At Sheffield Africa, we have established a solid presence in our primary markets by concentrating our efforts and investment in markets where we leverage the advantages we have built over many years of experience in implementing the Sheffield management philosophy;“Providing the best kitchen and laundry solutions.”
Meanwhile, today's society is undergoing dramatic changes, and at an unprecedented pace. While many people lead affluent lives surrounded by an abundance of possessions, we are all faced with difficult global-scale challenges. The days when all a company had to do to survive was manufacture and sell a product are gone. The only companies that will be able to maintain sustainable growth from here on are those that work together with customers to resolve challenge and those which make a positive contribution to society and the environment.
Every day and every place Sheffield Africa operates; we are part of people’s lives. We are one company, but we play a role in thousands of stories. And the benefits of our business are sustained because we listen to, become a part of, and tell the stories of the people and communities in which we live and work. We work very hard to be “Responsible, Respected and Welcomed” everywhere we do business. We also remain diligent in protecting our workers' health and safety, just as we are in environmental stewardship and in advancing the socio-economic development of local communities.
I would like to personally thank the employees of Sheffield Africa for their high standards in safety, environmental performance and community relations. As we move ahead, we will continue to refine our policies and performance, to ensure that the Sheffield Africa brand continues to deliver on the economic, social and cultural promise of Sustainable Prosperity.
I take this opportunity to wish you a successful and prosperous month of August.
