Operations Manager - Phil van der Westhuizen
The newest branch of the Bolt and Engineering Distributors (B.E.D.) Group was started by B.E.D. veteran Phil van der Westhuizen, who has been with the Group for over two decades and had previously successfully headed up the Rustenburg branch.
As Operations Manager for the Tshwane branch, Van der Westhuizen brings his substantial experience at management level – which also includes national sales experience – into the day-to-day requirements of running a new entity, which has been officially in operation since October 2021.
The key service sectors for this branch include steel fabrication and erection, the automotive industry, aviation and telecommunications.
The area serviced from the Tshwane branch includes towards Clayville in the south and Bronkhorstspruit in the east, up to Hammanskraal in the north, and on the western front right up to the Gauteng border with the Northwest Province at Garankuwa.
“This branch was planned for some time,” notes Van der Westhuizen, “and we have been pleased by the welcome that we have received from our loyal customers in the region! We look forward to going from strength to strength – and becoming a fully operational unit within the Group! In doing so, we will bring the Tshwane area the steadfast and exceptional customer service for which the B.E.D. Group is known.”
