Leading gases supplier, Afrox, has imported new LPG cylinder stocks and ramped up supplies of Handigas to ensure wide availability to consumers in South Africa this winter. “With temperatures dropping and the possibility of further power outages, Afrox is ensuring Handigas is widely available to assist consumers with their heating, cooking and lighting needs,” confirmed Head of Afrox LPG, Mark Radford.
Radford also urged the public to avoid a possible last-minute rush demand triggered by sudden cold spells depleting available stocks at Afrox Gas & Gear outlets and accredited distributors. “Over the years we have seen the trend of consumers waiting until the last minute to replace their empty cylinders and this causes a bottleneck in the supply chain,” says Radford. “In these circumstances we see tens of thousands of 9 kg cylinders leave our Gas & Gears daily, and this type of sudden demand leads to constricted supply. We urge consumers to exchange their empties for full Handigas cylinders now while stocks are high and widely available.”
To get gas fast, customers can order Handigas via the Afrox online shop at www.afroxshop.co.za and follow the three easy steps to place their order for collection at their nearest Afrox Gas & Gear centre. Handigas is also available through a national network of approved distributors. If customers don’t purchase Handigas at an Afrox Gas & Gear, they are advised to check for the Afrox branded and coded red seal on the valve of Handigas cylinders, which assures all safety checks have been carried out, the cylinder has been correctly filled, and that quality is guaranteed.
"Afrox takes the utmost care to test and maintain our stockpile of Handigas cylinders to ensure the safety of our customers by meeting all the legal requirements of a legitimate and responsible company," confirmed Radford. Afrox pioneered the LPG business in South Africa in the early 1950s when it imported LPG in cylinders from the UK. Today, the Handigas brand is the largest selling brand of LPG in southern Africa and has a significant and growing presence in the company's sub-Saharan operations.
