STIXO-Signage Supplies

Graphix Supply World has had a successful year so far, proudly reporting expansion and growth in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town for the first half of 2012.

The dynamic GSW team has been busy in the past six months, exhibiting at expos and open house events, hosting its Africa Road Trip and announcing its new distributor launches. With a rapidly increasing customer base and growing product portfolio, GSW has employed new staff members in all three offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, in addition to appointing three new distributors in Namibia and Central and East Africa.

GSW attributes it’s success to a 24 hour work around the clock approach, and a commitment to service delivery. Dedicated technical and support teams undergo continuous training, to keep abreast of new product developments and technology.

Managing Director, Robert Franco, said, ‘We are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far – to be able to report growth in a recession is truly an accomplishment. We want to say a big thank you to our customers for their support, and our suppliers for helping us become Africa’s number one supplier of digital print and cut solutions. GSW strives to supply quality solutions at affordable prices. Our in-house finance solution has assisted customers to purchase new technology to stay competitive, in an economic climate where it can be difficult to obtain finance from banks.’

GSW Welcomes Mark Albert
Since joining the GSW team in 2011, new operating systems have been put in place by GSW’s dynamic General Manager, Mark Albert. Hailing from the FMCG industry, Albert comes with a wealth of experience in operations management and stock control in a fast-paced service-orientated industry.

From Strength To Strength in GSW Durban
One of GSW’s biggest success stories this year is the growth of the Durban office. Since new management took over in 2010, GSW Durban increased turnover and improved customer service and support. This year, the GSW Durban office moved to larger offices to accommodate larger stock levels, and offer a dedicated demo centre.

GSW Mimaki Africa Road Trip
New product offerings from Mimaki in 2012 have resulted in a great demand for the Mimaki technology across Africa. The GSW Road Show, which was recently in Kenya, will be in Angola, Botswana, Ghana and Zimbabwe in the next couple of months.
