"Even though we have hardly any influence on the macro economic and political climate of the country, we can and do continue to influencekey aspects at a lower level…”

The South African Plastic Pipes Manufacturers Association (SAPPMA) held their Annual General Meeting in Midrand on the 30th of September. Speaking to the more than 40 captains of industry that were in attendance, Chief Executive Officer Jan Venter said the decision to launch the association 11 years ago, has certainly been proven correct.

“There is little doubt that we have played a key role in the general well-being of this industry. In spite of severe pressure on the economy in general and the plastics pipe industry in particular, SAPPMA had a good year and fulfilled its mandate within the boundaries of its budget,” he said.


Improving the long-term health of the local plastic pipe industry

SAPPMA’s main focus continues to be improving the long-term health of the plastics pipe industry. This is done through the work done by a team of volunteers serving on SAPPMA’s Technical Committee which strives towards ensuring good product quality, an adherence to industry standards, accessing and sharing technical information, and delivering ongoing training and marketing services.

Growth in membership

SAPPMA membership has continued to grow and counts 16 pipe manufacturers, 2 polymer producers, 15 suppliers, 3 merchants and 27 fabricators/installers listed as associates.

“To be a member of SAPPMA bears great responsibility but also great benefits. People vote with their feet and the continuous growth in membership underlines this statement. We also believe it is proof that companies continue to find value companies in the association. It is our view that any company carrying the interest of this industry at heart should be a member and cooperate to make it a better place,” Venter said.

Building industrial clusters in South Africa and Human Resource Development: Contribution of Japanese Companies to the South African Economy
 

The first Japan Seminar was launched in 2013 just before TICAD V being held in June 2013. The second was held in September 2014 with the theme of local industrialization and the lesson from the Asian Miracle. The third Japan seminar was held on 22 September 2015 at Hyatt Regency Johannesburg.

Sun Ace SA was invited to deliver a presentation at the third Japan seminar and Mr. Gary van Eyk delivered an exceptional presentation on “Think globally, work locally”, based on Sun Ace’s investment story into Africa. Amongst Gary there were speakers such as H.E. Mr. Cyril Ramaphosa (Deputy President of the Republic of South Africa) and Mr. Andrew Kirby (Senior Vice President, Toyota SA Motors) to name a few.

This seminar provided an excellent opportunity to meet and exchange experiences with local entrepreneurs and Japanese companies that have added value to the South African economy. The Deputy President highlighted the much recognized role Japan is playing in apprenticeship development and specifically the masters post graduate program for math’s and science graduates from South African universities.

Sun Ace SA Celebrating 67 Minutes For Mandela Day
"Mr Mandela has spent 67 years making the world a better place.
We're asking you for 67 minutes."
 
Nelson Mandela's birthday is on 18 July, and the call is out for people everywhere to celebrate his birthday by acting on the idea that each person has the power to change the world. The idea of Mandela Day was inspired by Nelson Mandela at his 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park in 2008 when he said: "It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now."

The United Nations officially declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day in November 2009, recognising Mandela’s "values and his dedication to the service of humanity" and acknowledging his contribution "to the struggle for democracy internationally and the promotion of a culture of peace throughout the world".

The celebration of Mandela Day aims to serve as a global call to action for people to "recognise their individual power to make an imprint and help change the world around them for the better", says the Nelson Mandela Foundation. By devoting 67 minutes of their time – one minute for every year of Mandela’s public service – people can make a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good. Mandela said at the time of the campaign's launch that he would be "honoured if such a day can serve to bring together people around the world to fight poverty and promote peace and reconciliation".

Former US president Bill Clinton said the core of Mandela's example was that "the power of public good does not require public office, just a well-placed heart and a determined mind.
"In return for everything Madiba has taught us, we each owe it to him to support his work and legacy by doing and living our own as best we can, not just on this day, but throughout our entire lives."

Sun Ace South Africa honoured the late Mr Mandela’s wish and contributed by distributing food packets to those in need.
