During the 2019 Eswatini Quality Awards which were organised and hosted by the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Trade ESR won the Company of the Year Award. ESR also won the Service of the Year Award. The wards which were sponsored by the European Union were held on the 8th November 2019. What an exhilarating moment for Stephenson Ngubane, the Chief Executive Officer. As he walked to the stage his face lit up with glee to receive the certificate of recognition and trophy for leading and organisation that is committed to quality standards and good management systems. The trophy was extended to him by the minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade who the asked the EU Ambassador, Hernandez Aragones and Deputy Senate President Ndumiso Mdluli to join him onstage. This is not the first award that ESR has won, they also won the Service of the year award in 2018 and the SADC Quality Award for Parastatals in 2018.
