WILEC, Africa’s largest supplier of input materials and provider of cutting-edge technical solutions,has played a strategic role in supporting the electrical industry with its wide range of products, including products service the rotating machines and transformers industry. As a prime business that has successfully operated for over 70 years, WILEC has future proofed itself and remained resilient in adapting to the modern world it operates in.

A recent display of this came at a time which posed a challenge for many businesses and individuals alike. The state of disaster following heavy rainfall and flooding that occurred in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal in April 2022, caused significant damage to the area’s infrastructure and businesses, resulting in severe economic losses.

Among the many businesses which were impacted was WILEC’s Durban branch. Following a significant refurbishment lasting several months, WILEC is proud of its team’s efforts in ensuring that the branch is once more in full operation. A completerestocking has also been undertaken to keep to our brand promise of being a solutions-driven partner to our industry and to minimize waiting times for our customers. A recent open day provided an ideal opportunity for WILEC to welcome both new and existing customers from across KZN and to introduce (or reintroduce)them to the company’s wide range of products.

“On behalf of the entire WILEC family, I’d like to congratulate our team on the successful refurbishment of our Durban branch. The reopening of this branch has not only been an indication of our strength as a business, but also allows us to continue providing exceptional services and solutions to regional customers,” said Ronelvan Straaten, the company’s national sales executive. “We are committed to maintaining a nationwide footprint, and this branch is a key part of keeping that promise,” she added.

WILEC will continue to deliver solutions under all three of the company’s product categories namely electrical, tapes and mechanical, and drive the sustainability, innovation and quality of service agendas for the industries they service.

Existing and new clients are welcome to visit WILEC’s Durban branch situated at 13A The Avenue East,Prospecton, Durban. The branch’s phone number is 031 569-4883.

The company is pleased to be able, once again, to offer local access to ongoing technical support that WILEC is known for.
