Kemtek Opens New Gauteng Head Office And Service And Distribution Centre

Kemtek Imaging Systems held a ribbon cutting ceremony on 25 June to mark the launch of their new head office in Hertford Office Park in Midrand. The new premises provide Kemtek’s customers, suppliers and employees with a safe and accessible hub where they can have a seamless experience. Kemtek has also moved their distribution and service centre to a more spacious premises in Germiston.

The event’s proceedings began at 4:30pm, with guests and staff networking and mingling in the head office’s spacious showroom. The formal proceedings kicked off with the ribbon cutting ceromony. Mags Govender, Kemtek’s head of print, Graham Comins, Managing Director at Kemtek and Dave Savage, CEO at Abcon Group and Non-Executive Director at Tadvest, all partook in cutting the ribbon and officially initiating the new offices.

Comins gave a special thanks to the staff in attendance for their work and commitment to the company. ‘It all comes down to a huge amount of commitment. Commitment in where Kemtek is going in the future,’ said Comins. ‘We’ve gone through a transition over the last year that has changed the way Kemtek is going to approach the market, from both a supplier and a customer point of view.

Savage spoke on behalf of Tadvest and the attending share holders stating, ‘This is one of the buildings that are within our portfolio, co-owned by Tadvest. But the building is actually not that significant. The premises looks fantastic, but the significance is the team.’ Savage spoke on Kemtek’s healthy growth trajectory throughout the years, stating, ‘If you are not re-engineering yourself and repurposing yourself on a continual basis, you will die. That’s just how the world operates these days. And fortunately, Kemtek’s team has been revitalised and repurposed.’ He concluded by reassuring the attendees of Tadvest’s commitment to Kemtek. ‘We’re in it for the long-term and for the long haul. And that’s why we’re excited to be part of Kemtek.’

When asked about the reason for the head office move and what significance it may have on the customer experience, Comins stated, ‘Kemtek was in an area of the city where it was difficult to interact with customers and suppliers and to bring people to our premises, because of the urban decay in the area. We realised that, in order to have the proper experience with our customers, suppliers and employees, and to offer them the best opportunity to be effective, we needed to move into a far better area. From a customer point of view, it is important to be able to come to an experience centre that’s not only convenient, but also safe, accessible and flexible. Not only for product launches, but for interactions, training, etc. We needed an environment that was suitable for those activities, and we’ve designed our building around being able to achieve that.’

Comins also touched on the new service and distribution centre located in the S&J Industrial Estate, 144 Ganymede Street, Germiston, stating: ‘There were a couple of reasons for the move. Our business was structured in such a way that we needed a certain amount of space and a certain amount of flexibility and accessibility in that area. But one of the key aspects in the decision was looking after our employees: to enable them to move to a premises that was better suited to the business, but that also had the least impact on our service and warehouse teams.’
