An Eastern Cape company has joined as the first member of Cement & Concrete SA’s new “Emerging Contractors” membership category, created for this important part of the construction industry and the national economy.
Hanlie Turner, Business Development Manager of CCSA, says the new Emerging Contractors category – which falls under the CCSA Corporate Members section – is specifically designed to support and uplift cement and concrete industry micro-enterprises with BBBEE Level 1 status and an annual revenue of up to R5 million. “The category aims to provide important market exposure and CCSA Corporate Membership benefits to emerging contractors who so often have limited marketing capacity and budgets. CCSA has also fixed an affordable membership fee of R3 000 per year for contractors who qualify for inclusion in this category,” Turner stated.
She said up to three individuals may be listed under an Emerging Contractor membership while their company would receive a listing in the CCSA directory and digital listing in the CCSA journal “Concrete Beton”, as well as hyperlinking of the company’s logo to the CCSA website. The listed individuals will benefit from cost discounts on CCSA publications, technical events and educational courses.
The first company joining CCSA under this category is an Eastern Cape business, GloQ Construction and Projects. Owned and managed by Qaqamba Gloria Selikane, GloQ Construction and Projects describes itself as a “leader in various phases of construction projects that demand ready mix concrete products and consulting in design development, tender documentation and procurement, construction documentation and management, as well as the ‘closing-out’ phases of residential and rural developments, commercial building and civil engineering projects”.
Selikane has over 15 years’ experience in the construction industry and, in professional roles, is a member and registered mentor with the SA Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) and Professional Construction Manager (Pr. CM) with SACPCMP. She serves as a Non-Executive Director of the Construction Management Foundation.
Her professional experience includes working for Murray & Roberts, Sasol, and Eskom. She holds a BSc Honours degree in Construction Management and an MSc Project Management (Construction) degree.
GloQ’s operating base is Bizana, on the border of Eastern Cape and KZN. The small town is the birthplace of leading national political figures, Oliver Tambo and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. CCSA’s comprehensive Corporate Membership structure is open to medium- and micro-enterprises, suppliers, contracting and consulting firms, government organisations, provincial and national producer companies as well as professional bodies in the cement and concrete industry which can join as organisational members at various levels of benefits and costs. “The members benefit from affordable and targeted marketing levels to broaden their reach, create brand awareness, and remain competitive and relevant in the market,” Turner explained.
