THE H&M Technologies Group in South Africa, as part of its growth strategy, has announced plans to enter KwaZulu-Natal with a newly registered company, H&M Rollers S.A (Pty) Ltd.
The new Pietermaritzburg-based company’s Director Operations Jay Maharaj said it aimed to service a wide spectrum of customers’ roll cover needs from printing, packaging, and textile to steel/aluminium, paper/tissue converting and general industry.
“The H&M Group now has roller covering sites in Gauteng, Cape Town and Pietermaritzburg, KZN and through the backing and experience of our European partners Hannecard and Mitex together with their superior technology developed in the Group’s laboratories, HMRSA will be able have the ability to provide roll covers far superior to what is currently available in KZN,” Maharaj said.
HMRSA Customer Services Lead Vusi Mkize said the company can offer its KZN customers a wide selection of cost effective, application specific solutions.
“Our aim is to consistently supply superior quality products backed up with exceptional service and delivery, maintaining a technological advantage and upgrading when required,” Mkize said.
Maharaj said a key pillar for HMRSA would be to develop trust and confidence among its customers by being professional and transparent.
“There is a change in the environment given the context in which business is conducted today and I believe we, as HMRSA, can focus on the basics. We plan to know our customers extremely well, understand their business, needs and challenges.
“We will provide a solution rather than a product, with up to date technology and excellent customer service backed up with good technical support at a competitive price,” Maharaj said.
