KEEPING YOU UPDATED ABOUT OUR LATEST ACHIEVEMENTS, INNOVATIONS, LAUNCHES & MORE
Foreword of Ludwig Geyser - CEO of Putzmeister South Africa
WHERE THERE’S A WILL…THERE’S A PAVED WAY…
A new shocking reality had us step into an alternate universe this year when we all woke up to a world bought to a near complete standstill. An unknown world where a very stark reality seeped across all countries, all ages – snaking through every class distinction, indiscriminately coiling around and highlighting the fatal flaws of an otherwise “normal” society.
Suddenly we were isolated from family, from friends, but what we thought was most important - from work. The very fabric of our society was tested, measured – and in some cases found wanting - as businesses came to a halt - establishments, upon which we depend, for livelihood, we were all fighting to survive.
Out of disaster however, (which so often happens), came innovation. New ways were sought, tested and implemented to stay afloat and, in the current construction and building industry market as each day of isolation and lockdown dragged by with little to no income into an already strained trade, Putzmeister SA (Pty) Ltd is still standing – however, not without casualties.
OUT OF THE FRYING PAN INTO THE MORTAR.
We would like to think, we are still here during this epidemic because we have a superior product, which has been proven over and over in the high-rises, skyscrapers and monuments and everyday infrastructure of every town proudly displayed across the globe.
Our technology far outshines any of our competitors in terms of making work easier and more efficient and enables us in servicing the small companies as well as the highly commercialized enterprises. It promotes not only their bottom line, but optimizing operations and quality of work.
On top of this Putzmeister machines have been pushing boundaries of what can be done in the industry since the invention of the very first Mortar machine which started operating in the 1950’s.
We have some of the best sales teams globally – selling in some of the most difficult encumbered markets always pushing the envelope to not only sell products, but really assist with solution orientated outcomes to ensure ideal yield for the investment in our expertise and equipment. Furthermore, we strive to achieve the best possible after sales service, maintenance and parts delivery.
Our new reality however has taught us although we do endeavor for all the above - we understand, that all this is only possible through the support of loyal clients and customers.
Approximately 70% of the entire world has been immersed into total lockdown for different periods of times over the last few months, you, our dear valued clients (which all of a sudden isn’t just a start of a generic letter but takes on a whole new meaning), have been with us every step of the way, through every delayed machine built or late delivery of a very urgent part – our customers have truly rolled with the punches.
NOTHING IS CAST IN STONE THESE DAYS - IT’S SET IN CONCRETE
Putzmeister SA (PTY) Ltd, therefor acknowledges you. We humbly thank you, that although we are all going through this difficult economic and financial crisis, it is with your patience and understanding that we are able to find new ways to deliver the quality of workmanship and products you have become accustomed to.
We salute you, our dear customer and will continue to assist you to accomplish your every building dream, always seeking to be more creative, inventive and unparalleled in our assistance to all your future endeavors. May the construction and building projects be ever in your favour.
