Truco to expand its Johannesburg-based factory

Truco’s Johannesburg-based factory will expand to increase production capacity.

In order for Truco to meet the growing local and international demands for its products, it will expand its Johannesburg-based factory to 9 000 m2. The factory will produce stainless steel braided hose and large bore rubber hose (also known as the slurry hose). It will also produce a range of Truco’s new products, including a T36 premium latex rubber lined hose for ultra-high wear wet abrasion, ceramic-lined hose, hose with wear monitoring solutions and monitor gun hose. Truco aims to have the new section of the factory fully functional by the end of the 2nd quarter of 2024 and thereby increase hose production to meet global demand.

“We are proud to be creating additional job opportunities in the Chamdor area,” says Martin Cassidy, Director, Truco. The expansion of the Johannesburg-based factory will increase its capacity by approximately 25% and will cement Truco as the largest, most comprehensive hose supplier in Africa,” he concludes. Zweli Nqulu, Team Assistant, adds to the excitement of the expansion by saying, “I see positive changes within the business and more opportunities for growth. The new recruitment process gives us all fair opportunities to apply for positions and the expansion amplifies growth opportunities.”

Truco will increase its production capacity of stainless steel hose, amongst other products.

The expansion of the Johannesburg-based factory is only one of Truco’s expansion projects for 2024. Truco has opened a sales office in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire, to strengthen its presence in the West African market. Guy Roland will head up to West Africa Sales from Abidjan. Partick Kongolo, Africa Sales Manager, will also relocate from Truco’s Senegal office to Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), to operate the new office in the Copperbelt region and run sales outside of SADEC.
