In 2002 Bell Stainless was invited to enter the South Africa Stainless Steel Development Association (SASSDA) international stainless steel industry awards, the most prestigious competition of its type
The work we were doing in the domestic market was not being seen in other regions at the time, or by other local fabricators. We sent samples along with photos of jobs we'd done for judging and were thrilled to be nominated for awards in two separate categories
We were represented at the gala award ceremony held in Johannesburg, South Africa by Fred & Evelyn Bell (owners of Bell Stainless at the time). By the end of the evening, we'd won two awards, out of a field of 7,000 entrants from 121 countries
As far as we're aware we remain the only Australian company to ever achieve one of these awards and the only company worldwide to ever win multiple SASSDA awards
While we're proud of this achievement, we're also aware that much has changed in the industry since then, and as a company, we've strived to continually push ourselves further into new areas of expertise. This is why we now produce a wider range of stainless products, and employ multiple tradesmen with dual sheetmetal working and boiler making qualifications, along with additional TIG welding tickets. We're extremely proud of our very capable crew of workers
2002 Stainless Steel Awards
Bell Stainless manufactures and installs kitchens utilising stainless steel as it combines function and elegance in blending highly efficient work areas to classical dining and living areas.
The kitchen, which was submitted for consideration in this category, makes stunning use of staining steel in a variety of applications. A range hood manufactured from textured stainless steel with a myriad of textured patterns reflecting the light, adds to its excellence and appearance and dominates the kitchen area.
Similarly a pot rack used to store an assortment of utensils was fabricated from gleaming stainless and is functional and looks stunningly attractive.
Finished in the same texture as the range hood, is a breakfast dinner T-bar forming an attractive barrier between the work space and the rest of the living room of the home.
Furthermore a cushioned bar stool again fabricated from stainless steel harmonises with the rest of the kitchen in this dazzling home where stainless steel has liberally added to the prestige and appearance of the home.
Bell Stainless specialises in stainless steel and is at the cutting edge of stainless steel manufacturing and products used in the kitchen industry.
This category was awarded for the most attractive and functional residential kitchen installed during the last two years. the kitchen had to be designed using stainless steel appliances, kitchen accessories as well as stainless steel washup equipment, such as sinks and prep-bowls. In evaluating Bell's stainless steel entry, the judges felt that it ideally conformed with the criteria.
