This is an owner-managed business that has been operating since 2009. The business has grown steadily since inception, and as demand has increased, so we have expanded the business in terms of staffing and machinery. There is significant capacity to expand the business further as and when the need arises. In October 2011 we embarked on a process which resulted in a successful Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment transaction in August 2012.
