Meet The Team

Every employee here at Sylvester Keal joins our family with a strong passion for customer service!

‘A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so.’ Mahatma Ghandi

We are here for you, so enjoy our products, our passion and our professionalism – but most of all, our people!

Starting a new project?

We naturally feel that it is Customer Service Day each day within SK towers and we would love to invite you in for some true hospitality. You can call us too and have a chat – we give freely of our time because we know that you are the reason for our existence.
