Community Empowerment

Ekurhuleni to Let Business Facilities for Local Entrepreneurs

The City of Ekurhuleni invites township small businesses and cooperatives to apply for use of the Community Enterprise Development Facilities which are let out for a period of 12 months. These facilities will accommodate business entities in smart and light manufacturing, light industrial, agro-processing, automotive services and business services and logistics.

This is a deliberate effort by the City to advance township revitalization and listing entrepreneurship as an important contributor to the economy in terms of creation of employment, economic growth, innovation and competitiveness.

To achieve this end, the City has invested in the development of commercial infrastructure which has enabled the formalisation of informal business. These facilities categorized as Township Industrial Parks, Township Business Hubs and Automotive Hubs, contribute as a driver of township revitalization and the promotion of local business within the City.

Below is a list of facilities that will be available to let:
