South Africa's economy is performing poorly, and businesses are cautious. Spend is conservative and short-term investments are the choice of risk averse organisations. This is impacting decisions around the HVAC equipment, both in new construction and in terms of maintaining and refreshing HVAC technologies. This is a very short-sighted approach.

It is essential to have a well-implemented maintenance regime in place in order to prevent fire incidents on mining vehicles. In addition, any fire-suppression system installed must not only represent the latest technology, but be customised for the application in question.

It was once said that innovation is not born from a dream, but from a struggle. As a nation facing the impact of drought and water shortages in many of our provinces, this sentiment has proven to be particularly true for the South African plastics industry. More than any other material, plastics have been relied upon to assist South Africans in dealing with the drought and accompanying water shortages.

The countdown has begun for the biggest coatings show in Africa: Coatings for Africa 2018 is scheduled to be held at the Sandton Convention Centre from 21 to 31 May.

As a result of Kaytech’s supply of Concrete Canvas, a revolutionary new class of construction material, a property developer not only benefitted from substantial short-term savings but will also gain from significantly reduced maintenance costs in the long term.

Otis South Africa has appointed Nicolas Branly to the position of Service Director, reporting to the MD: Otis Africa, Daniel Daphne.
