Black Economic Empowerment Level 2 Status Announcement

The Directors of Mr Backup (Pty) Ltd are proud to announce that the Board has approved the implementation of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Level 2 Status.

“We are delighted with this announcement and would like to thank all our loyal customers, suppliers and business partners for giving us this opportunity.

Due to the continued success and growth at Mr Backup, we are determined to enhance our Proudly South African status in a positive approach to our country’s efforts to bring about economic equality. Our team has worked very hard to achieve over 30% growth in 2018 across the Southern African region, and we are naturally very proud of achieving a Level 2 Contribution Status for 2019 with 51% ownership by our PDI employees.

The certification demonstrates our commitment not only to operational excellence but to remain an active and enthusiastic contributor to the future of the South African economy,” says, Nic Thorburn, Chief Executive Officer.

A huge benefit for our customers is the 125%  BEE Procurement Recognition they receive due to our Level Two status, even while we await the issue of the final document to distribute.
