Following an 18 month transformation process, Dekra Industrial in South Africa has recently attained a Level 3 B-BBEE (Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment) accreditation, with 51 percent black woman ownership. The agreement with the new majority share option holder, established B-BBEE ownership consultancy Transformation Shared Services (TSS), became effective from February 2021.
“Transformation is something we take very seriously at Dekra Industrial. We regard our B-BBEE level upgrade as an extremely important and very positive change, in that it represents an authentic collaboration with a well-respected, value-adding B-BBEE partner – with whom we share many synergies. Furthermore, in moving up to Level 3 B-BBEE accreditation, a vital gateway is now open to many new tenders and projects – particularly given our new black woman ownership status,” says Johan Gerber, Managing Director at Dekra Industrial RSA.
