Peikko has opened a new sales office in Johannesburg, South Africa. The sales office concentrates on serving customers in South Africa and its immediate neighboring countries; areas with strong traditions in precast construction. Peikko’s first target is to provide precast and cast-in-situ concrete connections in the area. Previously Peikko’s sales activities in South Africa have been operated by its sales office in the UK.
The first team member of Peikko South Africa, Mr. Daniel Petrov, has solid experience with the South African construction industry, especially with the precast sector. He also has a deep understanding of Peikko’s products, having acted as Peikko’s client in multiple projects.
“Peikko is currently present with its own operations in over 30 countries worldwide. We want to commit to the countries where we are located with our own office and personnel. The construction sector in Africa is growing, and we have now started the journey by covering a part of this large continent. We are excited to support our current and new customers efficiently with our South African team,” says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
