Why go Elsewhere?

When you sum up the range of products and services available, the slogan sums it all. You can find everything, you would expect from a hardware store in one place. Materials and tools required for small repairs at your home to supply chain solutions for major construction and infrastructure projects. This philosophy in expanding to the width and breadth of the market helps achieve exponential growth in a few years, and this will keep us going ahead in future, perfecting our solution everyday. A hardware store that serves everyone, all works of life. Once you are here, there is no need to go elsewhere.

Service

Delivery
Material Delivery service is one of the core capabilities of Veligaa Hardware. We believe on time delivery of the materials is key to major customers, anywhere in Male. This is one of the areas Veligaa Hardware beats more well known brands in the business, and a reason Veligaa Hardware maintains the loyalty of major business customers and building and construction industry. From 8 am you will Veligaa delivery teams on bicycles, motor bikes, and pickups on the streets making sure supplies are delivered on time to the locations required. With further investment on streamlining, vehicles and equipments the delivery operation is set to expand as a major function of the business which acts as a key differentiator in the market.

Procurement & Supply Chain Management
Procurement and supply chain management for institutional buyers will be a new solution to the local market. It is an outsourcing solution to the major buyers helping them to organise client’s supply chain management in key areas of hardware, construction and renovation. By partnering with a major hardware chain, the integration will provide more synergy, cost saving and efficiency gains in their supply chain management in the long run. Hardware chains have the capacity to cater urgent needs, and with a greater understanding of the pattern of demand, quality requirements and other customised needs the supplier will be better equipped with the information necessary to provide a solution the customer needs. It is a win win solution for both the client and supplier.

Project Management (Construction)
The growth of construction industry is a major driving force to the growth of hardware chains. If it persists with major investments in public and private sector, project management from a supply chain management perspective could be a lucrative solution for major construction firms, leaving them to focus on their core activities. Supply chain management in construction projects are often complicated and time consuming. Indirectly hardware chains has been doing that for years, sometimes managing the whole project from beginning to completion. Therefore doing that in an official capacity, the construction companies stand to benefit from the international logistics operations and manufacturing partnerships of hardware chains.
