SASA CTS Eston training at Illovo Technical Academy

MES represented by our GM Dominic Stein had the privilege of training the SASA CTS Eston team at the Illovo Technical Academy last week.

In partnership with the South African Sugar Association, MES runs an annual inter-laboratory competition between all local (SA) CTS labs. Eston were the winners of the 2020 season, congratulations to Vishal Mohabir (CTS Manager) and Nonhlanhla Zwane (Laboratory Supervisor) and their team!

A productive morning was had by all, where the team gained valuable insight into the operation, maintenance and troubleshooting of the equipment they work with daily.

The feedback was very positive and MES is thrilled to play a part in increasing the knowledge and understanding of the Eston team. We wish you a successful 2021 season!

Welcome to 2021 – more COVID?

We reopened today after a welcome break and end to arguably one of the toughest years we’ve seen.
The entire team at MES is looking forward to the 2021 off-crop season and meeting all your servicing and installation requirements.

There are only a few mills that have not confirmed their service and consulting dates and we will follow up with you soon to finalise arrangements. We all pray that we soon see the end of this pandemic and that our respective businesses can operate with minimal interruption.

We wish you all a healthy and prosperous 2021!

Heritage Day 2019

Please note that Tuesday the 24th of September 2019 is a national public holiday and we will be closed on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th. We will reopen on Wednesday the 25th.

In KwaZulu-Natal, this day was known as Shaka’s day, commemorating the Zulu King Shaka, who died in 1828. The Public Holidays bill presented to parliment after 1994 didn’t originally include Heritage Day, and the Inkatha Freedom Party, a political party with a large Zulu membership, objected. A compromise was reached by creating a holiday that would forge a new identity for all South Africans.

To create unity from diversity after the dismantling of apartheid, Heritage Day highlights the histories of all racial groups and recognises all the men and women who have contributed to the heritage and culture of the nation.

Freedom of cultural, religious and linguistic expression is now enshrined in the constitution. The term Ubuntu, meaning “I am because you are”, is used to engender respect for other people.

South Africans visit heritage sites, acknowledge the different cultures, and celebrate the various aspects of our culture such as art, music, research and teaching.
