The empowerment of small and emerging black owned businesses will always be an important part of Concor’s strategy. Our proud history of supporting emerging black entrepreneurs continues contributing to economic empowerment, job creation and overall community development.
Balefilwe Raphala, founder and general manager of Letsatsi Civils and Simunye Fleet Management, is one such entrepreneur. In a space of 10 years, these businesses have grown to become established contractors in the construction and mining sectors.
Letsatsi Civils joined the Concor Enterprise Development (ED) Programme in 2008 and and mentorship, skills development and has benefitted from extensive coaching and mentorship, skills development and networking opportunities. It has serviced projects such as Lonmin and Vlakfontein Mines and today continues to secure profitable contracts and joint venture opportunities with big players in the industry.
After two short years in the civils sector, Balefilwe recognised a gap in fleet management services and Simunye Fleet Management Services was established in 2010. He jokes about how he “loves new challenges and is always scanning the market for opportunities”. Speaking about challenges encountered, Balefilwe says the business only started trading in 2013. Difficulties such as access to finance, specialist knowledge of the sector and cash flow management were experienced. “These are very real obstacles that small businesses face and are often the reason why so many fail,” says Balefilwe.
But for Balefilwe failure was not an option and with Concor’s support the success of this business was secured.
Balefilwe has learnt a lot over the years and believes that in addition to his courage, dedication and focus, his association with Concor has been invaluable. The relationships established, support received and exposure he gained from the Concor ED programme is something on which he cannot put a price tag.
This passionate and versatile business man is definitely going places. Watch this space.

It’s raining fire engines at the West Rand District Municipality (WRDM), and this could mean better service delivery for its consumers.
On Thursday, 27 October, the WRDM received its five brand-new fire engines which will be used to service the entire West Rand including the Rand West City Local Municipality (RWCLM).
The newly elected executive district mayor, Boyce Maneli, Heather Butler, the Public Safety MMC and firefighters alike stood chest out and proud in the district parking lot when the fire engines arrived.
The fire engines were designed and delivered by Simunye Fleet Management who were awarded a tender for supplying of the fire engines.
Balefilwe Raphala, General Manger of Simunye Fleet Management said the fire engines will be maintained by them for three years as part of the package, which means all firefighters need to do is operate the vehicles and put out the fires.
Balefilwe Raphala, Simunye Fleet Management General Manager (contractor) handing over the keys to Boyce Maneli, WRDM Executive Mayor.
Maneli said the move to get new fire engines is part of his Five-year Plan, and part of his 100-Day Plan. “This proves we did not lie; we delivered and the fire engines are here to enhance service delivery,” he said.
The fire engines are unlike any the West Rand has seen before – they are equipped to deal with just about anything – from house fires to road accidents. They come equipped with the Jaws of Life and have a 1 000 litre tank capacity, both of which come with a lifetime guarantee. In addition, the engines come with various other rescue equipment.
“The engines will serve both fire-fighting emergencies and rescue emergencies,” Maneli said.
Because the vehicles are equipped for various situations, they will save the WRDM money – money that can go to other service delivery related matters. Maneli assured the community that the current vehicles used for rescue will not be decommissioned; they will now be used for their specific purposes without putting a strain on other resources.
Maneli said there are other plans in future to replace bigger fire engines on the West Rand but for now the five new engines need to go through the WRDM books and get on the road as soon as possible.

A fleet of four UD (CW 26 370) Water tankers has been delivered to the City of uMhlathuze in Richards Bay on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast.

A fleet of nine Bell machines has been delivered to the City of uMhlathuze in Richards Bay on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast where they will be used by the local Municipality's Department of Infrastructure and Technical Services as the backbone of its Rural Roads Maintenance Programme.
The two Bell 670G Graders, four Bell 315SK Tractor Loader Backhoes and three Bomag BW2114-40 Rollers, which were supplied with a padfoot shell, were procured through two Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMMEs), Simunye Fleet Management (Pty) Ltd and Ihophe (Pty) Ltd, as part of a tender process which also included six water tankers and two tipper trucks.
The City's Fleet Manager, Eugene de Jager, explained that the City currently has five graders, one of which is out of operation. He said the new fleet will ensure that the Rural Roads Maintenance Programme is kept up-to-date. He also explained that the padfoot shell, which can be attached to a roller, was procured to allow more flexibility because it can be moved from site to site more easily than having to transport an entire machine.
Speaking at the handover, Mayor Mduduzi Mhlongo, said that the Municipality had budgeted R20 million to be spent on earthmoving machinery during the 2014-2015 financial year. The yellow metal fleet will be further bolstered by a further R20 million in the coming financial year.
He added that the Bell machines are evidence that the Municipality is here to work and is dedicated to uplifting its rural areas, particularly with regards to the maintenance of its 600 km network of rural gravel roads.
According to Mayor Mhlongo, the machines were procured through SMMEs as part of the Municipality's drive to develop SMMEs, particularly enterprises run by the youth, local people and those from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. He also acknowledged the importance of having the Bell factory based in Richards Bay in terms of local economic development as the company is an important creator of employment for the City.
Mayor Mhlongo said: "We are grateful to have Bell Equipment in our City. A huge company such as this could have established anywhere but they chose uMhlathuze and we benefit from having them here. We are the only City in the country to produce this kind of equipment and it is with great pride that we host Bell in our City."
Bell Equipment Chief Executive, Gary Bell, assured the Municipality that their decision to buy Bell machines was the right choice in terms of the product offering and would have a positive impact on the economy. "Bell Equipment not only creates employment but we have 208 companies that support us locally and another 543 companies that support us in KwaZulu-Natal. Through buying Bell machines you have created more opportunities for the community, for the City and for our country. "
In addition he said that the City could look forward to a long and productive life from its Bell fleet because of the strong technical team and customer support network at Bell and the company's association with Simunye Fleet and Ihophe.

