The 2018 edition of Western Cape Business is the 11th issue of this highly successful publication that, since its launch in 2005, has established itself as the premier business and investment guide for the Western Cape. In addition to the regular articles providing insight into each of the key economic sectors of the province, there are special features on the growth of tourism (spurred by an innovative programme designed to create more direct flights to Cape Town), medical technology as a growth sector and the pursuit of excellence that drives the Cape Winemakers Guild. The journal contains a message from Alan Winde, Minister of Economic Opportunities, and contributions from significant business leaders from Accelerate Cape Town, the Cape Chamber of Commerce and the Western Cape Business Opportunities Forum. An interview with Tim Harris, Wesgro’s CEO, reveals some of the recipe for the province’s economic success. Updated information on the Western Cape is also available through our monthly e-newsletter, which you can subscribe to online at, in addition to our complementary business-to-business titles that cover all nine provinces as well as our flagship South African Business title.

FOCUS Maritz Electrical in the limelight Flagship projects. Over and above the world-first cricket stadium lighting project which Maritz Electrical delivered on time and on budget in 2017, the company’s reputation for reliability has been bolstered by the following flagship projects: • Cape Town Grand Parade: relit with Musco fixtures. The brief was to improve the lighting level to reduce the personal crimes being committed because of poor lighting. • Cape Town Festive Lights including Adderley, Strand and Main streets: for the past three years, Maritz Electrical has been responsible for the installation of the popular Festive Lights, to the delight of citizens of and visitors to Cape Town • Security lighting for waste water treatment plants: Musco’s metal halide and LED system has become the preferred product of Cape Town’s Department of Water and Sanitation and Maritz Electrical is the proud installer. In 2017, St George’s Park became the world’s first International Cricket Council-compliant, LED-lit stadium and the first such stadium to be fitted with theatrics. Port Elizabeth’s famous ground was the site of the first-ever Test match to be played on South African soil, back in March 1889. Over four days in December 2017, the ground celebrated another landmark – South Africa hosted Zimbabwe in the first-ever day-night Test match. The R27-million contract was completed on time and on budget by a team from Maritz Electrical led by Warren Williams. Two project managers from Musco Lighting, the suppliers, supported the installation. The lights on top of the Duck Pond Pavilion were hoisted at night, the process being illuminated by floodlight. Lighting was installed for nine community multi-purpose sports fields. The project was completed in one year. St George’s Park Cricket Ground.
