Alcon Marepha (Pty) Ltd was formed in 2001 by industrialist, Edwin Dwinki Phala, an Electrical Engineer with a Master’s Degree in Engineering Management.
We were founded with the vision of creating a 100% black-owned entity and our mission is to provide opportunities and job creation through:
- Upskilling and developing our employees;
- Recruiting unskilled labour workers (including students from tertiary institutions); and
- Developing a workforce that can support the growth of the business.
We have grown from manufacturing aluminium conductors for small distribution to manufacturing a wide variety of all types and sizes of aluminium overhead power conductors, used for voltages up to 765kV. We have been an approved supplier to Eskom since 2001, a relationship that has greatly contributed towards our growth in technology, our quality control systems, our Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) policy and in job creation.
Our success is largely attributed to a strong focus on management, an organisational culture of team work, and continuous monitoring of Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) developed within our business processes. This ensures that the achievements of our business objectives and monthly targets, skills transfer targets, continuous client focus and product developments are readily acquired. Furthermore, our ethos, which is founded on operational excellence, strong financial control and corporate governance, is facilitated by a highly-driven working environment. This ensures optimal annual returns on investments for our shareholders.
