Houghton, 5 August 2022 – We are extremely saddened to report the loss of one of our employees in a callous attack on one of our vehicles this morning the 5th of August 2022 in Kimberley. Mark Barrett, Group CEO of SBV Services says, “on behalf of the entire company, I wish to extend our sincere condolences to his family and colleagues.

Our message to these criminals is clear: SBV will put in all the necessary resources required and work very closely with the authorities to apprehend these criminals involved in attacks against SBV.
