KSA product evening a huge success

Thursday evening saw KSA CT hold its last product evening for 2013. The evening was held at Hirsch’s and hosted by Hirsch’s, Franke Kitchen Systems and Sonae Novoboard. Ninety-one members of the kitchen and associated industries joined us for the evening, a great turn out for this late in the year when everyone is so busy.

The evening was kicked off by Stephanie Forbes of the KSA who welcomed everyone and reminded KSA members to book their advertising in the forthcoming 2014 KSA brochure. She also welcome all non-KSA members who had joined the evening and asked them to give serious consideration to membership.

Allan Hirsch then told all gathered the inspiring story of how Hirsch’s was started. He encouraged kitchen companies who do not want to get involved in the purchase of appliances for their customers to make use of their rewards card. The Hirsch’s rewards card will reward kitchen companies for sending their clients to purchase from Hirsch’s.

The Franke presentation followed with Nico Claase humourously taking everyone through the Franke range of products and services and introducing their newest mixer.

The presentations were ended with Patrick Cloete introducing the new Sonae Novolam app to everyone. This unique facility will allow kitchen manufacturers and shop fitters to capture their client’s imaginations by displaying all the Novolam colours in a kitchen setting with the touch of a button and all on their smart phone. The app can be downloaded from:

In closing a lucky drawer was held with the most amazing prizes to be won: a boom box system, a steam cleaner,2 coffee machines, a Franke mixer and 5 copies of the latest SA Décor and Design Guide.

Guests stayed on to enjoy the good food and to network and socialise with their industry colleagues. A great evening was had by all.