A FLEET of brand-new heavy equipment has been procured by two local SMMES to fix and expand the City of uMhlathuze’s road network.
Plant worth R12-million, comprising two Bell Equipment graders, four Bell TLBs and three Bomag rollers, was handed over to the 100% black-owned enterprises iHophe Structured Fleet Solutions and Sumunye Fleet Management in front of the Civic Centre on Tuesday.
The SMMEs were awarded tenders by the City Municipality to break ground on multiple projects in the pipeline, including the construction of the eSikhaleni intersection, budgeted at R18-million and tarring of Mandlanzini’s main road (R15-million).
iHophe Director Ayanda Ngidi said it is encouraging to see the municipality supporting the small business sector.
‘Thank you to the City for having faith in our small businesses and please continue to support SMMEs,’ said Ngidi.
Simunye General Manager Balefilwe Raphala said he looks forward to this venture opening the door to many more opportunities that will create employment in the region.
The SMMEs together have a total staff count of 15 employees.
Speaking at the handover event, City Mayor Mduduzi Mhlongo said the arrangement is evidence of the municipality’s dedication to empower Zululand’s smaller business players and upgrade infrastructure in townships.
‘This proves we are not just making up stories when we say we will address difficulties faced by citizens in rural areas and develop local SMMEs, particularly those owned by youth members or established by the previously disadvantaged.
‘The assembling of the plant has also been done at Bell Equipment in Richards Bay, creating local employment.
‘It gives us great pride to have a world-class heavy equipment manufacturer based in our city.’
Bell Equipment CEO Gary Bell emphasised the importance of more municipalities supporting local companies and products.
‘A lot of municipalities go with low cost options, importing machines from the East, but whereas our equipment is taken care of for between 12 and 15 years by our dedicated team, products from the East often get less than a year of support from the manufacturer.
‘In our minds, you have made the right choice – not just from a manufacturing point of view, but also by supporting our local SMMEs.’

Acting Blouberg municipal manager, Mavis Matlala, Simunye Fleet Management's general manager, Balefilwe Raphala and CDM mayor, Lawrence Mapoulo, during the TLB handover to the mayor.
THE Capricorn District Municipality (CDM) boosted local municipalities’ ability to fight and prevent fire by handing over fire response vehicles to four local municipalities last Tuesday.
CDM mayor, Lawrence Mapoulo, handed over five utility vehicles (bakkies) and one sedan, which would be used as fire response vehicles. He also handed over a tractor loader backhoe (TLB) that would be used in fire prevention.
The Aganang, Molemole, Blouberg and Lepelle-Nkumpi Municipalities each received a bakkie. The remaining bakkie, as well as the sedan will be used by CDM. The TLB was handed over to Blouberg Municipality to be used in daily maintenance, including clearing fire roads in the area.
Mapoulo said the reason for this purchase was so that the municipalities’ disaster units could respond to emergencies quickly.
“Indeed we have a good story to tell. I am pleased to hand over this TLB and fire response vehicles.
“We are also going to make sure that we join hands with these municipalities in order for us to help those in rural areas.”
The mayor urged the beneficiaries to look after the vehicles and pointed out that the vehicles should not be used for personal matters. “I know that the community will inform us if any of the drivers are using the fire response vehicles for their own personal use. Those who are found guilty will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.
The handover was made possible in partnership with Bells, BB Auto, and Simunye Fleet Management.
Simunye Fleet Management’s general manager, Balefilwe Raphala, said other municipalities should follow in CDM’s footsteps.
CDM spokesperson, Moffat Senyatso, said they welcomed the vehicles.
“We want to increase our disaster management capacity and increase great service delivery,” he said.
