Greatest Corporate Achievement:
Several notable milestones have been achieved by Murray & Roberts Cementation in recent years, one of which was reaching a landmark of 5 000 000 Fatality Free Shifts in January 2021. Underpinned by a concerted focus on its journey to Zero Harm, the company also achieved Level 1 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment accreditation, established a coal cutting joint venture and has maintained an order book greater than R13-billion. Committed to a sustainable future, the company has traded through the Covid pandemic without furlough or job losses.
Hope for the Future:
Looking to the future, focus will be on improved productivities and efficiencies being achieved through digitisation and remote operations. Increased renewable energy generation with a marked reduction in diesel powered machines underground is a hope as well as increased foreign investment into the mining sector and last, but certainly not least, an accelerated vaccination rollout, control and end of the Covid pandemic.
