Says Jonathan Coles, Chief Operations Officer for Oasys Hiring: “The last few months of the year are always hectic when large orders are placed on us. This is especially true for exhibitions such as for Interbuild, Decorex and Electra Mining which require a large volume of carpets. On average our company invests more than R12 million annually on new stocks, including local and imported marquees and new systems. This investment of 70,000 new carpet tiles is considered a special investment, as many of our projects run concurrently, thus not allowing enough time for professional carpet cleaning on our own premises with automated equipment or through refurbishment initiatives."
Coles says that the new stock is in grey, blue and charcoal, as well as red, which was purchased for the upcoming Sexpo exhibition. Obsolete stock to the value of around R1 million has been sponsored to orphanages and old age homes in support of the company's corporate social responsibility programme.
