SBS Tanks® named Exporter of the Year

SBS Tanks®, a premium product made by SBS® Water Systems, has been named winner of the Medium Category at the 16th edition of the KZN Exporter of the Year Awards, presented by the Durban Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) and Transnet Port Terminals (TPT).

The KZN Exporter of the Year Awards highlight successful exporters in KwaZulu-Natal and were adjudicated by an independent judging panel and audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

As winners of the Small Category in 2014, SBS Tanks has achieved tremendous growth over the last two years, resulting in it advancing into the Medium Category in 2016.

According to SBS Tanks®’ Managing Director, Delayne Gray, winning this award is testimony to the company’s progressive growth. ‘Winning this title is a huge accolade and is affirmation that our various investments are being acknowledged on a broader level. As proud members of the DCCI, we recognise the vital role that exports play in the growth and development of our economy, and have greatly invested in our manufacturing facility in the last 18 months to increase production to service both local and export markets.’

Using advanced design facilities and a team of in-house engineers and specialised project managers, SBS® tanks are suitable for the harsh South African climate and ideal for export into Africa and worldwide. The company remains a preferred supplier in the municipal, mining, fire, food and beverage, agriculture and water conservation industries.

Mava Gwagwa, SBS Tanks®, New Business & Key Accounts Director, explains that recent investments have seen a progressive effect on transformation, both internally and externally. ‘Our investments have resulted in a positive effect on transformation in terms of employment, job retention, upskilling, infrastructure and the local economy as a whole. A key component of our export strategy is the knock-on effect on job creation, capacity building and globalising a Proudly South African brand.’

As a Proudly South African company with more than 18 years’ experience in the water storage industry, SBS Tanks® has its roots firmly entrenched and invested in South Africa and is proud of its significant contribution to the global water storage industry.

‘The significance of taking a business from humble beginnings into the international arena is proof of strategic business focus, sound business principals, high customer focus, and continuous research and development,’ concludes Gray. For more information, visit
