South Africa Car Wash Installation an Industry First
Tamarac, Florida ’Äì September 19, 2011 ’Äì BayWash Car Wash Systems announced the installation of its first G2 dual-arm, touch-free in-bay automatic car wash equipment in South Africa. Keizin Automotive (Pty), the company's factory authorized Select Service Organization (SSO) in the country, will be installing the G2 in Sasolburg, South Africa. "This will be the first system of its kind in the region" said Keith Conway, Managing Director of Keizin Automotive (Pty) Ltd. "There is a huge, unmet demand for a fast, consistent, high-quality wash and the G2's speed and durability allow us to capitalize on that opportunity."
BayWash is the in-bay automatic division of Oasis Car Wash Systems. "South Africa is an important market with tremendous growth potential" stated Robert Picard, VP of Sales for SONNY'S. "What differentiates BayWash is its philosophy of open architecture engineering, making it possible for our SSO & BSO partners to source all wearable replacement parts locally and deliver the world-class level of support our clients expect ’Äì anywhere on the globe."
Juan Kruger, owner of Classic Car Bath in Sasolburg, South Africa where the G2 is being installed, took advantage of Sonny's Do-it-Yourself Assembly Program. Traveling to the BayWash factory outside Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Juan and the lead technician from Keizin took part in the final assembly of the machine ensuring their ability to maximize its potential in the field.
Keizin Automotive (Pty) Ltd will be exhibiting at the Johannesburg International Motor Show, October 8-16, 2011, at the Expo Centre, Nasrec, Johannesburg with details on their website at http://www.jhbmotorshow.co.za.
