Steady demand for specialist plant hire services is driving the growth of Benoni-based service provider, Webcon Mini Plant Hire, requiring expansion of its fleet for several different requirements.

Owner, Sakkie Davies, says demand for smaller plants such as TLB’s has driven growth recently, adding that customers are moving to suppliers of quality equipment who can take a load off their shoulders by maximising equipment availability and solving their onsite challenges. Relationships are King and companies like Webcon are thriving on repeat business and the strength of their offerings.

The strength of relationships also extends to suppliers and Webcon recently ordered a further five machines from its long-time supplier ELB Equipment with the purchase of four GEHL GBL X900 TLBs and a single Sumitomo SH210 excavator. These are expected to soak up demand from its clients across the country and neighbouring countries.

Webcon has equipment as far as Zimbabwe, Kathu, Malelane and Durban within the construction industry making quality a priority especially when it comes to maintenance and breakdown cost elimination. “ELB Equipment offer package deals in addition to parts and services, making it a one-stop shop for all my earthmoving need”.

During the handover of the machines, ELB area sales manager, Elmien Bolleurs and the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) team collectively handed over the five earthmovers to Webcon, bringing them to 55 earthmovers in total. This comes to show that good business relationships could affect the long-term growth of an organization.

Sakkie and Michelle Davies were met with warm congratulations as they came to collect the machinery. Webcon has been a loyal customer of ELB Equipment since 2010. “ELB’s price is right, their service is affordable, and their parts are available even in the aftermarket.” Sakkie continued to say that ELB Equipment goes out of its way to sort out any issues without hassle. Bringing their part in maintenance and support, ensuring continued business from Webcon and other loyal customers.

“Commitment to teamwork is the key to any successful business.” Sakkie continued to explain how every aspect, every part, and every person plays a vital role in smooth operations, he noted how important it is to be ready to work especially when it comes to the point when it’s your turn. “Without one thing, everything could fall apart.” In conclusion, he added ELB Equipment makes money and Webcon makes money it’s a win-win resulting in the understanding that without solid relationships in place, success is much harder for a business to attain.
