The modern fleet maintained by Goscor Access Rental, combined with its high availability and uptime, has resulted in Tubular Plant Hire enjoying an important rental relationship with the company since April 2013.
Tubular Plant Hire is a division of Tubular Technical Construction, wholly-owned by Tubular Holdings, the driving force behind a diversified group, representing one of the largest and most respected privately-owned construction companies in South Africa at present.
To date, the company has utilised Goscor Access Rental products successfully at the Kalagadi Manganese Mine in the Northern Cape, and at the Kusile Power Station in Mpumalanga.
“Our focus, both abroad and within the local marketplace, is aimed predominantly at the manufacturing and construction sectors. The group, together with its competent, motivated management teams, is responsible for an array of specialist services,” Craig Schneiderman, Tubular Holdings, Group Procurement Manager, comments.
These services focus on mining processes, planning management and execution of turnkey projects, and the supply, installation, and commissioning of electrical and instrumentation infrastructure.
“Our rental relationship with Goscor Access Rental focuses mainly on the hire of telehandlers and cherry pickers,” Schneiderman explains. This relationship was established as long ago as April 2013, with the hire of two cherry pickers, namely a Genie S85 RT and a Z135 RT.
Schneiderman cites the main benefit of standardising on Goscor Access Rental equipment for its rental needs as the company maintains a modern fleet, ensuring it has the latest technology on hand. This also means that the machines are replaced constantly, and therefore are virtually brand-new. This translates into high availability and uptime, which is critical for increased productivity.
“What sets Goscor Access Rental apart is also that it is able to provide comprehensive service and support across its countrywide footprint. In addition, we enjoy a good relationship with the senior management, which is always available to offer any assistance or advice. The company also has fully-trained and skilled technicians on hand to facilitate any repairs or maintenance,” Schneiderman elaborates.
“I salute my team for always going the extra mile and exceeding customer expectations, as amply demonstrated with Tubular Plant Hire. The years of 24-7-365 from every team member has resulted in such successful partnerships, and we look forward to growing this fruitful relationship,” Andrew Kendrick, Managing Director, Goscor Access Rental, comments.
Commenting on the current state of the mining and construction industries, Schneiderman is confident that tenders for major projects will begin to see the light of day from July this year.
“There is significant potential for actual work in the pipeline, which means the market will be busy again by year-end. There is a much more positive outlook at the moment than there has been for the past two years,” Schneiderman concludes.
