The SA Paint Manufacturing Association (SAPMA) executive committee will again be led by the now familiar trio of stalwarts comprising Terry Ashmore (Chairperson), Sanjeev Bhatt and Aggie Argyrou (Vice-Chairpersons) for the year ahead following the election of the Exco at the recent SAPMA annual general meeting at Zwartkop, Pretoria.
“It is now the seventh year in succession that these three busy top executives in the coatings industry have voluntarily agreed to donate many hours of their precious spare time to assist SAPMA and help drive it towards its goals. The Association is deeply appreciative of the selfless and continuing input from Terry, Sanjeev and Aggie,” Deryk Spence, SAPMA Executive Director, commented.
