PG Bison is a proudly South African company, invested in the future of the country. In 2019, we therefore joined Proudly South African, the well-known organisation that seeks to influence local procurement in the public and private sectors, to increase local production and to influence consumers to buy locally in order to stimulate job creation.
“Our membership of Proudly South African demonstrates our commitment to South Africa’s economy and its people,” says PG Bison CEO, Gerhard Victor. “Together, as businesses who are members of this organisation, we can help to create jobs, tackle unemployment, grow the economy and convince people of the value of supporting local manufacturing and purchasing local products.”
Members of Proudly South African share a commitment to an uplifting ethos that promotes social and economic change and progress. They make a meaningful contribution to building South Africa’s economy, alleviating unemployment and retaining existing employment opportunities.
CEO of Proudly South African, Eustace Mashimbye added, “We are especially delighted that PG Bison is once again part of Proudly South African, as they had previously been members. Our value proposition has drastically improved and we are increasingly able to offer new access to market opportunities, exposure and profile at sector specific events and much more. The local furniture sector, of which PG Bison is such an influential part, is extremely important to us, and we continue to work with Gerhard Victor and his team to secure commitments from large corporations to buy local when equipping their office space. We look forward to a great working relationship with PG Bison.”
“Becoming a member of Proudly South African also assures our customers that we meet the local content and quality requirements and that we adhere to South Africa’s labour and environmental legislation,” says Victor. “Look out for the Proudly South African logo on all PG Bison products. When you purchase from us, you know you are making a buying decision that benefits the country.”
