Startup Grind Khayelitsha is proud to host Ntombie Nonxuba, founder and Director of Rise Uniforms, a factory that supplies quality safety clothing, uniform, corporate wear and complementary garments based in Teguka Business Park, Philippi Industrial. Rise Uniforms supplies retail shops, hospitals, schools and corporates across South Africa and some of their clients include Pick n Pay as well as Boxer Stores.
The business started in 2007 with an informal trading service in Khayelitsha, she never dreamt she would land a contract of the Pick n Pay magnitude. Nonxuba said in 2010 they formally registered their company so they could approach schools and churches around Khayelitsha for business but they later managed to get the big clients.
“Having a big corporate company such as Pick n Pay as our biggest client has made a huge difference to the growth of our business, especially in changing the lives of our employees who are able to support their families today.” She said.
Join us for our second Startup Grind Khayelitsha event on Saturday 6 July 2019 at Khayelitsha Bandwidth Barn from 10h00 to 13h00. Get your tickets now!
