Stone-Stamcor boosts Cape Town operation

1 November 2019 News & events

In order to enhance its service to its Western and Eastern Cape customers, Stone-Stamcor has embarked on a business improvement project for its Cape Town branch. The new location of the branch will make it easier for customers to interact with the company while also improving product collection and deliveries in the region.

With a long history of local manufacturing and product distribution dating back to 1942, the company has prided itself on supplying the best product range to the electrical and mechanical industries, along with premium customer service to its clients throughout South Africa.

Stone-Stamcor’s head office is located in Edenvale in Gauteng, where its 4000 m2 of factory and administration facilities support the company’s national footprint and manufacturing operations. The company is ISO 9001 certified and is a SANAS accredited BBBEE level 2 certified company.

Moving to a secure office park

In the 1990s, Stone-Stamcor moved its Cape Town office to Maitland, from where it operated for over twenty years. The company has now taken up residence in Unit A4, in the Pinelands Office Park. Sales manager, Mark Talbot explains that the move will officially take place in November 2019, but the company will be running both the old and new offices until all the administrative tasks are completed. “Our clients will find the new premises are much improved in all aspects. The location provides for easier access, and parking will no longer be a problem due us having more space for visitors as well as the strict access controls at Pinelands Office Park.

Full range of products available

Of critical importance to the Stone-Stamcor customer base in Cape Town, Talbot says that the full range of products the company sells will be available from the Cape Town branch. In short, this means that products from the electrical and mechanical divisions of the company will be on sale, along with repairs and advice on the whole product range. The Johannesburg office will function in a support role where needed, but customers’ first port of call will be the local branch as the Cape Town staff is well trained and able to assist with any queries customers may have.

The Stone-Stamcor Electrical Division manufactures a comprehensive range of copper and aluminium compression cable connectors (lugs and ferrules) for fitment to cable conductors. Stone-Stamcor has been manufacturing locally for decades and has made a name for itself in the market and established its brand as one associated with well designed products (which are tested to the SANS IEC 61238-1 standard) as well as reliability and customer service. The locally manufactured products are supplemented with other types of connectors for earthing and customer specific solutions for special applications. Stone-Stamcor also supplies a full range of compression crimping and cable cutting tools.

The Mechanical Division represents several renowned international companies with high quality brands. It can supply a range of industrial gearboxes, motors, linear motion control products, converting industry products and rotating unions, to name a few.

“We may be moving, but as far as the product range and service from Stone-Stamcor is concerned, it’s business as usual. Once the move is completed, it will be business better than usual, a statement we will prove and reinforce every day as we go forward with our growth plans for the Cape Town branch and the region as a whole,” concludes Talbot.
