Serco recently bought property in Johannesburg with the intention of increasing capacity, improving production efficiencies and giving customers better service.
Graders have cleared the new 13,4ha site near Boksburg and the installation of municipal services are almost complete with upgrades to electrical, water & sewer capacity being undertaken to accommodate the expansion. Concrete has been thrown for Phase 1 of the exciting development.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of this year and will include twelve under cover bays (1 745m2) for repair services and a further 3 480m2 for new body manufacturing, which is double the size of the present facility in Jetpark.
The present facility has been stretched to capacity and the additional space will facilitate room for growth and is expected to be ready for business early in 2014.
