W Vos to close after more than 40 years

W. Vos & Co (Pty) Ltd started trading in the late 1960’s, and has served commerce and industry with German made RENZ binding products and IDEAL shredding and cutting machines for the past four decades.


It is with much sadness and regret therefore, that we advise that we will cease trading from 30 September 2014. This announcement does not come lightly, as we have had a very sound and mutually beneficial relationship with all our customers, many of you over a considerable period.


This closure has come about as I reached retirement age earlier this year, and wanted to ensure that our major brands could carry on seamlessly and with renewed vigour and enthusiasm into the future.


We have pleasure in advising that from 1 October 2014 all RENZ binding products have found a new home with Fellowes Beswick. The Fellowes Beswick Group, also a family-owned business, has an impeccable reputation for quality service and sound management practices. RENZ binding and laminating machines, together with their respective quality supplies, will be incorporated into their print finishing division. Their sales and technical staff will be trained in all aspects of RENZ products, and certain of our existing staff members will be joining them to ensure seamless continuity of, among other supplies, ringwire spools and cut wire pieces.


We have enjoyed a rewarding relationship as the distributor in Gauteng and neighbouring provinces for Maynards Office Technology, the importers of IDEAL shredding machines, guillotines, trimmers and folding machines. From 1 October Maynards will be incorporating the IDEAL range of products into its branch in Meadowdale. We wish Maynards much success with the extension of this superior brand into its Gauteng branch.
