Premier visits Smith Capital Equipment

29 July 2016 | Posted in SACEEC Member News.

On Friday, the 15th of July 2016, Smith Capital Equipment (SCE) was honoured to be visited by the Premier and his delegation and the visit was such a huge success. The Premier and his delegation were very impressed with who SCE is and our capabilities. We discussed amongst others the following critical issues which were positively received:

  • Designation of Aerial Platforms in order to: encourage local production; ensure retention and creation of new jobs; retain and improve competitiveness; drive export to Africa; create new industries and associated skills; and price stability as local products have very little forex exposure (SCE products are 95% local content).
  • Positioning Local Products with Municipalities in Gauteng: SCE is appreciative of how Eskom and Ekurhuleni support local products including SCE’s. We have confidence in public procurement system but have a challenge where procurement is outsourced to FML’s as they do not adhere to PPPFA and we would like to see section 9.3 of the PPPFA being invoked and require intervention with current tenders to facilitate local procurement.
  • Required support in the procurement or leasing of the land adjacent to our premises so that we can expand our business and create a Manufacturing Park.
