Sarens Siba South Africa has expanded its operations beyond Brakpan to Brits, where a new depot will cater specifically to the mining industry in the region. (See more news coverage of the depot here!)
Brits, located in the country’s northwest, is known for mineral-rich mines, including two of the largest platinum mines in the world and the world’s largest platinum refinery. There are more than 20 quarries in the province, with Rustenburg at the centre of mining operations. The areas of Rustenburg, Brits, Marikana, and Bethanie are all poised to benefit from the location of this new depot.
The Sarens Siba depot in Brits includes a yard with offices, meeting rooms, wash bay, maintenance facilities and parking facilities. On site, Sarens Siba offers the following equipment:
The new depot opening was conceived during the initial Covid-19 Level 5 lockdown in South Africa, as Sarens Siba leadership used the time to realign their business model and rethink strategy in the region. While Sarens had successfully been serving clients in civil, power, oil & gas, and construction segments up until then, heavy lifting and transport for the mining segment had always been done on a project and ad-hoc basis.
Seeing this gap in the market, Sarens Siba developed a strategy to fill it and meet clients’ needs where they were. The Brits depot business model was prepared in May 2020 and then presented to the CEO, where it was approved and readied for implementation.
The new Brits depot will be able to serve clients more quickly, decrease delivery times and costs, and be at clients’ doorsteps whenever they require services. Additionally, it offers strategic advantages to clients in the mining industry, allowing them to achieve quicker turnaround times for crane requirement needs, as well as saving on mobilisation costs. The depot also opens the door for maintenance and shutdown activities, allowing Sarens to supply clients with a full scope for their turnarounds.
