A special partnership

Fourth Quarter 2019 News & events

The joy of teamwork is clearly evident in the partnership between engineering specialists, BMG and entrepreneurs, Agri Arts & Construction (AAC).

“Everyone likes a good news story. Through this match, which was made in the bustling suburb of Jeppestown – home to both companies – the area looks so much better,” says group HR executive, Ruth Black. “The gardens and pavements around BMG’s head office and warehouse facility, BMG World, are now regularly cleaned and manicured by the eight man AAC gardening team, all of whom were previously unemployed. With BMG’s assistance, AAC now has a corporate identity design, working uniforms and tools selected from the Tools & Equipment division.”

BMG also enjoys a close association with Jeppestown’s urban developers, who are committed to improving the quality of life for this community. The Bjala Foundation is developing affordable housing and a healthy urban environment in the city. Many BMG staff members now reside in revamped apartments in the area.

A key motivator of these initiatives, Malibongwe Sithole, who is director of AAC and Bjala’s community liaison officer, had this to say: “Our partnership with BMG has changed our lives for the better. The company has offered more than we expected. We feel important and we are proud to play an active role in keeping our environment clean. We have recognition and a sense of belonging to a community. BMG makes us feel part of a family.”
