Cummins Southern Africa is to relocate its Southern Africa Distribution Business to Waterfall Logistics Precinct – Gauteng’s new innovative work, live and play destination in Waterfall. The new premises will form part of the Waterfall connected hub which offers a fully integrated lifestyle that embraces the ultimate work-life balance.
“Today we celebrate the start of the journey towards our new offices as we break ground for construction to commence. Our relocation to Waterfall Logistics Precinct is of critical importance to our business as it positions us at the epicentre of Gauteng’s most dynamic and strategically located business hub. The Waterfall Logistics Precinct environment aligns with the importance Cummins places on work-life balance that we encourage for our employees,” said Thierry Pimi, MD of Cummins Southern Africa.
The new premises, developed in line with Waterfall’s sustainability approach and principles, will include the Cummins Southern Africa Regional Operations, the Master Rebuild Centre, the current Cummins Longmeadow Branch and the Technical Training Centre; and will boast spacious premises of approximately 15 355 m2. The long-awaited state-of-the-art building is due for completion in October 2018 and the various operations will occupy the building in stages until full occupancy is achieved in early 2019.
Office space will be designed to accommodate different preferred work styles of employees, aligned to the Cummins Smart Office Standards, whilst ensuring individuals and teams enjoy access to space and tools to ensure maximum productivity. The workshop and warehouse facilities’ layouts will accommodate the flexibility required to adjust to market trends and future growth. The equipment in the workshop will be best in class to ensure professional deliverables.
Waterfall Logistics Precinct’s central location in relation to Pretoria, Johannesburg and Sandton, as well as its proximity to major highways, transport nodes, and the Gautrain Station, makes it an ideal location for businesses looking for safe working premises and an appealing working environment.
Cummins Southern Africa is headquartered in Johannesburg, with wholly owned branches in South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The company also enjoys a wide range of dealer networks in support of its widespread Southern Africa footprint.
