The Corona Virus has turned the national economy on its head. The HVAC & R industry has been one of the industries affected. Due to the lockdown, many HVAC & R businesses have not been able to operate to their fullest proficiencies. The restriction on the movement of persons and services provided has had a negative impact on the ability to generate income as anticipated. The South African Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractors Association (SARACCA) is extremely concerned about the livelihood of all member companies.
SARACCA’s primary objective is to ensure all its members run profitable businesses. “We are not concerned about mere survival, we want our members to thrive,” says SARACCA president, John Parry.
Taking into consideration all the financial constraints brought by the Covid-19 pandemic, SARACCA is offering a 6-Month payment holiday to its members.
During these 6 months, we want our members to make the most of their membership benefits to ensure their businesses stay afloat. This includes receiving contractual advice, subsidised training courses, and marketing publicity on HVAC & R projects completed. The association has built very close relationships with these individual businesses, we do not wish to lose any of them as members due to financial restraints.
It is important to note that only members with up-to-date levy payments will be considered. As of the 17th June 2020, most of SARACCA’s recognised training providers courses will resume. All Covid-19 protocols will be extensively followed. Classes will be kept below 5 people in each session. If you would like to renew your SAQCC Gas registration, you are advised to register to attend the relevant training course ASAP.
