Pienaar Bros stays open during the lockdown with stringent safety measures in place

As a manufacturer and distributor of PPE products, Pienaar Bros has been deemed an essential service and will remain open during the lockdown.

Due to the spread of the COVID 19 virus in South Africa and in an effort to slow the spread of the virus in South Africa, a “state of disaster” was declared by President Cyril Ramaphosa in terms of Section 7 (21) of the Disaster Management Act, No. 57 of 2002 (“the Disaster Management Act”).

In terms of this act, a lockdown was declared from midnight on 26 March 2020 until midnight 16 April 2020.

Staff safety

Pienaar Bros is committed to remaining open and servicing the critical needs of its customers.

It takes the safety of our staff extremely seriously and therefore the following has been implemented:

· Only the bare minimum of staff required will be physically present at the branch. Support staff will be home based.
