North Safety and Budgie Shearer join forces
Following a merger to create a one-stop shop, North Safety and Budgie Shearer are looking forward to the opportunity to achieve joint measurable growth during tough economic times.
Budgie Shearer, based in eMalahleni in Mpumalanga, was established in 1989 and has built a strong reputation by developing long-lasting relationships with its suppliers and associating itself with top brands and products. Through this merger, North Safety is able to complement its extensive personal protective equipment (PPE) range with cleaning and engineering products.
According to North Safety CEO Craig Garvie, Budgie Shearer’s geographical position will allow North Safety to further expand its growing footprint.
“As part of the North Safety family, Budgie Shearer will enjoy the benefits of having support and back-up as the relationship develops. North Safety now has a strengthened infrastructural footprint with this merger. Some of the systems will change but the general philosophy of service levels and customer satisfaction will remain the same,” he adds.
“The aim is to reduce costs with local content so that we can pass this saving on to our customers, helping them cope in this tough economic climate,” Garvie says. “Through combining both companies’ unique strengths into one, we know the partnership can grow and develop in the future.”
