Your Opportunity to Lend a Helping Hand to a Fledgling Business – At No Cost to You or Your Supplier

The Steel and Engineering Industries Federation of Southern Africa (SEIFSA) and Rand Mutual Assurance (RMA) are pleased to announce the launch of an Enterprise Supplier Development Programme aimed at supporting and mentoring black-owned (and preferably black female-owned) SMMEs.

We invite you, as a company operating within the Metals and Engineering Sector, to join us in this exciting journey to support small businesses within our sector by nominating SMMEs already in your value chain to participate in this programme.

SEIFSA will work with the SMME, perform a needs analysis and roll out all the necessary services, interventions and/or training that may be required to move the SMME from good to great.

Through this initiative and assistance, our aim is to turn these emerging enterprises into profitable and reliable businesses with the potential to scale up their offerings to you.

To raise their profiles within our sector, SEIFSA intends to showcase theses success stories at the prestigious Annual SEIFSA Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner on 20 May 2021.

For more information or to nominate an SMME that you may already be doing business with, please contact

This is your opportunity to lend a helping hand to a fledgling business –  at no cost to you or your supplier.
