Economic Empowerment Program

Jipa & Sons Logo

The aim is to empower our long time workers. To teach them new business skills and equip them to successfully manage a business.

1 March 2015, James Ngobeni took ownership of our Hammanksraal outlet, now known as Jipa & Sons trading.

James started working for Pretoria Brickworks in 2001 as a loader. He loaded sand and bricks at our Rosslyn outlet. In 2003, James moved to our Mabopane Outlet, as sales consultant. In 2006 the outlet closed down, due to continuous criminal activity in the area. Since then, James has been working at the factory, learning anything from Human Resources to stock control. With constant mentoring from Erica Jacobs, our financial director, James is learning the necessary entrepreneur skills to manage his own business.

Pretoria Brickworks will still maintain a working relationship in order to assist James, should any problems arise.

Jipa & Sons' vision is to maintain the level of service and excellence that James was taught during his time at Pretoria Brickworks.
