The management of the Canvas and Tent Group acknowledges with great enthusiasm President Cyril Ramaphosa’s recent nod to the textile industry.
One of our most valuable resources, the one we brag about extensively, is the remarkable group of people who compose our various team at #WeatherhavenRCS and #CanvasAndTent. The men in our Installation Team, many of whom are trained and experienced artisans in their respective crafts, have installed military and luxury camps across the globe. They make giving excellent service to our clients possible, and you can see from this why we are so proud of them.
Weatherhaven RCS is honoured to announce that the company will be exhibiting at the International Defence Expo #IDEX2019. IDEX is the only international defence exhibition and conference in the MENA region demonstrating the latest technology across land, sea and air sectors of defence. It is a unique platform to establish and strengthen relationships with government departments, businesses and armed forces throughout the region.
For more than a decade, Weatherhaven RCS has supplied world class temporary accommodation solutions to the Military industry, while also establishing a stronghold in servicing the mining, construction, aviation and tourism markets. Our highly skilled teams have installed military camps and supplied related products in an array of territories across the globe, including the UK, Ghana, Tanzania, Botswana, Somalia, Antarctica, the DRC and the UAE.
The product offering favoured by armed forces across the globe includes canvas products, PVC structures and containerised shelters. Through strategic partnerships, industry accreditation and a strong dedication to innovation, Weatherhaven RCS produces products of superior technological advancement. This is evidenced in the products’ ability to withstand harsh climates, ranging from extreme heat to subzero temperatures, as well as harsh winds.
This year, we have partnered with the DTI and will exhibit as part of the South African Pavillion of trusted suppliers and exporters in the industry. We will also showcase our PVC product at the Streit Group stand, which will feature a full military camp simulated experience.
Weatherhaven RCS’s work with SA Military Health makes its mark at the UN. The doctrinal and development work done by the SANDF, using Weatherhaven RCS’s re-deployable medical posts, are a part of a programme that has become a benchmark recognized and accepted by the UN.
Weatherhaven RCS has risen to the critical issue of treating Ebola and unrelated casualties in Africa. We were proud to be the first to deliver accommodation and medical facilities for the SANDF. It’s a massive investment in a situation that has major challenges.
The partnership with Denel/Mechem MOU has led to an opportunity for Weatherhaven RCS to supply our clients with a one stop service. Through our memorandum of understanding with Denel/Mechem, we are now able to provide full turnkey camps, including camp management. Therefore, no matter how remote our clients may be, we can service their every need.
