KSA Awards - celebrating member excellence

KSA Awards - celebrating member excellence

It was a special tread to be able to bring in the last month of the year by celebrating those KSA members who have excelled in customer service, quality product, investment in their business and investment in the industry.

Sadly, we were unable to do our annual awards in person again this year so the KSA team got busy delivering them and collecting images of all our recipients to share digitally. It was wonderful to see how enthusiastic the members were to be acknowledged.

Our supplier awards are voted for by our kitchen members. They acknowledge those supplier members who have gone above and beyond in their service to their customers and who delivery a good supply of quality product. This year the recipients were: Gauteng: Seno SA and Blum SA – Gold award, Boardmart – Silver award and Upper Edge Products – Bronze award. KZN/EC: Blum SA and Gelmar – Gold award, Fit, Interslab, ProQuartz and National Edging - Silver Award. Upper Edge Products, Smeg, Franke, Jamson Stone and Niemann SA – Bronze award CT: Grass – Gold award, Loubser Wood Components – Silver award, Blum SA – Bronze award.

Our kitchen and fabricating members are acknowledged with service awards if they have had no disputes leading to site inspections during the period January-December 2020. The following members were acknowledged:
