East London: We Are Open For Business!
Category About Us
Swindon Property first opened its doors in Cape Town in 2006. Since then we have grown steadily into each of the major cities across South Africa, including Johannesburg, Durban and, most recently, East London. Having spent most of his youth in the Eastern Cape, Nick Irvine was the obvious choice to head up our newest venture.
"I already have a strong network in the area" Says Nick "Consisting of influential contacts in the distribution, property development, manufacturing and retail sectors". Swindon has brokers in Port Elizabeth and East London, enabling us to service the growing demand in the province. "We aim to show the area a boost of energy and hope to combine 'big city' efficiency with building real and lasting relationships".
The enormous potential in the Agricultural, Renewable Energy and Automotive sectors were key to the recent investments the Eastern Cape has secured. These include an investment of R1.8bn for the construction of 16 wind farms, and approximately R10-billion by Mercedes-Benz to upgrade its manufacturing plant in East London. Swindon Managing Director, Andrew Dewey commented that the availability of transport infrastructure, land, labour and raw materials, played a major part in the strategic decision to expand into the area. Andrew adds, "The Eastern Cape is set to grow over the next few years, and Swindon is excited to be a part of it".
We wish Nick and all the Brokers starting at Swindon Eastern Cape an exciting and successful year ahead.
