Productive Prospects with Manufacturing
Manufacturing Circle executive director, Philippa Rodseth, has called manufacturing an “engine of growth for the South African economy.” The ability to build and create with innovation and confidence is key for this ever-fluctuating sector. A global trend for eco-consciousness and local pride can only strengthen our country’s drive to produce more goods while importing fewer foreign products. Our increased open economy also has the international market ready and willing to enter into business agreements with our country, so long as processes remain legally compliant.
Finding stability in the Construction Industry
Building your manufacturing business can be an extremely lucrative yet risky operation if not done with the right partners. Our country’s restrictive laws and union sway make for difficult employment conditions. Unplanned power outages, industrial action, and sudden legal amendments are also factors which can endanger your investment. Fortunately, we’re readily available with the meticulous solutions needed to combat these risks and increase the reward.
