The SAASR Launches its new website

For YOUR benefit, and the benefit of ALL!

The South African Association of Ship Builders and Repairers (SAASR) is a non-profit organisation within the SA ship building and repair industry whose vision is to help members capitalise on local and global opportunities, so as to grow their business both nationally and internationally and improve the industry as a whole. Protection of the health and safety of all staff and the preservation of the environment is paramount in their approach. In short, if you're in the industry, the SAASR is for YOUR benefit, and the benefit of ALL!

All Aboard!

The SAASR recently launched their new website, opening their home page with an apt call to action: All Aboard. And they enticed fellow ship builders and repairers to do just that by offering up their BIG 5 Reasons to Join, which include: Getting connected with key players in the industry, being the first to hear industry related news and updates, improving your own business offering and having your say in the industry, gaining insight into best practice for health, safety and environmental responsibilities, and meeting the industry's evolving technological requirements through innovation.


Knowing the heavy time constraints and workloads individuals in the industry must endure, the SAASR has kept their website clear and concise, and easy to navigate. In three easy clicks you can find out more ABOUT SAASR, see who is already on-board contributing to, and benefiting from, the association in the OUR MEMBERS section, and then JOIN SAASR via a membership application form provided right on the site. Plus, two additions to the option menu have been included to provide added value. They are a rich resource of industry related information that will keep you coming back to the site regularly: INDUSTRY NEWS and RELATED LINKS.
