Buying Vesconite products in Namibia has become easier with the establishment of a wholly-owned Namibian subsidiary.
Known as Vesconite Bearings Namibia, the new company will stock frequently-ordered hollow bar, solid rods and plate for ease of ordering and distribution into the Southern African country.
“Coastal Couriers, a leader in the Namibian courier industry, will assist us,” notes Nadia Swart, who is tasked with managing Vesconite’s Namibian business.
“We will keep stock shapes at Coastal Couriers in Windhoek, and distribute from there,” she says.
The new company will focus on the marine, mining, manufacturing, agriculture, forklift, abattoir and pumps industries, among others.
“Currently we have customers in many African countries, including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya and Nigeria,” says Vesconite Bearings CEO Dr Jean-Patrick Leger of Vesconite’s African supply and growth strategy and performance on the continent to date.
“The challenge is transporting goods across borders, and clearing customs,” Leger states.
“We look forward to the creation of the free trade agreement across Africa, with a view of this opening up better opportunities for trade,” he says.
