This Week at Magnus



As the industry starts to speed up out of the Numsa strikes and normality starts to take its place, we are often reminded of the hard work that pays off in the months leading up to the one month of unproductivity.

This takes months of preparation, the kind we have learnt to do to maintain the kinds of service that we will make certain that we deliver to our customers, even the guys who are happy to walk in. This is our promise.

If you have ever visited us here at Magnus, you will certainly know that we are all about the customer, we’re just friendly people who happen to be in the business of keeping the customer happy, isn’t that what you’re looking for out of your supplier. We thought so.

So, what has happened this week?
