Equipment sales have skyrocketed in the Port Elizabeth region where multi-franchise supplier, ELB Equipment recently opened a modern branch and fully equipped workshop in order to meet growing customer demand for its products.
With a wide range of the world most recognised earthmoving, mining and construction equipment the new branch has met lofty projected sales targets since opening its doors late last year. Even before the official opening of the branch at the end of January this year, the equipment supplier had reported sales which include crushers, trenchless technologies and rollers, as well as smaller equipment such as compactors and rammers.
In addition, local sales representatives are finalising several sales negotiations on several larger machines and have been inundated with requests for quotations from local contractors for Government tenders and road construction projects.
According to ELB Equipment’s Port Elizabeth branch manager, Emile Schmidt, sales have far exceeded expectation and has underpinned the timeous entry of one of the country’s favourite equipment suppliers into the Port Elizabeth region.
“Although we have long had a branch in East London with dedicated sales and service representatives calling on customers within the region, calls from the market have grown steadily and we have responded by establishing a modern, fully equipped and well-situated branch in the heart of the business district in Sidwell.
“We have also ensured that we have sufficient space to hold sufficient stock of machines to meet the requirements of the region and customers driving along the N2 in the city will see our signage and demo units of some big machines like our Sumitomo excavators, MST backhoe loaders, Ammann rollers and smaller machines like our Gehl skidsteers and Ammann walk behind compactors,” says Emile.
