Rock Solid Industries (RSI) are major leisure and commercial canopy manufacturers for both OEM markets and operate with the approvals of Ford, Nissan Isuzu, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and VW, among others. They have recently moved to an all-new purpose manufacturing hub in Mkondeni, KZN.

“Our major problem with servicing customer demand,” says Mike Voss, managing director, “was that no matter how many overtime hours we were working, the company needed to fulfill over 500 canopies on our back-order lists.  We had just outgrown our premises. The move to the new, state-of-the-art facility was planned over a year ago and we have driven our per month output to around 3 500 anticipated capacity output levels, just to cope with demand.”

These orders have come from an expanded export demand plus increased dealer sales in South Africa. International quality demands have also placed new process demands on RSI SmartCanopy’s with countries like Australia, Chile and the European markets seeking absolutely the ultimate finished quality on both leisure and commercial units.

With the new Aer-o-cure process on the automotive paint side the facility has introduced a new era of increased speed production output where units are prepared, painted, baked and assembled all in optimum conditions. “We are also pleased with the paint bulk circulation package and the newly developed refinish primer and top coat system from Valspar, which is now up and running and delivering a top-quality finish,” said the hands-on production director, Rob Aldworth.

RSI have pioneered a quality stainless steel canopy with over 150 skilled personnel now working at the Mkondeni facility. The company are now part of a global supply chain for manufacturers with full ISO9001 quality standards in place. They also offer their own in-house design engineers along with prototyping and product design capability.

The RSI top quality brand is well respected and has been established on hard work and pride for what they produce.
