WARN has appointed Safari Centre, the national 4×4 retailer, a WARN winch service dealer. Safari Centre, which was recently purchased by the Imperial Group, will provide a national carry-in service for repair and service on WARN winches.
Andre de Villiers, managing director of Safari Centre, said all eight Safari Centres currently sell WARN winches exclusively. “Our stores will now accept WARN winches for service, based on a lifetime warranty covering manufacturer’s defects, and backed by the Control Instruments-Automotive group,” he said.
De Villiers, who is the presenter of Safari Roetes on KykNet, is the founder of Safari Centre.
“We only sell WARN winch products,” said de Villiers. “This is based on WARN’s advanced design and reliability. Being a service dealer is a natural extension for our WARN business.”
Leonard Chester, Control Instruments-Automotive’s WARN product manager, said Safari Centre’s support for WARN, combined with the financial backing from the Imperial group, warrants their appointment as a service and repair centre.
“Safari Centre’s focus is on quality workmanship and service, and has a workshop that is AA certified. The sales staff are highly trained on WARN products,” said Chester.
“Safari Centre plans to open another five stores in the next 12 months, complementing their existing eight stores. This is in line with our aggressive national coverage strategy,” said Chester.
