Bell wins Exporter of the Year award

September 26, 2019

Bell Equipment won Exporter of the Year Award (Large category; turnover >R200 million) and was runner-up in the Exporter of the Year Africa Award (turnover >R100 million) at the inaugural Exporter of the Year Awards for capital equipment manufacturers.

The awards formed part of the Southern African Local Manufacturing Expo, a showcase for the vast array of products available from local manufacturers.

Charlene Hefer, portfolio director for Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery commended the award winners for their sterling efforts “in putting South African manufacturing on the map”.

Bell Equipment has achieved this by exporting its products to over 80 countries worldwide. “Exports account for about 40% of turnover and our exports increased year-on-year from 2017 to 2018 by 19%. We’re also proud that our exports have 70% local content and we are always looking at ways to increase this,” said Stephen Jones, Bell Equipment Director: Global Product Portfolio and Marketing.

“Manufacturing is one industry that has the single greatest potential to make a massive difference to our economy and level of unemployment so we appreciate attention that the Expo and the Exporter of the Year Awards has focused on the sector and are proud to have received these awards for our role,” he concluded.

With the onset of what promises to be a cold winter, this photo provides a timely reminder of what happens to wattle trees when it snows. No! It’s not a good idea to plant wattle if snow is a possibility. The only thing you could use these broken trees for is firewood. The photo was taken near Weza a few years ago.
