Afrox is once again a sponsor of the Stainless Steel Awards, hosted by the Southern Africa Stainless Steel Development Association (Sassda).

Afrox\\$quot;s welding consumables comply with the technical requirements for stainless steel components on such flagship projects as Sasol\\$quot;s Project Turbo.

Sassda's managing director, Dr Oliver Damm, says that Afrox plays a vital role in consumable supply as well as education and training, and, therefore, its decision to renew its sponsorship is a valuable endorsement of the awards.

"The Awards have been designed to promote excellence by stimulating creativity, competitiveness and productivity.

"They showcase innovation and entrepreneurial development, while striving to heighten the awareness of stainless steel in the local industry and to boost South Africa\\$quot;s image in the international arena."
