Why are accreditations important?
When looking for a company to build your water storage tank, you’re probably going to decide who to use based on the following factors: price, quality and reputation.
While price is important, it is incorrect to base your decision solely on price.
Quality and reputation are arguably more important than price and will give you a better return on your investment in the long-term.
The way to objectively verify quality and reputation is often through accreditations and licenses.
Why choose a local manufacturer?
As a homegrown company, we understand the South African market. We know where to source the most appropriate materials for our manufacturing process. Our technicians are trained to be the top of the industry, and consistently build water storage tanks that ensure our customers are happy with our work. Since 1984, we have developed a reputation in the market for delivering products and services that go above and beyond our client’s expectations. Because we are based locally, we can also provide ongoing maintenance and guidance to our clients, as opposed to them having to request often delayed and costly assistance from an overseas exporter.
Most importantly, because we are accredited and affiliated with South Africa’s most reputable industry regulators, our clients can get an objective opinion, that can guarantee our promise of quality services and products.
