Trellidor Botswana opens top quality showroom in Gaborone

Aluminium 2000 has been the authorised Trellidor franchise in Botswana for over 10 years.  The company has undergone an extensive expansion and recently opened a modern, fresh showroom in Phakalane, Gaborone, with plenty of parking for customers.

“We have developed a top of the range showroom and have furnished the building with all the products we manufacture and supply so that customers can see them as they would look in their own homes,” said business owner Kelvin Saunders.

The showroom houses the full range of Trellidor products for visitors to try out and consultants are on hand to answer any questions.  A TV plays Trellidor product attack test videos as well as static photos of all products installed in actual applications, giving clients ideas for their own home or business. 

“We welcome visitors to our spacious, interactive showroom.  They can enjoy tea or coffee while discussing product options with our Sales Executives, around the meeting table,” said Kelvin.

Some of the most popular products are Trellidor Clear Guard, a see-through mesh screen in a modern design aluminium frame and Trellidor Security Shutter aluminium louvres, both with excellent strength under attack.  The product most in demand is Trellidor Retractable Security, steel and aluminium trellis-design sliding security gates that protect doors and/or windows.

Aluminium 2000 began trading over 25 years ago from a humble park-home in Tlokweng with four permanent employees.  As the company has grown it has moved to a 250m²warehouse in Gaborone before building their own 350m² warehouse with about the same in yard space.

In January 2015 the company began construction on two new warehouses of 1000m²each on 6750m² of land in the prestigious suburb of Phakalane.  There is now more than enough space for the 80 employees.  As Phakalane is about 18km from the centre of town, Aluminium 2000 has become a destination shop.

“We cater for the industrial, commercial and domestic markets and recently completed a house on the Phakalane Golf Estate which made use of nine different product ranges supplied by us.  We strive to provide quality products backed by quality service.  Our team does not cut corners in terms of design in order to sell cheap products,” said Kelvin.

“Our staff members have many decades of experience between them in this trade and they are happy to share this expertise with customers.  It has been a year since we moved into our new premises and despite the economic downturn we are currently facing, there has been a steady flow of customers making the trip to visit our showroom.”
