The DACT offices are currently being renovated and this has resulted in the staff having to relocate operations.

Our official relaunch will be on 10 September 2018

We are working from the South32 ESD Village and will be available on 064 960 7980.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused during this time.

When Darrel Mudaly joined DACT, he was already trading informally at his home; he just needed to develop his managerial skills and to develop his company into a successful business. He did not have a lot of clients leading to his sales level dropping. He did not have any marketing material and his business was not registered. His equipment and space was not enough to complete jobs that he would get from clients. He didn’t keep records of his day to day activities, financial records and his admin doccuments

Intervention / Solution

The cetre arranged workshops for him to help him and his business grow. He attended the costing and pricing workshop, the finance and admin workshop. He was given a cubicle where he was renting to complete all his orders. The equipment and admin support was available for him to get assistance from.

Outcome/ Results


ELCO Aluminium now has a business logo, business cards and a signage for his premises. It has become easier for him to market his business and be more professional when he is bidding for jobs.

He has grown to be a very confident businessman and is now able to apply for tenders.

He has 2 permanent staff member and 2 temporal staff in his employ
