Set Drapes Screens Turns 10

In a world where people change jobs with the same impunity as they change their clothes. it is rare to find long standing and faithful staff members. Yet, when Gearhouse Group’s set building company Sets Drapes Screens (SDS) turned 10 this year… it was surprisingly easy to find people who have been working at the company since its inception and who were happy to elaborate on what sets the company apart. For MD, Pieter Joubert, the aim from the outset has been to build a ‘company of opportunity for people’ where they can grow professionally and which affords them a means of changing their lives. “I try to treat people fairly and with respect from the sawdust sweeper to the branch manager and still say thank you to each one because without our people we would not exist. For us, job satisfaction and quality product is more important than profit and I believe that producing to those standards will ensure longevity. We have a group of loyal clientele and suppliers and for that I am immensely grateful.” The company’s new look is fun, fresh and funky with a strong local influence and was designed with input from the staff who works in it. “Almost everyone got involved, poring over colour swatches and contributing ideas” explains Pieter, “Our team is now completely invested in our work environment, both in terms of the building and our immediate surroundings. Not only is the look clean and new but our light fittings are all LED, the materials used for the build were sourced from sustainable resources, we have recycling bins in all the offices and we have made the most of our natural light – so we feel that we are respecting our environment more as well.”
