Having outgrown its previous Port Elizabeth branch, Goscor Lift Truck has since moved into a larger premises that allows it to better service its ever-growing customer base.
As a result of increased business activity at its Port Elizabeth branch, Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC) has outgrown its previous premises, prompting the recent move to a larger facility. The new branch is now located at Cnr Swartkops & Broad Street in North End.
Branch manager Mike Burley says the new facility doubles the size of the previous premises, which translates into better stockholding for all equipment ranges in the GLTC stable. “This also means better response times for all aspects of the business, translating into increased uptime for our customers,” says Burley.
“Some eight months ago we identified there was need for us to move into a larger premises. However, finding a facility that met our expectations took longer than anticipated, especially in a market where buildings with the sort of infrastructure we wanted are not readily available,” adds Burley.
The new facility will provide a comprehensive range of services, all the way from sales, rentals (both short and long term), to parts and services, for all the various products under the Goscor Cleaning and GLTC umbrella.
Goscor Cleaning offers products such as Tennant, Ghibli, Kaivac, Delfin and Maer. Meanwhile, GLTC is the sole distributor of leading forklift brands, including Crown, Doosan, Bendi, Hubtex and BHS Battery Handling Solutions, allowing the company to offer a full basket of materials handling and warehousing solutions to its customers.
The PE branch’s growth is as a result of the company’s outstanding product range, superior service and support ability and, very importantly, because of its ability to supply a range of machines for various applications. GLTC is a one-stop shop for all material handling needs, enabling customers to increase their efficiencies by dealing with one supplier for all their materials handling needs.
The new facility conforms to ISO 9001: 2015 standards. GLTC recently achieved an upgrade from ISO 9001: 2008 to ISO 9001: 2015 and OHSAS accreditation, making it the only forklift company in South Africa to have achieved both the standards. The certification is testimony to the company’s implementation of a quality management system in which all processes and procedures have been carefully designed and quality-tested according to best international standards.
