Vision & Visibility

North Point Ballito welcomes Sunflex SA to the community

Patrick Rostance, Managing Director of Sunflex SA

We spoke with Patrick Rostance, managing director of Sunflex South Africa and one of North Point Ballito’s first investors, about why he chose the business park and what comes next for his company.  

What does Sunflex do?

Patrick: Sunflex SA is a local manufacturer of German aluminium and glass door systems for home and commercial use. We specialise in frameless glass patio systems, frameless stacking doors as well as aluminium security shutters.  All our systems are custom made to suit our customer’s needs. We manufacture and supply our systems directly to end users as well as through a network of approved installers around South Africa.

When was Sunflex established in South Africa?

We first encountered Sunflex at a London Trade Show in 2003 and their products and approach to solving customer problems made a real impression. Sunflex South Africa was incorporated in Durban in 2005 and was the first partnership that Sunflex Germany signed outside of Europe.

What is the secret to Sunflex’s success? What makes you stand apart?

First and foremost it’s our parent company’s attention to quality, function and design in their products. Sunflex Germany is also committed to constant innovation and continues to deliver quality solutions. Any updates or improvements made in Germany are immediately available here in South Africa.

Secondly, being a family-owned and family-run business, Sunflex SA is committed to giving each and every one of our customers a personal experience backed by friendly and reliable service.

How has the company grown?

From the family garage back in 2005, Sunflex has added offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg. We now have 70 full time employees and service the whole of South Africa.

Why did you choose North Point Ballito?

There were three reasons we chose NPB for our new national headquarters.

The first is the location. Ballito is a key market for Sunflex, and North Point Ballito’s proximity to the airport, city of Ballito and key arterial roads made sense for us.

The second is security. North Point Ballito’s position, infrastructure and approach to security is a step forward for our company.

Finally, the approach to community and a forward-thinking business environment appeals to our culture and vision for the future.

What are your plans for the new location?

The new facility will allow us to include a showroom, administration, R&D, training and manufacturing all under one roof.  North Point Ballito’s visibility and easy access means it’s an ideal space for both industrial output and everyday client engagement. We’re excited by that potential.
