Centurion expands beyond the borders

May 2009 News

Centurion Systems is on the move and growing at a rapid pace both nationally and internationally, despite the economic situation around the world.

At the end of last year Brandon Horn, Centurion’s export department, has been very proactive in the African market. He recently visited a number of countries in East Africa including Ethiopia, where the company exhibited its products at the 13th Addis Chamber International Trade Fair in Addis Ababa. His visit confirmed that Africa is fast becoming a very important market for Centurion and should be for other local manufacturers in South Africa. It is our closest export market and we should be developing trade in the region in preference to other international companies from Europe or the Far East.

As part of Centurion’s campaign to educate companies worldwide on its locally manufactured products, Kya Sands branch manager, Johan Lessing, embarked on a training programme at the beginning of this year for clients in New Zealand. He commented on how companies there regard South Africa as one of the leaders in the development of security products. Regrettably, due to the crime situation in our country, we do have possibly one of the best testing grounds for our products.

Back home in South Africa, the company has opened a new branch in Bloemfontein in March this year, with Riaan Kemp taking the helm. Additionally, Craig Evans will be heading up the Pinetown branch. Evans takes over the reins from John Brennan who has left Centurion to set up his own security supply business in Margate.

Moreover, due to its continual expansion, Centurion has outgrown its head offices in Northriding, and will be moving to a new home across the road, increasing its production facility from 7500 m² to 15 000 m².
