The HUESKER Group is strengthening its commitment in South Africa in order to not only target new customers in the future, but also to expand existing business relationships. By registering a subsidiary and moving into warehouse and office premises, the world’s leading manufacturer of geosynthetics and technical textiles, headquartered in Gescher, North Rhine-Westphalia, is consolidating its existing business in the region. The founding of HUESKER South Africa PTY Ltd. marks a significant step for the globally active company, which is now expanding its worldwide presence to 11 international subsidiaries.
The HUESKER Group has been active in South Africa for more than 10 years. The aim of the newly founded subsidiary is to organize relationships with contractors, consultants and authorities even more efficiently in the future. Important milestones for this are the central location and the highly qualified local employees, which will make it possible to serve customers even more efficiently from now on. As part of the “Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment” (B-BBEE) program, HUESKER has a correspondingly high level classification in place.
“The South African market is of great importance to HUESKER, so we are looking forward to growing further with a local presence,” said Dr. F.-Hans Grandin, CEO of the HUESKER Group. “This strategic decision not only underlines our commitment to South Africa, but also creates a platform for possible expansion into neighboring regions in sub-Saharan Africa.”
“With the expansion of our global presence through the establishment of a subsidiary in South Africa, we are focusing on supporting our customers as a reliable partner for sustainable and economical construction in the engineering fields of earthworks and foundation, road and railways as well as environmental technology and mining,” added Sven Schröer, CSO of the HUESKER Group. “Our direct local presence not only makes it easier for our existing strategic customers and key accounts to do business with us, but also for potential new customers.”
