Construction materials group AfriSam and Royal Bafokeng Group subsidiary New Business Consulting have signed an MoU aimed at facilitating enterprise development and creating job opportunities for the Royal Bafokeng Nation in South Africa
As part of the MoU, a number of enterprise development opportunities within the Bafokeng area have been identified and are currently being investigated. Amongst these is the establishment of containers as cement sales outlets as well as a premix bagged product manufacturing facility.
“All the projects we have identified strongly align with, and support, the strategic objectives and enterprise development goals of the Royal Bafokeng Group and should create shared value for all parties involved, including the local community,” said Roshni Lawrence, strategic growth executive at AfriSam.
AfriSam has an extensive network of cement, aggregate and readymix operations, which enables the company to play an active role in the growth and development of most regions in southern Africa. It is this network that gives the company access to some of most remote locations in regions around South Africa and allows it opportunities to build relationships with communities surrounding its operations.
“We are on track to offer commercially sound services and quality products at competitive prices to the mines that we, as the Royal Bafokeng Nation, own and those operating in our land through land leases. We aim to further assist our neighbours from other mining communities and local municipalities to set up enterprise development projects with them,” said New Business Consulting chairman Ernest Mogopodi.
