Klein Begin Laundry

SEPTEMBER 26, 2011

One of Spier farm’s challenges has been finding ways of not only transforming its supply chain and use small black-owned businesses, but also to create sustainable jobs at Spier and encourage a spirit of enterprise development that would in turn create wealth and jobs for the local community.Instead of outsourcing laundry, we set up a laundry onsite using two containers. The infrastructure was built and machines bought before asking for tenders to run it. When the project was launched in 2004, the laundry had three staff. It now has a total of six staff members.
