2019 is almost a thing of the past and what an incredible year it’s been! The Springboks are world rugby champions and this has lifted the mood of a nation that has been struggling to cope with another tough economic year!
It is in these tough times that we are especially grateful to our loyal clients that have chosen to invest in either one (or both) of our two brands, Bobcat and SANY. A vote for either of these two, is a vote for Goscor Earthmoving and our ability to support these products from an aftersales perspective. To this end, we have invested heavily in our parts stockholding and our service delivery capability – all so that we can ultimately provide a better solution to you, our much-valued customer.
Exciting times lie ahead for Goscor Earthmoving and its Bobcat and SANY brands. Year-on-year, our turnover number is 23% up on 2018 and we expect continued growth in this number during the course of 2020. Between now and the end of January, we will be moving our headquarters from our Alrode premises to a hugely improved site in Hughes, Boksburg (the former Basil Read Plant facility on the corner of Denne Road and Romeo Street.) We believe that this will improve our ability to grow our business while at the same time offering an ever-improving level of support to all our customers. Unlike some corporates in SA, Goscor continues to invest heavily in SA and in the brands that it represents. Whilst the economy still faces significant headwinds, we are optimistic about the medium- and long-term future of this wonderful country!
I sincerely hope that you and your loved ones have a splendid break over the festive season. If you’re traveling, do take care on our roads and come back safely in 2020 feeling refreshed and invigorated. Thanks, again, for choosing to work with us this year. We really do appreciate it and we look forward to a cracking year together in 2020!
Barry Owen, MD Bobcat SA and Goscor Earthmoving Equipment
