Acoustex was acknowledged as the 2021 Exporter of the Year by Exporters Eastern Cape at the annual Exporter of the Year Awards online event. Acoustex Group won both the Best Exporter – Medium Enterprise award and the Overall Exporter of the Year award.
Mr Andre Swartbooi, Commercial Director, said “We are overwhelmed by the win and humbled by the messages of congratulations from far and wide. The fact that a medium sized BBBEE manufacturer from Korsten, working with limited resources, has swooped such a prestigious award is incredible.”
“It’s gratifying to win because this is a testimony to all hard work during the past few years, and specifically during the challenging environment of the Covid-19 pandemic. We’ve touched the hearts of everyone because of how we supported our staff, suppliers and customers during this period. Through a comprehensive Covid-19 strategy and constant innovation, we managed to retain our staff, continue supplying customers, whilst at the same time acquiring new business and key staff in order to diversify our offering and ensure continued growth. This win sets the tone for Acoustex future growth and will use it as a measuring stick to continually constantly step up our game.”
