AfriSam creates a future of possibilities for contractor

Mr Gregory Jerome Kock was blown away when he found out that he won a brand-new Toyota Hilux bakkie from AfriSam’s ‘Get Lucky Win a Bakkie Promotion’. The contractor purchased 110 bags of AfriSam All Purpose Cement on the 8th of July 2020, to build his family a house and farthest from his mind was that his purchase will be crowned with a massive prize. The handover of the bakkie took place on Tuesday 25 August 2020, at Agrimark, in Augrabies, Kakamas where he purchased the cement.

Soon after purchasing the cement bags, Gregory entered the AfriSam ‘Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie’ promotion by following the easy instructions on the in-store promotional leaflet. A few weeks later he received a call from AfriSam, confirming that he was the July winner of the monthly grand prize- a brand new Toyota Hilux bakkie.

Gregory is the second winner of the competition following in the footsteps of Nolubabalo Mboniswa, a single mother of five from Libode in East London who claimed the prize in June.

The bakkie will create new opportunities for Gregory who is involved in the construction industry and has been using AfriSam cement for an exceptionally long time. On every project, there are engineers and inspectors who assess, and they have certified his work to be exceptional. Based on that, Gregory is proud to say that AfriSam cement produces the best results and it has never let him down.

“I would like to thank God and AfriSam for such a beautiful and useful prize,” says Gregory. “With this new bakkie, I will be able to carry all my tools and materials easily. I will no longer have to worry about hiring a van to carry heavy loads”, he concluded.

“At AfriSam, we are grateful that the products we manufacture make a very real difference in our country. But for us it is so much more than just our products or the structures that our products are used for, it is about the possibilities that our products create. We believe in creating concrete possibilities and for Gregory, we hope he continues to build bigger, better, and stronger structures”, says Michelle Reid, Advertising and Promotions Specialist at AfriSam.

Gregory adds that “this is the first time I have won something of value in my life and I am grateful. I encourage other builders and contractors to switch to AfriSam cement, enter the competition and win”, said Gregory, excitedly.

In AfriSam’s Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie promotion, consumers stand a chance to win one of four Toyota Hilux Bakkies per month, as well as instant data. The promotion started in March 2020 but was paused at the end of March 2020 due to Covid-19 and the restrictions on construction during lockdown levels 5 and 4. The promotion resumed on 1st July and ends on the 30th September 2020.
