As some of you may know, SA4x4 recently attended the Allrad & Abenteuer Show, the largest overland expo in Europe.
It was a huge privilege and a great opportunity to see the global industries’ leading offroad gear.
Many of us consider the European off-road market to be at the forefront of innovation and design, based on the industry’s quest for superb build quality, unrivalled professionalism and phenomenal attention to detail. But the truth is that there’s no need to travel 8 000 km to Germany to see the latestand- greatest in 4×4 gear; simply pop in at Front Runner’s new showroom and you’re bound to be blown away.
Since their inception 13 years ago, Front Runner has become synonymous with high-quality products that are functional, streamlined and incredibly versatile. Their reputation has spread well beyond South Africa’s borders and they now have distributors in Australia, USA and Korea. Just when we thought Front Runner had done it all, they recently unveiled their new world-class showroom.
Thanks to further investment in the business by company chairman, Stanley Illman, this fast-growing brand now enjoys a new 570 m² showroom and a massive 1 250 m² warehouse.
These units complement Front Runner’s existing 2 900 m² factory unit. Front Runner also boasts 10 new fitment bays that are sure to provide customers with time-efficient installations and fast turnaround times. On the showroom side, customers can now enjoy Front Runner’s new comfortable seating area, which boasts free Wi-Fi, coffee, and power points for your laptop computer.
Of course, Front Runner’s worldrenowned reputation has been built on their strong emphasis on delivery and stock availability; so it’s no surprise that the company has invested in a massive stock holding of three months’ supply. But don’t take our word for it; go see their facilities for yourself. Go to 1 Forssman Close, Kyalami, Sandton. For more information contact: Kevin Heyneke on (011) 466 0155…
