first_img20 June 2008The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) has signed up its fifth investor, following a decision by parcel and freight company UTI Sun Couriers to lease a R20-million warehouse within the industrial development zone’s automotive cluster area.In a statement last week, the CDC said the speculatively built 3 040 square-metre warehouse was leased to UTI at the beginning of June, only two months after its completion.“This proves that companies are keen to operate from within the IDZ. It also shows there’s a demand for high standard facilities in Nelson Mandela Bay,” said CDC business development manager Gustav Meyer. “The CDC noted the need and delivered according to the requirements of industry.”According to the CDC, such speculative developments are ideal for potential investors who have tight time frames and who want to move into ready-built facilities – such as UTI Sun Couriers, which specialises in the movement of envelopes, parcels and freight throughout South Africa.The warehouses are being constructed in anticipation of high demand due to the number of signed investors and the opening of the Port of Ngqura in the first quarter of 2009.“This is in line with the CDC’s commitment to deliver world-class-solutions to its investors in the shortest possible timeframes,” the statement reads.UTI manager Jenny Hayes said that the company chose to operate from the new industrial area because of the high quality of infrastructure, as well as due to the close business relationships it had developed with the CDC over time.“The warehouse is situated on a prime piece of real estate, directly next to the N2 out of Port Elizabeth,” said Hayes. “This location will give us excellent exposure and great advertising at no additional costs.”Additionally to the speculative warehouses, various other ready-built facilities are being developed to suit the needs of potential investors, including shared industrial facilities and a business process outsourcing facility.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgIndia’s tennis campaign at the 2012 London Games came to an end Saturay after the mixed doubles pair of Leander Paes and Sania Mirza lost their quarter-final match at the Wimbledon.Paes, a 1996 singles bronze medallist, and Sania lost 5-7, 6-7 (7-5) to the top seeded Belarusian pair of Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi in a match that was played over two days due to bad light.The Indians were trailing 5-7, 2-3 when bad light stopped play here Friday evening. But when play resumed Saturday, it seemed that the Indians failed to get back into the match.Paes and Saina had paired for the Olympics after sorting out their off-court differences. They had an excellent win against the Serbian pair of Nenad Zimonjic and Anna Ivanovic to book a place in the quarterfinal.India’s campaign in men’s singles and doubles and women’s singles also didn’t last long.Wild card entrant Somdev Devvarman, India sole representative in the singles, suffered a first round exit to Finland’s Jarko Nieminen in a rain-affected encounter.The second to go out was the women’s doubles pair of Sania and Rushmi Chakarvarthi, who were knocked out by Chia-Jung Chuang and Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei in the opening round.The men’s doubles pair of Mahesh Bhupathi and Rohan Bopanna, who had revolted against the All India Tennis Association (AITA) for asking them to pair with Paes, went down tamely 3-6, 4-6 to Frenchman Richard Gasquet and Julien Benneteau in the second round.But Paes, playing with a young partner Vishnu Vardhan, held his head high after they lost to the second seeded French pair of Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Michael Llodra in an evenly fought second round match.advertisementlast_img read more
