FTS Safety has partnered with Talisman Hire Franchise owners Kevin Mackridge and Andrew Cox to introduce 3 more shops in Ballito, Pinetown and Pietermartizburg.
The launch of the new FTS Safety Express shops comes of the back of the success of their flagship Riverhorse Valley Retail store and Director Pantelis Patric Eleftheriou hopes that the partnership will provide customers with greater convenience.
"While customers can order off our website, often when it comes to clothing such as boots or gloves you want to try the item on before you purchase. Having additional locations makes sense and there are obvious synergies with Talisman.
Talisman Hire is an established Tool Hire Business with over 63 stores country wide and has recently expanded into Africa. It was started with the concept of providing a one-stop tool hire service with quality gardening and construction equipment.
Talisman Hire Franchise owners Kevin Mackridge and Andrew Cox believe that FTS Safety Express Stores will offer further benefits and convenience to their clients, customers can now have their gloves, boots and hard hats delivered to site with their plant and equipment.
The express stores are all located within the Talisman Tool Hire premises, the three that are launching on 1 October are in Douglas Crowe Drive Ballito, Victoria Road Pietermaritzburg and St Johns Avenue Pinetown.
Each of the stores have a carefully selected range of key safety products, including PPE Workwear such as safety boots, gloves, overalls, gumboots, hardhats, safety goggles and rainsuits.
"We wanted to ensure that we keep product knowledge at the forefront and we have worked hard to develop packaging that is informative and indicates the uses for each product."
FTS Safety's Eleftheriou hopes that the express stores can in time offer a complete safety and uniform ordering platform that would take advantage FTS Safety's full concept store, allowingTalisman customers to order their banded workwear and uniforms from Talisman Hire Direct.
