Product Supply Strategy

Products are supplied on the basis of what the customer wants, not what we “believe” they need. Technicians and sales personnel are on hand to assist the customer with a range of products to match the customers’ requirements.

By using a pull-through strategy within the organisation and adopting a method of “good, better, best” in relation to our product supply, we are able to give the customer the option of choosing a product that best suits their needs and more importantly, their budget.

We source finished products from Europe, Asia, and America, aligning ourselves with key and strategic partners throughout the world who have the ability to deliver the service, products and pricing that our customers expect from us.

In addition to providing our distributors and end users with a competitively priced solution for their needs we also add value by:

  • Engaging in joint marketing
  • Minimizing the customers stock holdings
  • Full conversion facility enabling us to supply customers with tailor made belts-both narrow and wide discs and related products timeously

Bulldog Abrasives (Pty) Ltd handles over 500 deliveries daily within Gauteng and surrounds. We have a fleet of over 20 vehicles servicing our local customers while all national deliveries are executed daily by our national logistics partner DCB Logistics. Deliveries are made to all major areas as well as all our outlying centres, ensuring we meet your service expectation.

Technical Sales

All of our sales staff undergo constant in depth training on all products and their attributes. Seminars are held bi-annually giving all of the suppliers the opportunity to spend two weeks on the road and in the training centre up-skilling the team on existing, revised and new products.

Warehousing

We have been operating from the current bulk warehousing facility since the end of 2006. With over 5000 m2 of storage space , the facility is more than suitable for the warehousing of all products. Other services located at the Andries street premises include the conversion plant, inbound and outbound dispatch areas, administration offices, sales and the training academy.

Training Centre

Our training/development centre is one of a kind in our industry in Africa. It has been established primarily to equip unskilled labourers with skills to enable them to seek employment in any of the automotive, industrial, woodworking or DIY industries. The centre provides them with a real opportunity to find gainful employment and contribute to the Southern African economy.
