Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment

Powertech Transformers has for many decades been a household name in the transformer industry. Our organisation is able to capitalise on synergies as well as our combined strengths in all aspects of the business, ultimately leading to improved customer service.  We had started embracing Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment as a business imperative long before the country's legislation came into being.

 

Power Matla has been our BBBEE partner for a number of years, contributing actively to the business.  One of the directors, Vusi Sidinele, had before joining Power Matla on a full time basis, been the Managing Director for Desta Power Matla the previous Distribtion Transformer operation.

 

PTT is audited by Empowerdex on an annual basis.  In March 2015, the BEE score was once again verified as a Level Three Contributor by Empowerdex (see Scorecard)

 

Skills Development

In September 2011, Powertech Transformers Cape Town was accredited as a registered training facility by the MERSETA. Ours is currently the only training facility in South Africa accredited to provide skills training against registered national unit standards in the disciplines linked to and embodied in transformer manufacturing including basic welding.

 

Registered on the MERSETA database the facility provides accredited training in 11 national unit standards. 

 

Enterprise Development

We believe in supporting emerging black businesses in a way that will ensure their sustainability over the longer term, by providing management advice, guiding them in financial best practice and providing assistance through advantageous payment terms, to mention a few.

 

This not only benefits historically disadvantaged members of society, but also provides us with reliable, alternative procurement sources for many of our products.

 

Tshwane Motlhagase

The manufacture of Marshalling Kiosks (a transformer component which requires panel wiring) was identified as an enterprise development project. We outsourced Marshalling Kiosk production to a company which was initially set up of existing employees working in this area together with Tshwane Motlhagase. The new company started trading in 2011 and has since then yielded positive results.

 

Vhakhethwa Courier Services

In 2010, we outsourced our external mail service to an ex-employee, Frans Phasani, and his company Vhakhethwa Courier Services which is based in Pretoria West.

 

Socio-Economic Development - Corporate Social Investment

Since 2008, we have been involved as a sponsor of a project that focuses on teacher development and improving learner results aiming to address the gaps in Mathematics and Science enabling Black African Learners bridge the skills gap.
