Agra Rundu branch will officially open its doors for business on Friday, July 29. This new development brings new job opportunities for local people to excel in their careers. Agra appointed 15 permanent employees, ranging from branch administrators to shop assistants.
Johann Viljoen, Agra Retail’s Operations Manager described the new branch as a result of growth, planning and leadership. “We are all excited! We are positive that this branch will play a crucial role, as the provider of farming inputs to the agricultural industry and the entire community,” he proudly said.
Viljoen continued by saying that Agra will continue to expand its wings to various parts of the country to bring services closer to the people.
Agra Limited, a non-listed public company, continues to play an important role in agriculture. Through Agra’s diversified range of products and services, Agra becomes increasingly important to a larger and more diversified client base.
“Agra implemented a strategy to diversify its business interests in non-agricultural investments, to counteract the cyclical nature of agriculture with steady income not entirely dependent on the weather conditions. This move enables our business to be sustainable and relevant for many more years to come,” Viljoen explained.
The Agra Rundu branch aims to reach out to all communities, by providing nationwide services and comprehensive product ranges, including building materials, hardware, water equipment, fertilizers, household and consumer goods, just to name a few.
Agra Rundu offers sufficient retail area of 900 m² consisting of shelves, cashiers and administration offices; bulk storage of 1 046 m²; yard space of 4 300 m², paved parking area of 1 000 m² and additional gravel parking space of 1 500 m².
Agra Retail offers agriculture products and services, and household goods on a retail basis for the Namibian public through widespread branches countrywide.
