On average, the colour will last eight weeks under normal conditions, up to 12 weeks on dormant lawns or until mowed.

These are arguably the most powerful and most parallel clamps in the world. The three large removable (if you want to clean or replace them) pressure caps are resistant to glue, paint and solvents. High quality 2K composite handle with soft plastic insert for comfort while working. The rail protection pieces (made from impact resistant polyamide) prevent glue dripping on to the rail. With TK-6 table clamps you can easily fasten the rail protection pieces to a work surface. End-clip ensures clamp sits parallel to work surface and is removable to reverse sliding arm for use as spreader.

The March event was a show within a show, for Free Jumping horses consisting of three classes - 2-year olds, 3-year olds and 4-year olds, with a Grand Champion selected from the winners of each class. To explain what Free Jumping is all about, if done correctly, it provides fantastic benefits to horses of all ages. It is a means of evaluating

The HSS PointTeQ for fast drilling in metal, the HSS Ground for precision, the HSS Impact enabling robust drilling with impact and the HSS Cobalt giving the user excellent lifespan when used in stainless steel. The Cobalt drill is the only drill from the range, which is capable of drilling into stainless steel.

INCREASED OUTPUT The fast drilling rate of the HSS PointTeQ reduces friction with the material. The tip heats up less than comparable metal drills with standard grinding. It does not become blunt as quickly and the wear-and-tear is reduced. This ensures higher productivity and a longer lifetime for the metal drill. Furthermore, the drill flute is oxide-coated to reduce friction and, therefore, speed up chip removal, making drilling additionally easier and speeding up the work progress.

WERNER GROUP

AS A MANUFACTURER, the group supplies industrial brush ware for applications such as abrasive work, deburring, paint and rust removal, adhesive and paint preparation, and much more. Products are distributed through the wholesale industry to the hardware and industrial market segments. Today, the Werner family still owns and runs the business, with its fourth generation of Werber’s involved in continuing operations based on its original family philosophies. The business prefers to reinvest in its people and products. This, in addition to its German manufacturing roots, lends itself to a product range of excellent quality. The business has 70 years of experience and knowledge in its current management team and its family value of integrity is a cornerstone of its business processes. As a uniquely South African organisation, development and support for its customer base is always available in an expedient manner. The group has no import protection from the cheaper Chinese merchandise and yet still controls a large portion of the industrial market particularly in the area of specialised and industrial wire brush ware. “We believe our focus on quality and durability has protected the organisation from losing marketshare. The Chinese may be cheaper, but when one considers how many brushes one would have to buy to match one Werner brush, the group’s product ends up significantly more economical. Furthermore, being local one doesn’t

The group addresses this by investing in its staff and maintaining a culture of education and skills development for its employees. “Our business still retains its original address even after 70 years, 36 Second Street in Booysens Reserve, Johannesburg. The only change is that we have expanded and the business encompass most of the block,” concludes Werner.

I started off with a small fastener company in the late nineties, I often refer to Pack’d Fasteners as my boot camp, given that I had to fulfil numerous roles, but this lead to my ‘love-affair’ with the DIY retail industry. After seven years I joined the Argent group and my eight years’ service included numerous GM positions within different subsidiaries namely, Jetmaster, Cedar Paint, Castor & Ladder and Toolroom, giving me critical experience and insight within the manufacturing and logistics side of things. I also completed two degrees whilst working for this group. When the opportunity came to join the Monster of the Industry, namely Matus in 2015, I could not resist as initially it was a pure sales role. Three years were filled with great learnings and included the buyout from Bidvest, giving me a taste of the corporate world. Joining Gedore, is a dream come true, as I am working for a truly global, but still a family owned business with a strong emphasis on the customer and innovation. Gedore Germany also invests heavily in South Africa – we have a factory in Durban employing more than 300 people. The Gedore brand is the ‘darling’ brand of South Africa in my opinion with huge aspirational links and much more opportunity to grow not

only our domestic market, but also the rest of the continent.

What do you enjoy most about your job? It is still early days, given I only started in January this year, however the culture is what I am currently enjoying the most.

What is the hardest part of your job? I guess it will be to educate the consumer regarding value and quality. Two traits seldom found in lower priced brands.  

