A Century of Innovation Master Lock has been manufacturing padlocks for nearly a century. In 1921 Master Lock began manufacturing padlocks and since then has been a worldwide leader in padlock technology and innovation. From the humble padlock, Master Lock has developed many innovations along the way, like the laminated padlock. As materials improved and technology advanced, Master Lock continually added and innovated padlock designs to suit client requirements. There have continually been additions

to the Master Lock range of products and these now include combination padlocks, locker locks, bicycle and motorcycle cables and chains, Cargo straps, bungi cords, high security padlocks and accessories and recently a comprehensive range of water and fire resistant chests and safes has been added. The latest innovation has been the integration of Bluetooth Smart technology into the design of padlocks and allied security products. This is seen as the future of padlock design and once again Master Lock is a leader in this field.

SPECIAL FEATURE BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

Grow your franchise outlet to the next level Most business owners are driven by the challenge to grow their business to a high profit generating entity with a large market share says Sybrand Bezuidenhout, national franchise business development manager for Absa Bank.

A PROSPEROUS BUSINESS means higher value and, in the long run, a higher salary for you as the business owner. As good planning is the key to successful business growth, it is important to define your end goal. Goal setting will assist in keeping your focus, measuring progress and tracking achievements. Clear goals also present the opportunity expand your comfort zone. Take time to share your goals with your franchisor as they can assist you by identifying new growth opportunities for either your existing outlet or by opening new outlets. BEST WAYS OF GROWING YOUR BUSINESS Business growth can take many different forms. The following might be amongst your goals:

1 Sell more to your existing customers Getting more income from your existing customers is usually a low cost, low risk strategy. This can be achieved through increased service levels, incentives on volume purchases or increased marketing.

2 Increase profit margins

A potential revenue growth opportunity might exist if your customers are willing to pay more for your product or service that what you are currently charging. Also, if you can reduce costs without sacrificing quality and service levels, you can generate more revenue.

3 Expand your footprint

Step 2:

If you have been successful selling in your existing market, you may consider opening an outlet in a new area. Here franchisors can play an important role in identifying new opportunities. It is essential to understand the challenges of growing your business. If your business grows too fast, you could experience financial, staffing and other resource problems. Common problems caused by rapid growth include:

the right positions to do what is required to achieve the business goals.

2 Lower short-term profitability Growth often requires investment of upfront capital for things such as increased stock, new or additional premises, revamps etc. The rewards of such an investment can be substantial; however, you may not see an increase in cash flow or business value for several months. Talk to your accountant and bank in evaluating options of financing the expansions. C

It therefore may be difficult for you to CMY open a new outlet in your immediate K area and you may have to wait until one of the existing outlets is for sale. In addition, the franchisor will not allow you to take up a different franchise concept, especially if it is in a similar industry. Lastly, one of the least considered aspects of owning a franchise or business is preparing it for sale when the time comes. The reasons for selling your business can vary a great deal. It could be because of a new venture, or change in direction, health, marital status, retirement or simply wanting to capitalise on the many years of hard work you spent building an asset with exit value. You could sell your franchise back to the franchisor in the open market or to a manager or employee who already has a good understanding of the business. This person is likely to be attractive to the franchisor because of this. If the exit planning starts at an early stage, you may well have identified someone within the business who has the potential to take over from you when you decide to sell. Your business will have a greater value if you build a strong customer base, show year-on-year profits, maintain the premises and assets in good condition and recruit a high quality team around you.

ON THE MOVE HOLIDAY ROAD SAFETY

Be courteous to truck drivers

Just before everyone heads off on holiday, it is important for car drivers to be aware that the challenges truck drivers face are very different compared to car drivers. THE WEIGHT AND size of a truck as well as the

more time to get going, to stop or slow down

different loads that they carry means they need

and there are various other factors to consider.

Below are some tips from MasterDrive on how to share the road safely and courteously with truck drivers these holidays: • Leave large spaces between your car and the truck. This will help you avoid one of their many and much larger blind spots. Their blind spots are in front or close to their bumper, close behind the truck as well as in certain spots beside the truck • A rule of thumb is if you can see the driver in the side mirror, they can see you • Never pull directly in front of a truck or in a small gap between a truck and another vehicle. A medium-sized truck can take 40% longer to stop than a car

• When overtaking, do not just check if there is a gap but check the length of the truck before you go. Prior to overtaking, also make sure you give yourself more than enough time so if the truck is longer than expected you have extra time • Be extra cautious with trucks carrying abnormal loads • If there is a double turning lane and a truck in the lane on the left, do not drive next to it. Once they make the turn, this space closes up. The driver left that space there for a reason • During rain, leave extra space around the truck as their off spray is going to be larger. They will also take even longer to stop

• When travelling in front of a truck, signal early or avoid making sudden turns as they need longer to stop • Never stop in the emergency lanes for trucks. These lanes are there for trucks whose brakes have failed going downhill and you endanger everyone by doing this • Do not pressure a truck to drive in a yellow lane so you can pass. They can see more than what you can in that position and will not move over if it is dangerous or illegal to do so • Be aware that driving on hilly roads is especially challenging for truck drivers. Do not pass a truck on an incline then cut in front of them on the decline.

Follow these tips so that everyone can arrive at their destination safely. It will also reduce some of the pressure that truck drivers face on the roads during this very busy time of year.

Kraftex FrogzEggz is a completely biodegradable, handmouldable plastic. The name is derived from the opaque plastic material that, after being heated in hot water, clumps FROGZEGGZ

together to form a transparent, pliable mass that resembles frogs’ eggs. It can then be shaped into a range of objects.

Powder pigments can be added to FrogzEggz to achieve different colours. This includes Pratley Glow-Powder, a new glow-in-the-dark pigment that is ideal for making spooky night-time effects. Powder-form pigments are simply sprinkled and mixed into FrogzEggz while it’s still pliable, until a uniform colour consistency is achieved. It can also be painted with acrylic or oil-based paints if desired. FrogzEggz is heated to 60°C in water for it to become a malleable soft plastic. It will be ready for use in about a minute, as indicated by changing colour from opaque to transparent. The malleable material is scooped out easily as a massed-together clump, whereupon it can be moulded. Although still warm, its insulating properties

CELLFAST HAND TOOLS

render it easy to handle while forming and shaping. The required shape is then simply placed directly in cold water to set and harden quickly. An added advantage of FrogzEggz is that it can be reused multiple times by re-submerging your design in hot water until it softens, allowing for the material to be remoulded. Separate components or elements can be stuck together by heating the surfaces and fusing them together, or by using Pratley Powda Bond or Pratley Superglue Gel adhesive.

Cellfast recently launched its new and innovative hand tools in South Africa. The tools are manufactured from a lightweight and durable fibre-glass reinforced composite. The shape and design of the tools allow for easy cleaning and maintenance. The Pastel tool range is available in South Africa in light blue and beige. The range consists of a hand trowel, hand fork, hand hoe and hand cultivator.
