Grindrod has had a great year!
From a people perspective, staff participated in development programs and training initiatives and received various accolades reflecting the high standards our people strive to achieve. We celebrated long service awards and bid some colleagues farewell, some retiring after having worked for Grindrod for many years.
Management pulled their teams together to provide the best possible service for our customers and businesses across the divisions collaborated to provide complete supply chain solutions along trade corridors.
Grindrod continued to invest in schools and in developing entrepreneurs. These investments, an important commitment to our country and the countries in which we operate.
The Board approved significant Capex which enabled Grindrod to invest in key infrastructure and further capitalize the Bank.
A new energy is sweeping across the organisation, one of cooperation and passion. A heartfelt thank you to the management teams and the 4000 plus Grindrod employees scattered across twenty countries, for your continued commitment and hard work.
Thank you to our investors for your confidence in us, to our many suppliers and business partners across all our divisions for your service and support, and to each and every customer for entrusting your business with us. You are the reason we continue to look for ways to innovate and improve.
Take time over this period to rejuvenate and spend time with your families and loved ones. May you all have a blessed festive season and may 2020 bring you and your families health and prosperity.
