GOLD MINING SUPPORT

BedRock Gold division consists of two business sectors, one is based in Gauteng, west of Johannesburg in Westonaria and the other in Theunissen, Free State.  Both service centres cater for all the underground timber support needs of the Kloof and Driefontein Complex in Westonaria and Beatrix in the Free State. These two service centres have been at the forefront of the underground timber supply since BedRock’s inception in 1997. Timber is sourced directly from our own 5 sawmills (Piet Retief Sawmill, Glenthorpe Sawmill, Rutland Sawmill, Sawco Sawmill and Rocklands Sawmill) which gives us the advantage of consistent timber supply.

Timber is treated at both centres with fire retardant chemical on-site before it is distributed to various shafts. Our success is built on Quality. On time. In Full. -ethics and transparency, discipline and respect for the business, customers and competitors, however big or small, and by being a supplier of choice. Both service centres are adjacent to the shafts and facilitates the needs of all the nearby shafts.

Added value services that we provide to our customers is offloading of trucks and loading of underground timber cars. This enables us to deliver timeously and is our competitive advantage. Furthermore, the customer relationships that we have built over the years and the consistency in upholding the safety standards, reliability and focus have been fundamental to our strengths.

Our employees are the core of the business, we respect and value their importance, including suppliers and customers in working together to achieving one common goal and objective, and that is safety.
