, Xylem SA is poised to assist clients in every facet of the water cycle; with a deep commitment to local communities and unparalleled support to clients.
