Scribante Concrete has purchased 35 FAW mixers and tippers, bringing the total of FAW units in its fleet to 89.

Scribante Concrete expands FAW fleetPushing for growth in an economic downturn takes tenacity, carefully calculated risk profiling and considerable research, all “flavoured with a touch of foresight”. These are the attributes displayed by Scribante Concrete, a division within the larger Scribante Construction Group, as the company expands its reach in Gauteng with the commissioning of two concrete batching facilities – one in Muldersdrift and the other in Laezonia.

Alongside some sizeable investment into plant, equipment and staffing, Scribante Concrete has expanded its fleet with the purchase of 35 additional FAW vehicles. Going into operation at the West Rand batch plants at present, the new FAW units include 27 FAW 35.340FC 8m³ mixer trucks, six FAW 33.330FC 6m³ mixer trucks, and two FAW 28.280FT side tipper trucks.

“The Scribante Construction Group saw the opportunity, crunched the numbers and with very careful consideration and planning, decided to invest and expand our Gauteng footprint. We had the chance to acquire the sites for our batch plants. Based on a 50 km radius for delivering our time-sensitive product, we secured suitable construction contracts to support our growing business, as well as enough future prospects to validate our decision to strengthen our position in Gauteng,” says Troy Petzer, operations manager at Scribante Concrete.

“We have been running FAW mixers and tippers in our fleet for about three years now. Based on the total cost of ownership calculation, together with superb aftermarket service and support, we chose FAW as we replaced older vehicles in the fleet and started equipping for the West Rand plants,” adds Petzer.

“Besides the vehicles, we have refurbished and installed the batching plants, appointed a management team for sales and customer contact, done staffing for concrete production, also for our maintenance and service workshop, and acquired drivers for our new extended fleet. In total we have created over a dozen new jobs so far with this expansion,” he says.

“As we have done in the past, Scribante Concrete will attend to basic service and maintenance on the vehicles on-site. To this end we have appointed two technicians. All technical training, driver orientation and testing, as well as 24/7 parts supply is provided and guaranteed by FAW SA whom we have come to trust. This was a crucial element in our purchase decision,” says Petzer.
