3D Cape, News premises

With a very successful 2016 under its belt – including assisting its newest client Philip Morris International take home the Exhibitor of the Year award at Sasol’s Ignite trade show – 3D Cape has positioned itself for further growth in 2017.

The turnkey exhibitions and experiential solutions provider in the Mother City, which also created one of the most memorable interactive exhibits for Philip Morris International at the recent Rockin’ the Daisies festival, has added several new services to its portfolio, as well as up-scaled its premises in anticipation of a bumper year ahead.

According to Andrew Keymer, Director, 3D Cape the company has grown far quicker than originally expected over the past six years, particularly its custom division. This put pressure on available resources and was in danger of putting the brakes on 3D Cape’s expansion.

“Although we secured the neighbouring building in our previous premises in Westlake over two years ago, this proved to be a short-term solution as the space restrictions were curtailing our growth potential,” he said.

“We therefore opted to make the move to a larger space a full year ahead of the timeline we’d prepared when we first began trading.”

3D Cape’s new 3,155m2 building is a standalone unit on a 5,300m2 plot in Capricorn Business Park near to the Marina da Gama, and provides extensive loading and logistic facilities through five load bay areas as well as ample staff and customer parking.

“Simply put, the benefits of the move include better capacity, control and quality; better staff recreation areas and more ergonomically efficient working areas; and there’s room for expansion. It all adds up to us being able to add greater depth to its turn-key solutions portfolio in 2017,” he said.
