We held our very FIRST Supplier Meet And Regional Trading Meeting in the Eastern Cape at the Graham Hotel and Conference Centre in Grahamstown on the 10th of October 2018.

In attendance were the Eastern Cape members:- Quality Plumbers, Supa Shop, Shahab Build, Mega Build and Graaff Reinet along with the following suppliers: Skillcraft, Ruwag, York Timbers, Sheetrite, Excelsior Paints, Swartland and Afrisam.

This meeting was held in order to get buy in from both suppliers and members regarding Loyalty, and to give them an idea of what the Essential Group value proposition is going forward. Arrie, Kevin and Rejoice did the presentation and the suppliers feedback was that they liked our vision and the approach we are takingwhich will give them an opportunity to grow in the market.

The Members in attendance also stated that they liked the idea of working hand in hand with our suppliers to grow their business. As this was a very successful event we, as Essential, look forward to having more regional Smart meetings in the future.