How long is your commute to work and how do you manage your travel time? I travel about 45 minutes in the morning and 55 minutes in the afternoon. I enjoy music and listen to podcasts. It is also a great opportunity to debrief the day in your head, ensuring – but not always – that when you get home, you can be fully focused on the family.

What do you do to relax? Time with my family (6 year old son and 8 year old daughter and my lovely wife), good whisky and a wood fire ranks the highest on my list of relaxation options.

Where do you see yourself in a few years? Hopefully still with Gedore, but with much larger marketshare on the continent and a better educated consumer.

What advice do you have to share with regards to this industry? Stay customer centric, if you find that you or your business becomes too arrogant, change quickly!

What have you learnt that you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self? Don’t sweat the small stuff and put family first.

ON THE MOVE MANAGEMENT

Be in control

Track and Record All Keys and Assets (TRAKA) offers a complete management, control and reporting solution for all vehicles, the keys, equipment and facilities. TRAKA OFFERS MANUFACTURERS, retailers and distributors intelligent key and equipment management through its electronic automated key management system. In any manufacturing, mining and facilities management environment, the highest levels of efficiency and health as well as safety compliance are essential. With this in mind Traka has developed this specialist solution to dramatically improve shift start-up times and overall productivity rates. This is achieved through Traka’s unique iFob. An iFob is a piece of technology containing the employee’s license and permission levels written to it. It allows access to specified vehicles, machinery and equipment. Each iFob has a unique identity. Effectively this makes everyone accountable and safeguards the drivers from misuse. THE SYSTEM IS OPTIMISED FOR: Fork truck access control: Its unique iFob can be programmed to a user, vehicle or a key. The key is sealed to the iFob and accessed through a pre-programmed number, safeguarding access and operation of forklifts. This is done by only giving staff with the correct credentials access. The software handles the identification through identification technology including biometric, facial recognition or RFID card readers. Authorised users release a programmed iFob and use the key as normal, but a full audit trail, time stamp is generated and stored. Control access to dangerous machinery: The unauthorised use of machinery can have serious implications for safety. To ensure that appropriate measures are taken to protect operators and achieve maximum health and safety, Traka provides Machine Start functionality. iFobs can be used as electronic keys to control access to a wide range of other machinery and equipment. When used for this purpose, strict control over who can access and operate dangerous machinery is enforced, and a full audit of user activity can be maintained. HOW DOES MACHINE-START WORK? Machine-Start isolates the power APRIL 2018 DIY & INDUSTRIAL TRADE NEWS

source to dangerous machinery only allowing trained operators to use it. Operators identify themselves to the Traka key cabinet where they are issued an iFob, which acts as an intelligent key that is inserted into a receptor socket within the Machine Start unit. Providing the user is authorised to operate that piece of machinery it will power up for use. This technology can be used for hoists, cranes, lathes, drills, presses and conveyors and anything else that would be safer with controlled access. Fork truck collision detection: An optional shock sensor can be installed on the data logger, in any vehicle, to sense and record if the truck has been involved in a collision. Drivers are now fully accountable for the equipment in their care. License validation: The software enables driver license details including photographs to be stored in the Traka database. This enables administrators to run reports to see who is authorised to drive specific vehicles, and also when their licence expires. The system will also automatically remove a user’s access to specific equipment when their licence expires, but continues to allow them to access keys, where they are still valid users. Industrial equipment and plant vehicles: The programmed iFob can also be used as an electronic key to control access to a wide range of other equipment and vehicles. When used for this purpose, strict control over who can access and operate dangerous machinery is enforced and a full audit of user activity can be maintained. Acceptance, fault reporting and fuel or cell balance: Controlling who can access and operate a fork lift and delivery trucks, is only part of the solution. Knowing that staff have completed all pre-operational safety checks and accepted the vehicle, and that a record of the event is automatically stored in the database, along with an audit of all trucks driven, is powerful management information. Should any fault be found at shift

start-up, or develop whilst the truck in in use, the system will be able to lock the vehicle and then automatically allow credentialed repair staff to exclusively have access to that vehicle, preventing others from using it until a repair has been carried out.

Anti-Drive-off prevention solutions: Traka’s loading bay and dock door safety solutions are easily installed, drive-off prevention systems designed to stop vehicles prematurely leaving the Goods Out bays of a busy distribution centre.

