Home grown business celebrates milestone
Rustenburg – The Trellidor brand is well known countrywide in the barrier security arena. What may not be so well known is that it is a proudly South African business that has been around for 40 years. It was established in Durban in 1976 and its top selling product four decades later is still based on the company’s original retractable security gate design.
“What’s changed over the years, is our security gates’ strengthening features. These have been added as new technology and materials have become available and as crime levels have risen along with increasingly sophisticated criminal break-in methods,” said Sarie Gordon, manager of the Trellidor Rustenburg franchise.
Trellidor Rustenburg is an integral part of the Trellidor story. Franchise owner Robin Spencer-Scarr opened the franchise in 1996, over 20 years ago, and his team has been protecting homes and businesses in the area ever since.
“We’ve built up a group of professionals that is focussed on providing excellent service and the best security products to local residents. Many of them have become friends as they’ve moved home or business premises. They come back to us for their security barriers because they know we’ll give them the right advice and help them choose the correct products from our range,” said Sarie.
This attention to customer service has lead to Trellidor Rustenburg winning a number of Trellidor franchise awards over the years. The franchise has often been top in its category, competing against franchises around South Africa. Sales Consultant Duane Henderson is a consistent winner of the Trellidor Consultant of the Year award.
“Although our Trellidor Retractable security gates are still our best sellers all these years later, many customers prefer our lifestyle designs as they provide an excellent level of protection combined with appealing features that work well with modern living.”
These include Trellidor Security Shutters, new on the market and lovely to look at in addition to being a proper security Louvre shutter. Trellidor Clear Guard offers clear views through their stainless steel mesh panels and Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium shutters can be automated and remote controlled.
“We would love customers in the area to visit our showroom and see the full product range for themselves. We’re happy to discuss the features of each design and help them secure their homes or businesses within their budget,” said Sarie.
