Kirpalani Parts & Service Center

Until 2018, Kirpalani owned two large stores in the center of Paramaribo, at Maagdenstraat (3500 m2 floor area) and Domineestraat (6200 m2). There also was a smaller store at Johan Adolf Pengel straat (JAP street). This store included a P & S department. There was a central warehouse at Keizerstraat (14400 m2).
In 2018-2020, the JAP store was replaced by a very large new store of 14.000 m2 f.a. But before the old store was scrapped, a new building was set up for the parts & services center. Total floor space 360 m2 ground floor + 360 m2 2nd floor = 720 m2.
After the opening of the new JAP store, it became apparent that the central warehouse at Keizerstraat had become too small. Currently, this warehouse is expanded up to 35.000 m2. The new part will become operational in August 2023.
