In October this year, Kwikspace, Africa’s largest supplier of prefabricated mobile units, opened a branch in Richards Bay to better serve its Kwa-Zulu/Natal client base. The yard currently holds multiple modular buildings comprising of the following:
- 7m x 7m classrooms
- 6m x 3m Ablution Units
- 6m x 3m Open Plan Office Units
- 6m x 3m Storage Unit
“Kwikspace can, however source any unit that is required”, says Kwikspace Regional Manager, David Francis
The expansion into Richards Bay was the result of company’s growing relationship with rail, port and pipeline company, Transnet. The company, through its Durban branch supplied units to Transnet, with significant growth and expansion taking place in ports in the Richards Bay area, Kwikspace took the opportunity to capitalise on the rental unit market in the area as it already has customers operating in the region.
The company hopes that the business opportunities acquired through various industries in Richards Bay will lead to further expansion in the Northern coast. “The opening of this new branch presents the opportunity for the company to supply to the greater KZN area and to grow our market”, says Francis.
Kwikspace’s new branch is currently the only rental fleet of prefabricated relocatable buildings in Richards Bay.
