Public-private partnership benefits Lamontville
​Public-private partnerships in Lamontville have had a positive impact on the community through the creation of jobs, support offered to micro and informal businesses as well as scarce skills training.

Ward 75 Secretary, Osborne Shinga said German company, H&R Africa recently moved into the area to extend its operations through the construction of a new plant in Mobeni. He said the company has been working with the local committee and as a result, 45 people have gained employment, two young people are doing in-service training in chemical operations at the company while one contractor and four subcontractors have started work at the construction site.

Ward 75 Councillor Sibongile Khanyile said H&R and Illovo Sugar Limited have joined other corporate companies to reduce the high unemployment rate and create sustainable incomes for micro and informal enterprises in the community.

Councillor Khanyile extended her gratitude towards two local non-profit organisations, namely Ubumbano Youth Unity and Lamontville Socio-Economic Development Board, who have been working tirelessly over the years to build solid relations with corporate companies.

General Manager of H&R Africa, Rudi Van Niekerk, said construction of the new plant began in 2019 and it is expected to be completed in late 2021. “We are still planning to implement programmes to assist local schools in Mathematics and Science and empower more graduates by offering in-service training. We are committed to improving the lives of the community that we serve,” said Van Niekerk.
