INTERVIEW Concrete opportunities in rural areas Bakenberg Ready Mix founder David Mnisi explains how the home-building industry is booming in Limpopo. David Mnisi What are your main services? We supply ready mix concrete, concrete stone, 13mm and 19mm stone, and bricks. Where did you get the idea for starting this business? The idea to start this business came through research into the market. In travelling around Bakenberg and surrounding areas for other business that I was doing, I became aware of the need for a professional, clientorientated ready mix concrete supply company to cater for those who value professional services. In what sectors do you operate? We deal with both the public and private sector, mostly in the construction industry. BIOGRAPHY For more than a decade, David Mnisi worked in the business world, gaining experience in a wide range of positions in different economic sectors. Having been a marketing executive in the fast-moving consumer goods field, a restaurant owner and at one point being responsible for sales, David developed a sound appreciation of customer needs and the market. In 2016 he decided to harness these skills and resources into starting a business in the Bakenberg area. Where has the growth been in the last few years? House building is the subsector that has grown the most in the last few years. The building industry is gaining momentum in our villages and in Limpopo Province more generally. We currently operate a mobile batch plant with two ready mix trucks for any project needs. What areas do you operate in? We are based in Bakenberg (Mokopane, Limpopo) but our mobile batch plant allows us to go anywhere in the country. Please tell us about any projects you have successfully completed. We supplied Stefanutti Stocks Roads & Earthworks for a rural road they built to connect villages in the Rietfontein area. We were also contracted as a supplier for Eskom’s Medupi-Borutho powerline project from Lephalale to Bakenberg. Do you plan to expand in the near future? We have plans to buy new plant and two new trucks in order to expand our footprint throughout South Africa. 107 SOUTH AFRICAN BUSINESS 2019
