We’ve started this year off in the best way possible – with continued momentum! Building on the successes and lessons learnt during 2017 is an important part of our planning for 2018, and we’re looking forward to working more closely with many more wonderful customers during this big year. Here’s what we most enjoyed during 2017, as we look forward to growing bigger, working smarter, and helping more people find the right liquid storage solution for their business, home, and community:
Water Conservation at School
During 2017, we helped Atholl Heights Primary School develop and install a rainwater harvesting system. The school created an entire programme around the installation, with pupils participating in a range of activities related to the project. These included: an art competition, assisting in the production and installation, and a special School Assembly. Installing three water tanks at key points within the school premises, we help Atholl Heights Primary School collect up to 86,000 litres of rainwater, which is then used for the bathroom and sanitation facilities. This project wasn’t just a project to us – it was an opportunity to work closely with, and inspire, the leaders of tomorrow.
The Grand Challenge with East Coast Radio
Sponsoring KwaZulu Natal’s favourite radio gameshow was a definitive 2017 highlight for our team. Choosing to collaborate with the province’s favourite radio station, and to support the East Coast Radio Breakfast Show’s Grand Challenge competition, turned out to be one of our company highlights for 2017, and handing over Grand Challenge prizes to clued-up winners was a big, feel-good, bonus for our team. Similarly, we deeply enjoyed providing the storage tank at East Coast Radio house for the Living Well project. Using a water-from-air machine provided by Super Water, the Living Well project provided free, fresh and clean drinking water.
Supporting SA Boxing
During December 2017, we hosted ‘Fight for Water’, a 7-fight night of boxing that included an eliminator battle for the then-vacant SA Super Middleweight Title. That bout ended in a draw after 7 amazing, intense rounds. Our Marketing Manager, James Preston, had this to say: “This is the first time that we have gotten involved in boxing. It has been an incredible eye-opener for us. The amount of work that goes into putting something like this together… I am amazed by how SA Boxing does this, and most of the time at their own expense!” said SBS Tanks Marketing Manager, James Preston. SBS Tanks MD, Delayne Gray, shared his view on SBS Tanks’ involvement in supporting South African sport: “This is our first attempt at sponsorship and getting behind a sport. Big sport has got a lot of people behind it, big names, a lot of money… but there are other sports, marginalised sports, that don’t have a voice – the necessary sponsorship and people behind them, and SBS wants to support the voice of KZN Boxing.”
Adding Another Accolade
During the latter half of October 2017, our team was pleased and proud to not only be nominated for, but also ultimately win the prize for Most Productive Company in South Africa. Rigorous auditing procedures, coupled with all-round commitment and determination to achieve our operational goals, enabled SBS Tanks to take home this highly-respected accolade.
