In 2019 Sharpshell joined the Stefanutti Stocks ED programme. Three development areas were identified and targeted with the aim of supporting the ED partner’s sustainability and growth. These included marketing and branding with a company profile and website, Qualifying Small Enterprises (QSE) B-BBEE certificate, Workplace Skills Plan and Annual Training Report compliance, as well as Sharpshell’s attendance at the 2019 Smart Procurement Expo. At the event, Sharpshell picked up 13 promising leads, which included direct interaction with buyers from a large corporate that is a target customer for the contractor.
Being part of the Stefanutti Stocks ED programme will assist Sharpshell in creating capacity and becoming a fully compliant contractor, so that once economic conditions improve, this currently medium-sized business company will be in a favourable position to unlock opportunities and have the capability to secure and service larger projects.
