Building and growing synergies
March has been an exciting month, a month is which EES Africa (Pty) Ltd and Rob Anderson & Associates cc (RAA) have been building and growing the synergies between our two organisations. This follows EES’ acquisition of RAA which took effect from 1 March 2015. This move expands our national footprint to KwaZulu-Natal, and enables us to increase the services and solutions we are able to offer our clients with the addition of specific skills in heavy current electrical and integrated security solutions.
We would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome RAA’s staff members who are adding value to and expanding our staff complement. In addition to Rob Anderson, the founder of RAA 18 years ago, and an Executive Director on the EES Board, the people include Charles Thatcher, Senior Engineer; Penny Anderson, Electrical Technologist; Leoni Botha, Executive Personal Assistant and Kyle Avent, Draughtsman. A big welcome to all of you!
Our latest white paper, written by EES Intern, Jean-Luck Kasangana [Cisco Network Certified (CPUT)], is on ‘Data storage and the cloud’. As organisations become more dependent upon Information Technology (IT), they look to reduce both the capital and operational cost of IT. Cloud computing which facilitates centralised data storage makes it possible to reduce these costs.
The challenge to overcome South Africa’s power and energy issues is at the forefront of our minds. In our latest release we explore renewable energy options and the viability of biomass. If you would like to chat about these options further, please feel free to be in touch.
