Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC) has appointed dealers in Mauritius and Botswana.
Spearheaded by its activities in Mauritius over the past 100 years, the family-owned Taylor Smith Group, which will distribute GLTC's Crown, Taylor-Dunn, Hubtex and Bendi brands, is a dynamic organisation with a reputation for excellence throughout the industries in which it operates.
Based in Port Louis, the Taylor Smith Group, with its team of more than 850 people, is a well-known employer on the island, offering high standards of professional services across its wide range of diverse activities including financial, marine, manufacturing, geotechnical, logistics, distribution and much more.
In Botswana, the new distributor is Wessels Hire - which trades as Coastal Hire - which has been in operation since 1999. Located in Gaborone and with six branches country-wide, Coastal Hire specialises in the supply of construction equipment to the building, construction and mining industries.
Coastal Hire owner WP Wessels says that the Goscor Lift Truck range is a perfect fit for his company. "We are used to dealing with large capital equipment with our customers which include private, public, mining, construction and forestry companies. Many of Goscor's products will fit nicely into this existing customer base and we look forward to extending into new areas like the traditional warehouse materials handling sector," he says.
Goscor Group GM for Africa Randhir Haripersad says he has confidence that Coastal Hire and Taylor Smith will boost the Goscor business. "Both companies are professional operators and understand how Goscor likes to do business. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them both," he says.
