Durban - Brick manufacturer Corobrik has won its ninth PMR.africa Diamond Arrow Award.
Consultancy and research company PMR.africa’s annual awards go to the top performers in key sectors.
Corobrik delegates Clement Mokoena, Musa Shangase and Gary Westwood at the awards ceremony.
A survey of 130 randomly selected building materials retailers and construction company representatives, conducted between November 2018 and January 2019, identified Corobrik as South Africa’s top brick company based on its ability to meet orders, competitive pricing, quality and range of products, flexibility, delivering on promises and response to queries, black economic empowerment, implementation of environmental solutions and sustainable development practices.
“This award and the response of those surveyed shows that we continue to build a strong foundation for our future investments in South Africa," said Musa Shangase, Corobrik’s commercial director.
The R800million mega factory that is under construction alongside Corobrik’s existing Driefontein factory in Gauteng is due for commissioning next year.
Shangase said that in addition to investing in new plants and technology, Corobrik was also constantly analysing market trends and refining its product offerings.
He added that the award "reflected a culture of employee value creation which has entrenched an ethos of constant high performance across our factories and centres nationally.
“By acknowledging the potential of every Corobrik employee and encouraging self-improvement through on- going training and evaluation, Corobrik is able to meet the demands of an ever-changing market, with customer satisfaction a priority.”
