In 1985 Site Services was established by the entrepreneur and businessman Mervyn Wallace whose property acumen became a byword in the Zululand area. Under his direction, Site Services has specialised for 30 years in developments to tenant requirements, primarily for national and international tenants - Clover, Hyundai, Standard Bank, Nashua, Builders Market, Masscash etc. In total Site Services provides a base for nearly 140 local, national and international tenants in properties throughout Zululand as well as various mini storage and residential clients.
Hands on management and local knowledge are the bedrock of our management strategy. Using this approach we claim an exceptional standard of both development and ongoing management of buildings focussed on retaining our tenants over many years. We invite you to contact our existing clients for references – some of whom have been tenants since inception.
In addition to our development and property management expertise, Site Services offers a full spectrum Property Company Management Service ranging all the way from acquisition and development to annual audits, company records and dividend distributions.
Development of multi-tenant Logistical hubs, Industrial Parks and Retail Centres have dominated the past decade with clients ranging from Afrox and Action Bolt to Bears and Mica Hardware.
At present new developments under way include the new transport Hub of Zululand – Maguzulu Park – which already hosts developments to specification for clients such as Unitrans, John Deere (Mascor) and Manline. 8000sqm expansion of Ngoya Park, Alton, Richards Bay and 2500sqm warehouse and 3000sqm yard for Ellerines at MAGUZULU PARK, Empangeni.
Site Service's hands-on management strategy defines our operations base as no more than a 250km radius from head office at Kuleka Industrial Park in Empangeni. As such we currently own and manage premises in Pietermaritzburg, Melmoth and Mtubatuba; with the bulk of the portfolio in Empangeni and Richards Bay.
