About Belgotex Floors
Belgotex Floors manufacture and supply flooring solutions including carpeting, vinyl, artificial grass, underlay and rubber from its 100,000 square metre factory based in Pietermaritzburg, Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Since its inception in 1984, the company has expanded its manufacturing capabilities to offer an extensive portfolio of products to service specific market segments including the residential, commercial, civic and sporting sectors.
The company’s continuous investment in modern plant machinery and technology (that improves both operational efficiencies and product offerings) laid the foundation for manufacturing excellence and established and maintains its competitive advantage in Southern Africa.
This culture of innovation and appetite for excellence and advancement has become the hallmark of the Belgotex brand today.
“Innovation is part of our DNA and we aim to be the first to market with the latest hi-tech advances. We stay abreast of international trends and developments and capitalise on the production capabilities of our equipment, constantly exploring new production processes and developing new product ranges,” explains Chief Executive Frank Moffat.
As a vertically integrated company with a strong focus on innovation, quality and environmental imperatives, their backwards integration structure gives them complete control over production processes.
From raw materials and extrusion to tufting or needling, through backing to warehousing and distribution, their entire set up is designed to maximise operational efficiency whilst minimising any negative impacts on the environment.
“We are continuously upgrading our machinery, introducing new ranges with up-to-the-minute technology, and pushing the limits for operational efficiency,” explains chief operations officer Kevin Walsh.
New, advanced equipment offers better quality at higher speeds, a more diverse product range at various price points, as well as cost-effective manufacturing processes that are more ecologically sustainable.
Not only do these activities keep Belgotex at the forefront of technology, poised to capitalise on new opportunities and improve their competitiveness in the local and global flooring markets, but they are critical for the future sustainability of all its stakeholders.
