Goscor group GM - Africa Randhir Haripersad
Goscor Lift Truck Company (GLTC) has appointed Brenham, a general industrial sales and service organisation, as its distributor in Gaborone, Botswana.
Brenham is owned and managed by Ronnie van der Nest and David Nunes, both highly experienced in the servicing and selling of machinery.
Randhir Haripersad, Goscor Group GM - Africa, is optimistic about the possibilities in Botswana with Brenham in place. "Both Ronnie and David are motivated and experienced and we know that they will do justice to the Goscor range of materials handling equipment (MHE) in Botswana."
He adds that Goscor and Brenham are up against some well-established competition in the region. "But with our proven product excellence and Brenham's skills, I believe that we will make significant inroads for local distribution and service in a short space of time," says Haripersad.
Van der Nest expects to take significant marketshare in the materials handling space with the new supplier. "Even though we only very recently concluded the rights to distribute GLTC product here, we have already been inundated with enquiries. There is no doubt that the Goscor reputation for excellence in both product and service precedes us in this country and we will use this to build an outstanding distribution and service business."
Brenham will start with a few Goscor products and, initially, will sell mainly the Doosan and Crown ranges of equipment.
The appointment forms part of Goscor's thrust to increase its footprint in the region and follows the recent appointment of several new distributors in neighbouring countries.
