We recently embarked on the ambitious, but exciting process of moving from our current Johannesburg head office into larger and more suitable premises.
As we have been operating here since our inception 29 years ago, there certainly is a level of sadness in leaving behind our birthplace that enabled us to mature into what we are today, a leading bearing and transmission supplier in SA.
As B2K has grown over the years, so have our space requirements. Over the past three years we have experienced office and warehouse capacity challenges, thereby making a move to more suitable premises inevitable.
Since proudly becoming an SKF authorised distributor earlier in the year, our plan is to hold extensive SKF stocks to thus become a large, if not the largest, holder of SKF stocks in the country. We are well on track to achieving this already and our new space will certainly assist.
The new warehouse, with 4 times more stocking capacity and state-of-the-art warehousing and order processing capabilities, will empower us to offer a more streamlined service to our customers. The additional stock carrying capacity will allow us to increase our product range to include additional complementary bearing and transmission products as well as hold more comprehensive stockholding across all ranges and brands ready-for-dispatch. We strongly believe that this move will result in adding more value to our esteemed customers’ businesses and further improve our company’s mantra of ‘industrial supplies simplified’.
Our new Johannesburg head office is located at 1 Fleming Road, Meadowdale, Germiston; a mere 200 meters away from the present premises.
We plan to have fully moved in by the beginning of November 2021 and look forward to inviting our customers, suppliers, and service providers for a tour once we are settled in.
