Bosch Ulwazi develops emerging enterprises for Transnet Pipelines
September 2017, News

Bosch Ulwazi, which plays a key role in the development of small, medium and micro-sized enterprises (SMMEs) nationally, has recently launched the final phase of its three-year ‘Enterprise and Supplier Development’ (ESD) programme in KZN, for Transnet Pipelines.

“An important part of our operation is enterprise development, which supports companies in identifying, mentoring and developing black-owned businesses,” says Balan Govender, managing director, Bosch Ulwazi. “Through the partnership with Transnet Pipelines, which commenced in 2015, we have helped seventeen selected emerging enterprises to become profitable and sustainable organisations.

“Our vision is to see SMMEs increase the number of employees, boost turnover, become ISO compliant and ultimately have access to procurement opportunities within the supply chain of Transnet Pipelines.”

Transnet Pipelines – major sponsors and funders of this ESD programme – has selected five emerging enterprises to participate in the recently launched ‘petroleum and waste recycling’ programme. The Bosch Ulwazi team works closely with Vulela Development Enterprises, Dilex Purification, Inkwa Trading, Khe Investments and Total Serve Facilities, providing individualised services, in line with the requirements of Transnet Pipelines.

Transnet Pipelines’ Kitumetsi Ntombela, congratulates the enterprises selected to participate in the petroleum and waste recycling programme.

Bosch Ulwazi provides assistance with planning and implementing expansion strategies and also ensures compliance with corporate governance. Its success can be attributed to a detailed needs analysis and development plan that is tailored to suit each business. The company’s hands-on, step-by-step approach and individualised support, ensures that every enterprise achieves its milestones.
