Blue Giant Names Two South African Dealers
Blue Giant Equipment Corporation, Brampton, Ontario, has signed up two new dealers to represent the company’s dock equipment and material handling equipment portfolio in South Africa and surrounding regions.
SA Vertical Lifting, Germiston, Gauteng, specializes in the planning and design of integrated dock solutions for warehouses and distribution centers in South Africa and the surrounding markets. Additional areas of expertise include overhead doors, residential elevators, and hoisting equipment. Director Allen Lotter says, “We recognize the importance of an international brand, and Blue Giant brings us that recognition as well as the quality docking equipment that we need to compete in our local markets.”
Liftsure Equipment CC, Jet Park, Gauteng, has been a major supplier of parts for South Africa’s industrial truck industry since 1999. The company is the local agent for Curtis instruments, PGDT controls, and Mastermover pedestrian‐operated tugs, and is also a primary distributor for Albright contactors. “The name Blue Giant still echoes throughout the South African market,” explains Director Donald Pharoah. “We are proud to be partners with a globally recognized company and expect great things to happen.”
“Global demand for Blue Giant dock equipment continues to accelerate, which necessitates our expansion,” says Steve Greco, Blue Giant’s Director of International Sales. “South Africa is a growth market with lots of opportunity, and through our partnerships with SA Vertical and Liftsure, we can ensure that Blue Giant’s premium dock solutions make warehouse operations there safer and more efficient than ever before.”
