Our thoughts and deep sympathies are with all of those who suffered loss during the criminality that played itself out during last week. The negative impact has been felt by many and our focus needs to shift quickly towards rebuilding all damaged infrastructure so that our economic recovery can get back on track and services can be restored to those communities that have borne the greatest impact.
Perspex South Africa closed its operations in KZN and Gauteng during last week, in the interests of our staff’s safety. We recognise the imperative of reopening these branches and of resuming service to our customers in these regions and will be re-opening fully from Monday 19 July.
Our primary port of entry for our imported products is Port Elizabeth / Gqeberha. We have not seen delays in getting stock from the port as is the case from the port of Durban. Our factory is also based in this region, with no manufacturing delays having occurred over this period. Our distribution routes to the rest of the country have not been as disrupted as the N3 between Durban and Johannesburg and we have managed to deliver stock to our warehouses and we continue to do so without interruption.
We stand ready to support our customers and the end-users of our products, as we embark on this mammoth rebuilding task. Our collective resilience has been tested and we have stood firm. Our commitment to our stakeholders and to South Africa is unwavering and we will not be derailed by any attempt to sow discord and cause chaos. In fact, we condemn these misguided actions in the strongest possible terms.
We will rebuild better and emerge stronger than before. Please contact us to discuss how we can be part of the solution.
