DEVELOPMENTS AT GOSCOR ACCESS SOLUTIONS IN SOUTH AFRICA
Some news coming in from South Africa where Goscor Hi-Reach and its sister company, Goscor Access Rental had now been merged into a new entity, Goscor Access Solutions. The company had also been made part of the InServe Group, a large industrial services group that includes crane hire, scaffolding & scaffold steel processing, trailer manufacturing and fuel pump & distribution divisions. Newly appointed access CEO, Andrew Kendrick, says that the new structure will enhance their opportunities and improve Group synergies. They have recently relocated the two main offices to new premises in Midrand, between Pretoria and Johannesburg, ideally located for the Gauteng province, economic hub of South Africa. The new business will be providing all access and telehandler services including rentals, sales of new and used machines, parts distribution, training, servicing and repairs across South and Southern Africa.
Goscor Access Solutions chairman and industry veteran George Landsberg also announced the acquisition of Aerial Lift Rentals in Port Elizabeth, a deal that had been in the making for a very long time. The company will be incorporated into Goscor Access Solutions as their Port Elizabeth branch with Regional Manager, Brent Viljoen looking after it as part of the Cape Region. The previous two shareholders, Brian Paddey and Ronnie Buis are set to retire from the industry although Brian will still consult to the business for a period.
