They are the agents for all the genuine OE replacement turbo’s that are identical to the turbo that was originally fitted to your car or vehicle, engine, or machine from day one.
With Turbo Direct huge expansion and growth over the years the group decided to move their complete operation into one new building, tailor made to improve their services to all customers. These new premises which they have recently acquired are large enough to consolidate 6 separate previous business locations under a single roof in one location, this will include all their blue chip international brands and products. Stock holding will be consolidated, repairs and fitment will also be incorporated into this one location. The R&D and 5axis CNC machining will still be done in the existing location close by.
“What is it going to achieve for us, is massive improvement for all business units and to enable a more streamline enterprise to better serve our valued customers, this is the main reason we are making this huge move and the major investment,” said Turbo Direct Managing Director Chris Kambouris.
“All services will now be available under one roof, ETA’s on product delivery nationally and the relative repairs will now improve substantially, all technical services will be consolidated in the same building, increasing the service and speed up throughput of our technical offering and all-round services. We have great plans for the new premises all of which will be focussed around improving our customer services and product range.” “New agencies secured will also increase the product offering from TurboDirect S.A to our customers with another dominant international brand under our wings very soon, this we will be announcing after our move,” said Kambouris.
Chris Kambouris is the most recognised specialist, expert, and top Guru when it comes to Turbo’s in South Africa he has direct access to the largest international leading OE turbocharger brands and has the expertise and experience with his 18 years of working successfully in this industry and is regularly called upon for technical advice on Turbo’s by the motor trade, OEMs, Race teams and car owners.
The industry both trade and the end users (car owners) are not aware that the TurboDirect S.A brands are OE, the very same units that are already in their vehicles at the same time they are not aware of the very affordable pricing offered by the company. So, it’s advisable to do your homework when buying and replacing a Turbo or better still call the experts, TurboDirect S.A have an open-door policy for all customers and welcome the calls.
“TurboDirect SA also has a proven record of accomplishment in the turbocharger and related products industry, with products designed and manufactured by TurboDirect SA powering the fastest cars and bikes in Africa along with some international racing series teams using components manufactured by TurboDirect S.A. They have strategic partnerships with their international suppliers and fulfil a demanding customer requirement for the supply of the line-up of all the Genuine brand turbochargers available today. One of their many strengths lies in their unrivalled technical experience allowing TurboDirect SA to offer the most comprehensive solution for any turbocharger requirement in all market sectors, making TurboDirect SA an invaluable partner. The fact that TurboDirect S.A import directly into S.A and sell through a carefully structured channel, provides a price advantage for all business sectors from the turbo specialist/repairer, independent workshop, engine rebuilder, agricultural distribution outlets, wholesalers, and the mining industry - pricing is aggressively aimed at achieving lower pricing when compared to any other “apples with apples” product available anywhere in the market today. TurboDirect S.A are the official technical face for Garrett turbochargers on all vehicles, whether it be passenger vehicle, commercial vehicle, genset, mining, agricultural or a race application.”
