South Africa: ColVic expands KPS Piping training centre in Johannesburg

ColVic, the leading OPW distributor in South Africa, has more than doubled the size of its Johannesburg training facility due to rise in demand for piping services.

Last update:

After seeing a large increase in market penetration from a zero base to 35% for KPS Piping in seven years, ColVic has decided to expand its training facility in Johannesburg as it targets continued growth in South Africa and other countries.

“The additional investment in the only OPW-accredited facility in Africa followed burgeoning sales of KPS products and growing demand for quality installations among customers,” said Mike Welman Marketing Director at ColVic.

ColVic’s South African training centre is located in Johannesburg and offers theoretical as well as practical training on all aspects of KPS piping, products in the Fibrelite range and related HSSE procedures.

“The increased training capacity enables us to meet current demands and underpin a renewed sales and marketing drive to further penetrate the South African market,” added Welman.

As well as meeting South African needs, the expansion also enables ColVic to consider its options to enter other countries in Africa in conjunction with OPW, according to a company release.
