HISTORY OF AKATA – LESSON 1

Akata Holdings (Pty) Ltd incorporates several subsidiary companies with related but distinct products, services, markets, and opportunities. The spheres of operation in which Akata excels are within the smelting, mining, and industrial sectors, as well as involvement in the agricultural infrastructure and project management sectors. Akata has mainly been operating within the Southern African Developing Economic Communities (SADEC) region.

The first of the three key subsidiary companies, Akata Holdings (Pty) Ltd (Akata) was born out of Engineering and Design Works cc. This was formed in 1999 by one of the company’s current Directors and, as a result of the rapid growth and future potential of the founding company, Akata was inaugurated to enable the partners to realise their goal of creating a multifaceted group of companies to deliver on their vision and mission.

Akata Engineering is a multi-disciplinary engineering services provider that specializes in turnkey projects from pre-feasibility to final commissioning. The company is also an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of a range of ventilation, cooling, air pollution control, materials handling, and wastewater management equipment. In-house manufacturing facilities enhance the company’s capabilities with a capacity to manage projects requiring light to heavy structural fabrication, as well as plate work in mild steel and stainless steel material.

The company’s drive towards “Engineering Sustainability” by continuously developing products, technology, and resources to ensure the sustained profitability and growth of its own and its customer’s businesses, spurred the establishment of Akata Mechanised Mining Services.

This subsidiary is a specialized mining contractor providing design, development, and production expertise required in the South African hard rock mining industry which has recognized the urgent need to introduce mechanisation and new technology into its operations in order to remain globally competitive. Using experienced personnel and proven methods, together with a “zero-tolerance safety policy” and a willingness to embrace new technologies, Akata Mining is able to provide real productivity benefits and cost savings to the mining industry and is ideally positioned to contribute to this new era in the production workplace.

Whilst the agricultural sector may seem far removed from the aforementioned engineering and mining industries, “Engineering Sustainability” entails a visionary approach to the opportunities presented within all areas of operation. This coupled with the company directors’ passion for, and expertise in the agricultural realm allows Akata Agritech (Pty) Ltd, to be leaders in agricultural engineering of turnkey agricultural projects and solutions for clients, communities, and investors in the multiple economic sectors in which the Group operates.

Akata aims to, at all times maintain the utmost levels of service for our customers and strives to be the preferred supplier of professional, cost-effective, solutions in all spheres of its business opportunities.
