New look for Megatech
11 November 2019 | Business
The event which took place at the newly renovated Windhoek store, also gave an opportunity to suppliers to exhibit their electrical and solar products.
The renovation was part of a two phased project, with phase one completed in 2016.
The keynote speaker at the event, Meryl Barry (Pupkewitz Foundation Chief Executive), was excited to see the progress achieved since the store was first opened. She provided some background, saying, “Pupkewitz Megatech started as Beimah Agencies in 1968 and traded in industrial and mining supplies. In 2003, Pupkewitz Megatech was created as a trading agent for the Pupkewitz Group for large tenders. In 2009, Pupkewitz Megatech moved to Edison Street (its current location) and it was during this time that it expanded its offering into electrical products.”
Morne Nell, MD of Pupkewitz Megatech, acknowledged the employees for their continuous hard work, applauding clients for their collaboration and patience exercised during the three months renovation. Nell highlighted the importance of the store renovation saying, “Our revamped electrical store will address the flow of client ‘traffic’ from the entrance to exit as well as improve our customers’ shopping experience. The changes include a new retail exit, renovation of the dispatch and electrical sales counters. The retail shopping area was also enlarged, and cashiers relocated to ensure seamless flow to the dispatch area.”
The store layout has been redesigned to offer customers a wider range and choice of quality products, and further enhance the customers’ experience. The Windhoek store now also features a larger range of light fittings, including ranges that are only exclusive to Pupkewitz Megatech.
Meryl Barry and Morne Nell, accompanied by some of Pupkewitz Megatech’s long serving employees namely Etienne Kotze, Abdulaziz Salie, Christie van Wyk, Gavin Langley, Tommy Shangadi, Hendrik Hamunyela, Bonnie Fransman and Nell himself, had the honour of cutting the ribbon to signify the opening of the newly renovated store.
