BBF Safety Group is proud to announce a strategic acquisition which meets our desire to participate in the “Safety as a Service” sector.
This acquisition brings industry-leading safety services, solutions, technologies and training to our customers enabling the keeping of safe workplaces and trading environments while complying with the prescriptions of the Occupational Health and Safety Act as well as the Mine Health and Safety Act where applicable.
Pinnacle OSH Holdings will now be part of the BBF Safety Group of Companies. Pinnacle, with a current footprint in the Gauteng region, has the potential to become the leading safety services group. It is an established specialist Health and Safety consultancy and training business with a staff of 30. Pinnacle is the perfect partner for us as we continue to expand and grow BBF Safety Group into a prestigious and innovative organization.
Pinnacle will be a standalone business unit under its own brand with no limitation of their services, technology portfolio or support to their clients. The Pinnacle management team will continue to operate the business unit, reporting to me, Alan Fleetwood.
Pinnacle now has the opportunity to leverage the considerable resources and support of the BBF Safety Group local and global presence, as it seeks to expand its reach and service offering.
Your current business with us will not be affected as the Safety Footwear offering and the Pinnacle Safety Services offering will continue to serve their respective customers in their markets. Some overlap of customers will happen and will provide the opportunity to enhance the business partnerships where this occurs.
This does create the opportunity for current BBF Safety Group customers to have seamless access to the professional services of Pinnacle as regards their Safety and Health needs and obligations.
The same dedicated BBF Safety Group and Pinnacle employees you work with today will be here tomorrow. There will be no staff rationalization as a result of this merger. This merger serves to further enhance and entrench our position as a deep-rooted South African company.
This is an exciting time for BBF Safety Group and Pinnacle OSH Holdings. Together we look forward to this opportunity to widen our catalogue portfolio and customer base.
We will share more information with you about the service offering in due course.
