December 2012: Gareth Jantjies, our technical advisor, has developed a tremendous field of expertise, and the transfer of his knowledge to other staff is critical to the growth of our business.Gareth has trained up a colleague, Jarome Levendal, to offer services to our clients.
Jarome received training at our Mossel Bay factory throughout 2012 and is now qualified to offer operator training, health and safety assessments and plant trouble-shooting at our client’s timber treatment plants. Jarome will be monitored by Gareth to ensure that our clients receive the same level of service as in the past.
"I have a passion for what I’m doing, so it's a pleasure for me to help others," says Gareth. "They say that a happy worker is a good worker, and it is true. Jarome is a good and eager learner.
"Jarome has already conducted a few training courses in KwaZulu-Natal, one of them at session at Vimar Timbers. “He is young, dynamic and knows his job – I was impressed with how he handled things,” said Kevin Williams, Director of Vimar Timbers.
