Skillcraft Agencies recently hosted their first INGCO Open Day for 2024. This event opened doors to not only display the latest tools and equipment from INGCO, but also provided a platform to forge deeper connections with their valued customers and  to provide insights into their operations.  

Johannesburg Open Day

“Open Days at our branches give our customers the opportunity to see our showrooms and our operation first hand. The most prevalent comment we get is, “We didn’t realise how big you are.” We have grown tenfold in size and stature over the past eight years and it’s something that must be seen to be appreciated,” said Skillcraft Agencies MD Angelo Angelos.  

He adds that the Open Days also give its customers the chance to take a detailed look at INGCO’s whole range, sample the products and make strategy decisions about the way forward with us. “We work hard to make sure that our customers understand our trajectory and where we are going so that they can remain in step with us on this journey. The deeper our common understanding, the better results we can achieve together. The Open Days are a fantastic vehicle to foster this understanding.”  

One of the standout features of the event was the exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Skillcraft Agencies’ warehouse facilities. This tour provided attendees with a rare glimpse into the finer details of Skillcraft warehouse operations, including spares and repairs processes and logistics management. By understanding these inner workings, customers gained valuable insights into lead times and operational efficiency, fostering better communication and collaboration between Skillcraft Agencies and its customers.

Skillcraft Agencies marketing coordinator, Brigitte Thysse, adds that face-to-face ‘meet and greet’ opportunities between Skillcraft Agencies’ internal sales and administrative teams and their customer base added a personal touch and provided customers with the opportunity to make queries, offer feedback, and establish meaningful relationships with the team. Skillcraft Agencies’ commitment to an open-door policy and customer support was evident throughout the event, reinforcing the notion that every customer’s voice is valued and heard.  

Another highlight of the INGCO Open Day was the presence of dedicated INGCO brand ambassadors in each region. These ambassadors played a crucial role in providing live demonstrations, addressing product-related queries, and sharing valuable tips and tricks with attendees. By offering first hand experience and expertise, these ambassadors empowered customers to make informed decisions about the INGCO product range and maximise their in-store opportunities. Their presence reinforced Skillcraft Agencies’ commitment to not only selling quality products but also ensuring that customers derive maximum value and satisfaction from their purchases.
