Continuing with the German brand Mipa, and Vican’s locally produced products such as Vollux, Superlight, Glaker and Noval, and strengthening of their distribution network around the country, Automotive Refinisher decided to venture closer to home here in Gauteng to see how Vican’s brand’s rapid expansion is doing right on our doorstep.
The fast growing professional coatings system from MIPA in Essenbach, Germany, operates out of six manufacturing sites around the world and is fast making an impact on a global scale thanks to the affordability and quality of the product their systems have to offer. Likewise the range of Vican’s VOLLUX 2K, Primers and Clearcoats – plus their dedicated team of technical sales experts – is fast becoming the preferred choice for the automotive paint distributor in Africa, reason being – consistant quality and value for money brings end users back to their suppliers time after time.
We visited QJ Paintworld to see what it is exactly that has helped them grow so fast and what it is that the company are doing right as they have grown in leaps and bounds since they opened their doors in 2013.
QJ Paintworld, run by Quinton de Kock, has a great reputation with all of their 300+ customers. They are proud to say that they supply and deliver a great product at a value price as well as provide excellent customer service. Their “We’ll do anything to keep our clients happy,” attitude means they go above and beyond the call of duty to maintain great client relations. A logical secret to their growing customer base.
The company operates out of Alberton North, from a beautifully restored historical building that was built in 1906. QJ Paintworld employs 19 people and they have three delivery vans that work around the clock to maintain excellent service levels. This is tangible from the moment you enter their reception and you’re greeted with smiles all around.
Their most popular products with customers is the Mipa basecoat range as well as their own 2K QJ Paintworld range produced exclusively for them by Vican Manufacturing at their high tech facility in Johannesburg. Quinton says that this range has ensured that his Company grows everyday as they offer value for money and great coverage. Their colour matching service makes use of the Mipa basecoat range quality from Germany, and are happy with the speed at which work gets out, thanks to the fast colour identification and ease of use from the Mipa system. Product knowledge is right up-to-date with the regular training the company enjoys.
With price being a sensitive issue in today’s market they are pleased to be associated with their partner – Vican Manufacturing. “With our currency fluctuating all the time, we are happy that with our partners we are able to offer our customers great quality at the best price,” said Quinton.
Great service and an excellent product make for happy customers as well as a growing business at the end of the day.
