BOAF Inducts Mr. Grant Roest to 10,000 Points of Light
“On behalf of the Banking on Africa’s Future (BOAF), it is my pleasure and honour to welcome Mr. Grant Roest to the prestigious 10,000 Points of Light (POL) club, as number (BOAF0433) towards our target of 10,000 names in the BOAF, for his leading role in agricultural engineering,” said Stanley Karombo, a member of the BOAF initiative powered by The 1873 FM www.the1873fm.com and The 1873 Network, www.the1873network.org.
Radium Engineering is a family-owned business that offers a range of agricultural machinery from its production facilities in Babelegi, north of Pretoria.
The company maintains its reputation of quality, original design and reliability by staying on the forefront of technological, design and production breakthroughs. Through an on-going research and development program, Radium constantly expands and enriches their product range.
Radium has an extended dealer network throughout South Africa and also supplies to key international markets. They ascribe their success to decades of lead experience, an unquenchable passion for the industry and superior after –sales service.
Speaking on the www.the1873fm.com radio show hosted by Mr. Donovan Van Wyngaard The bridge, on Thursday Mr Roest said his company was started on a Limpopo farm in 1965, when John Roest built a cattle scale, and “its immense success leads to an operation dedicated to the equipment needs of local farmers. Its uncomplicated, effective operation led to demand from local farmers and was patented and manufacture started. Radium Engineering was officially established in 1976, and have been making the difference ever since.”
“It is my distinct honour and privilege to induct Grant Roest as # BOAF00433 in our project to create a visible and accessible bank of people who can be banked on to secure the future that Africa and its inhabitants deserve.
I am particularly excited to include Grant in this repository of dreamers and doers in this continent that is all too often described as dark on what matters in relation to aspirational attributes of life.
“Radium is doing what it can internally to mitigate agricultural knowledge and skills shortage. The company also has an ongoing research and development programme, which keeps the company at the forefront of current technology, Mr. Stanley Dube station manager of The 1873 FM www.the1873fm.com and The 1873 Network, www.the1873network.org.
