The setting up by MV Switchgear and WPI Power Solutions of a branch in Rustenburg two years ago to better serve the platinum mines in the area has paid off handsomely.
Thanks to substantial growth of the branch’s business, at the beginning of May this year it moved into larger and better-equipped new premises and increased its staff threefold to cater to the growing demand.
The branch, which previously occupied only an office and had a staff of three, now has premises with a total floor area of 500m2 to accommodate a sizeable workshop, a spares store and offices, with a total staff of nine comprising Branch Manager Cas Coetzer, two admin people, five field service technicians and a safety officer. The workshop is equipped with a drill press and test equipment to provide for minor repairs and tests on the spot.
The new branch is situated in Unit Nine, 10a Mangaan Street, Rustenburg, and the phone numbers are Tel (014) 538-1474 and Cell 082-785-5459 (Cas).
