The beautiful Boland town Wellington, is home to this family business that was founded in 1954 and is still family owned and managed.
Our valued customers include the D.I.Y. public, building merchants, civil contractors, local authorities and agricultural sector.
The Panda business started more than 20 years ago. PANDA manufactures a variety of paving bricks, stock bricks and semi-face bricks. We also make precast concrete products like portal culverts, manholes, lintels and concrete kerbs, as well as a lot of smaller items like window-sills and air-bricks. In the clay manufacturing business, at this stage we just make stock bricks. Panda Quarry provides concrete stone, road stone and also a dense grade aggregate called crusher run. Panda Plant undertakes all the distribution of our products, from both locations, allowing us to serve both the northern and the southern side of Botswana, penetrating the whole of the country from both directions.
Our manufacturing plant, situated on a 20 000 square meter site in Silverton, Pretoria, was established in 1998 by Mr. Costa Ellinas and his son, George. Since then, we have expanded our facility to become the largest concrete lintel manufacturer in Pretoria, producing 3 km of lintels per day.
Recognising the need for precast concrete elements in the roads and infrastructure sectors, we have, since 2005, set up a division to manufacture such precast elements.
These include prestressed precast Bridge Beams, F-Shape Barriers, Lightmast Bases, Stormwater Channels, Manhole covers and concrete Palisade Fencing.
We are committed to providing excellent service to our clients and manufacturing precast concrete products of the highest quality, both in structural integrity and aesthetics.
TOPFLOOR HOLLOW-CORE CONCRETE FLOOR PANELS HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTOR TO THE GROWTH OF THE BUILDING AND CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IN THE WESTERN CAPE SINCE 1997
That role has been strengthened through the acquisition of Topfloor by the Echo Group, South Africa’s largest and longest-established prestressed and precast floor manufacturer.
Echo already has two manufacturing plants in Gauteng and one in Kwa-Zulu Natal, and its move into the Western Cape gives the 26-year-old industry pioneer a footprint for the first time in the Cape’s precast and prestressed floor industry.
Importantly, though, Topfloor, based in Belville South, keeps its name – a name built on a concrete foundation of quality and dependability.
