At the annual Sappi Printing Awards held in Johannesburg last night, the Summerhill Sires Brochure for 2006 was rated the 2nd best business publication in the Nation; some kind of a tribute to an operation based nearby to the dustiest little dorp in the Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands. Bear in mind that we’re competing with the best brochures and other propaganda, paraphernalia of the biggest multi-nationals in the land.

This is an amazing tribute to our design team Filly Hayward, Odette Robertse and Michael Nefdt of Xpressions Advertising & Design and of course our long-time printers Pro-Print.

One thing we inherited from our forebears is loyalty, and some of our business connections date back to their foundation, through Pat Goss Senior in 1916, and we are extremely proud of our association with Xpressions and Pro-Print, who are up there with the best in the world in their respective crafts and professions.

Bring out the champagne, and while it’s not always everything it’s cooked up to be, let’s make it French!
