THE HISTORY OF ACCESS FLOORING IN SOUTH AFRICA & the role SUPERTEC PLAYS
Before the birth of Supertec, various members of our management, staff and shareholders were working for a variety of companies in the ceiling, partitioning and access flooring industry. These companies include Macsteel Interior Systems, Lafarge Gypsum and BPB Gypsum. In the early 90’s Macsteel Interior Systems started to manufacture the internationally acclaimed Tate System under license. Once this license had expired, they continued with this panel production but soon found it extremely difficult to remain competitive, as the demand for Access Flooring in South Africa did not justify keeping the plant running.
At that point in time a decision was made to look abroad for a flooring solution. Whilst still working for Lafarge Gypsum, Anton De Bruin (now joint owner of Supertec), joined forces with one of their largest clients Jonathan Bates (Bates Access flooring) and together redesigned the Tate panel. This is how the Lafarge Access Flooring System was born. Since then this panel has been manufactured in China by a very well known producer supplying major projects all over the world including Europe and America . During the redesign and manufacturing of the New Tate Lafarge panel, they introduced the FS System to South Africa as an interim solution. This system has now become a well accepted alternative and has it’s place well cemented in the current market.
In 2013 Lafarge sold their Access Flooring Division to another flooring company who has since been importing and selling the Lafarge Panel that was co-designed by Supertec owners and Bates Access Flooring.
We are pleased to announce that a vastly improved version of this system, now known as the ‘Multilock System’ is available directly from Supertec. The Solidlock System (dubbed as the “Only True Multifunctional System”) designed and tested by Supertec at SGS laboratories, as well as the FS System are too made available directly from Supertec. Supertec is the only South African owned manufacturing company producing the full range of ceiling systems, partitioning systems and access flooring under structure in South Africa.
Supertec was started in 2008 and has grown at a rapid rate of 35% per annum. Along with a manufacturing division hosting more than 14 production lines in the centrally located Alrode factory, we have opened several distribution branches including Alrode, Wynburg, Troyeville, Vaal Triangle and Centurion. Supertec also manufactures OEM product for several other distributors in Gauteng and Kwazulu-Natal. We also have representation in Zambia, Botswana and Namibia with future plans for expansion which includes Cape Town and various SADC and COMESA countries.
