About SAC Automotive Workshops – vehicle service, repairs, diagnostics.
The future holds great promise for this innovate group, with franchised expansion envisaged for Durban, Port Elizabeth, Middelburg, Klerksdorp as well as in strategically chosen neighbouring countries such as Namibia, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
A business such as Steve’s Auto Clinic does not operate in isolation. Part of its strategic planning is an ongoing process to form partnerships with external parties who offer expertise in various specialised fields. A pertinent example of SAC’s efforts to form strategic external partnerships concerns Centurion-based automotive electronics company Dastek, headed up by programming expert Pieter de Weerdt. Engine management re-mapping chips for normally aspirated engines, known as the Unichip, are sourced from Dastek and programmed by SAC in conjunction with engine electronics experts at the source company. British firm Superchips is another participant in SAC’s strategic partnership policy. In late 2001, SAC was appointed the exclusive South African importer and fitment company for these sought-after electronic power enhancement products – essentially custom-programmed replacement engine management computer chips for turbo-charged petrol engines.
