He will oversee administration, provide training, and ensure distribution channels are streamlined for faster turnaround.

“The key to our growth and expansion is to maintain sufficient stock levels, and to negotiate contracts with our customers on an ongoing basis to ensure that these are mutually beneficial,” Combrinck comments.
