RMCS reinforces good business practices - Intrepreneurs SA Finalist the Radio 702 editorial
Some business owners are constantly striving to build their business – for Louis Aylward, of "Rebar, Mesh & Construction Supplies (Pty) Ltd t/a RMCS", supplying and supporting the rebar, formwork and construction industry, is his passion and business. He says that despite having limited previous experience in this industry, he spotted a niche in the market and pursued it with gusto. RMCS provides accessories and equipment to support the reinforced steel, formwork and construction industries. This includes rebar cutters and benders, cover blocks to support rebar, knipex fixing pliers and automatic rebar tying tools. Formwork assessories such as tie rods and nuts, swivel clamps, water stoppers, corner fillets and ferrule tubing, amongst others, are also supplied.
Louis has been in business for over 38 years and spent most of his career in the software development industry. Apart from other instrests, he decided to venture into the rebar, formwork and construction accessory market, in the mid 2000's, when RMCS was established. RMCS grew from being a startup business in the beginning to a serious rival to the cover block and formwork accessories market. According to him, his success is built on the fact that he can supply quality products backed up by excellent service and support.
Louis says he focuses on service delivery, as this is something all customers seek. RMCS is particularly targeting reinforcing steel, formwork, scaffolding and construction companies in Gauteng, as well as elsewhere in Southern Africa. Louis lists establishing distributors throughout Southern Africa as one of his key strategies.