Alcohol testing: Traka’s key management system can be integrated with an optional, approved alcohol tester. This can be compulsory for every user or set to test a random sample. This is achieved by disallowing the key release, should the levels be above acceptable levels, and an alert can be sent immediately, to an administrator.

Loading bay management: A solution for enhancing safety and streamlining processes at distribution centres ensuring complete control over the loading bay and prevent accidents. The solution starts an automated sequence of safety checks and audits that will control who can operate and open a loading bay, restrict vehicle movement until the area is safe and collect door usage information including who was operating it. The cabinet will only release the user’s keys once the loading is complete and the dock door fully closed.

Fork Truck and Fleet Management: Traka intelligent access management enables the control, monitor and protection of a fleet seamlessly. Central to this system is the administrative software, which records which driver has access to which vehicle and when. Key and Equipment management: The system who has access keys and equipment onsite. Traka’s intelligent management systems enable the business to fully audit all transactions, and restrict who can access important assets, and when. The cabinets are easy to use and offer sophisticated control, allowing keys, key sets or equipment to be allocated to specific people, or made available to authorised groups of users. The system can also be set to block access to users whose licence has expired. Arm mounted terminal management (AMT): Being able to locate arm mounted terminals and scanners quickly, store them properly and ensure they are in working order enables shifts to start quickly and run more efficiently. Its on-truck AMT storage and charging system, enables AMT’s to be housed in a locker solution, making use of the management software, which can only be accessed by the approved truck operator. The locker solution can integrate charging, ensuring that there is always a functional scanner, PDA, GPS and other devices when needed.

Dock door control: Dock-Safe is a unique, easily installed and affordable solution that requires drivers to position their vehicle at the loading bay and isolate the vehicle themselves before the relevant dock door can be operated. A full audit trail is recorded within the iFob. The power behind the Traka solutions lies in the advanced software. The system can operate on a single computer or a network, it offers multi-language use, provides extensive real time data capture, interfaces with most third party access control applications and uses a SQL database to provide extensive access level controls and transaction history. A comprehensive range of management reports can be generated quickly and easily.

It’s a

proposition So what does it mean? It means everyone in the transaction wins and yes, it really is possible!

Let’s explain... Firstly, we have a great range

We have 33 years’ experience and over time have crafted a nifty range of pre-packed fasteners that cater for the unique needs of Southern Africa. Our range is comprehensive and include 1 943 SKUs. We take a scientific approach to packaging and pack quantities in order to satisfy everyone from the small DIY’er to the large contractor. We are a one-stop shop, making procurement a breeze, saving you time, money and lots of effort.

Good looking, clever and quite popular

We have attractive header boards with HOW-TO product information. The stands are grouped by category and are colour coded so that customers can help themselves – saving your sales people valuable time. EUREKA is a well-known and trusted brand.

Services included

Shelving is supplied free of charge and we can even price the stock for you in the form of on-the-shelf labels. We professionally assist with procurement, sales history and our sales representatives do stock counts when re-ordering. Your stock is delivered on uniquely designed delivery frames for quick, accurate and easy check-in. In addition, you don’t need to worry about merchandising as this is done by the driver when we deliver. We deliver nationwide to more than 2000 customers across Southern Africa using state-of-the-art tracking and distribution systems. All these services help you and your salespeople to have more time available with your customer Everyone wins...


Give me more SPACE!

We understand that floor space is valuable, expensive and limited and therefore must be used optimally. We are masters at optimising floor space and on average get 110 SKUs per running meter, depending on your shelf height. How’s that for packing a punch! This means a great return on space used and it means more choice for your customer.

A win-win for everyone!

More than the [bag] you see on the shelf The Magic that happens in the background...

We are logistic experts and use advanced information technologies for seamless integration between processes We practice responsible procurement, keeping enough stock (and safety stock) in our warehouse to ensure you get what you order. Our average fill rate for the last 3 years is 99%, meaning you don’t need to place back-orders. We have quality controls at all major points in the process, from sourcing to placing orders up to delivery.

BUT how can you do all of this and still be affordable?

Easiest way to explain this is that the whole is bigger than sum of its parts. When there is synergy between systems and business units including Economies of Scale, it is possible that 1 + 1 + 1 = 5.
