The sod turning ceremony marks the official start of construction for Cummins Southern Africa Regional Offices (CSARO). The 15 000 m² facility comprises of a service centre, engine rebuild centre, warehouse with specialist installations and office space and will be completed in October 2018. The building will allow Cummins to consolidate its operations in the region by bringing its Master Rebuild Centre, Gauteng Operations Workshop and Southern Africa Technical Training Centre all under one roof.

“This new facility will help bolster our operations in Southern Africa through the greater overall efficiency that comes from combining multiple activities under one roof.  Furthermore, the benefit of having our office and servicing centres in the same location streamlines operations, enabling us to deliver even better on our promise of excellent customer service and support,” said Thierry Pimi, MD of Cummins Southern Africa.

Waterfall’s Logistics Precinct, visible from the N1 and Allandale interchange, provides state of the art warehouses, distribution centres and offices. The campus’ strategic location provides unparalleled ease-of-access to national logistics routes and transit infrastructure. 

“We are excited about embarking on this journey with Cummins and believe that, once complete in November 2018, the Cummins Southern Africa building will be a pioneering development within our logistics hub.  We welcome Cummins and are thrilled they chose a home with us,” said Pete Mackenzie, Head of Development at Attacq.
