Kohler Box Turns 15 years Old
Celebrating a milestone and growth within the corrugated industry.
On the 8th June 2004, two entrepreneurs, Leon Van Duyn and Harold Caledon, started their quest which was called Kohler Box CC. “The first 5 years was challenging, because we had to grow customers as well as building infrastructure as space was limited” explains Harold.
The business started off in a single factory unit in Athlone Industrial and after the first year had to relocate to bigger premises in Beaconvale, Parow. From a staff compliment of only 4 people, the business grew over the following 7 years to provide employment to over 50 people. Customer service and quality was and remains the main indicator of growth and success in the business.
The company’s first milestone was reaching 10 years. This was due to the solid foundation of building partnerships with customers and suppliers. The company also achieved ISO9001 accreditation, a quality management system, which enhanced the infrastructure of the business. The business has secured a niche, which includes quick turn-around times as well as stock holding. As a member of the Cape Chamber, the business has created a strong partnerships and been successful in deeply penetrating the market.
