Leicester based CI Logistics has expanded its export portfolio by supplying bespoke materials handling equipment to Defy Appliances (Pty) Ltd., the market leader in South Africa’s appliance market.
The recently completed contract is for a trolley conveyor which has now been installed in Defy’s Ezakheni factory in Ladysmith. The Ezakheni facility manufactures chest freezers and refrigerators. Defy has two other factories, one in Jacobs, Durban (which is also the company’s head office) and a third facility in East London.
In the past CI Logistics has manufactured and supplied two overhead power and free conveyors, both 58m evacuation loops, for the factory at Ezakheni, together with a power only overhead monorail conveyor for the company’s paint plant in Durban. This new piece of business for the Ladysmith facility, is the fourth contract Defy has awarded CI Logistics.
