Cape Town market Viking distributor, Positively Pumps, is pleased to announce that it is opening a water division in Johannesburg. Having recently been appointed the official distributor of Vesta Pumps (Europe) for South / Sub-Saharan Africa, the Positively Pumps team look forward to introducing its high service levels and inclusive range to the Johannesburg market.

Gary Sternsdorf, pump market veteran brings over 15 years experience to the Johannesburg branch, Brian Cumming, owner and director of Positively Pumps Cape Town and Sternsdorf worked together for a number of years.
