From the CEO’s Desk…



announced yesterday that CJ BEARINGS & CASTINGS
would be opening new branches in the North West Province
as well as the Free State Province.

"We have been considering opening another facility
in the North West area for some time now,
as the mining industry remains buoyant there
and we have been searching for suitable premises for some time.”
said Osman. "Finally we found what we were looking for
at 15 Cobalt Street Zinniaville in Rustenburg”

It is expected that this facility will be in full production by first quarter of 2017 and will employ about 15 people at the beginning.

"Similarly” explained Osman “there has been a resurgence of mining activity in the Free State and to service this market better we have found suitable premises at No 1 Shocket Street, Parys, which will become operational durig the second quarter of 2017".

The ever increasing cost of fuel, toll gates and power as well as the demand for quick turn around on repairs by the mining industry, were motivating factors in regard to these expansion moves.

“CJ has built our business on quality service and by moving closer to our customer base we will be able to serve them better than ever before as we are committed to improving our level of service and support for our customers in their regions” concluded Osman.
