Situated to the north of Bryanston, bounded by William Nicol, Main Road & Sloane Street, some of the country’s leading technology, communications and other blue-chip companies have laid down their roots for future growth.
These companies include Dimension Data (The Campus); Internet Solutions; Microsoft; Google SA; Software AG; Tiger Brands; Samsung; Shell South Africa; Omnia Holdings; SacOil; Nozala Investments; Reed Exhibitions; GlaxoSmithKline; Nestle; Ogilvy; AVI; MWEB Connect; KFC SA; Adcorp Holdings; Fortress Fund; BBE Group – Bluhm Burton Engineering; Emira Property Fund; to name some of the interesting large business brands in the area.
Blue-chip companies have a critical role to play in their local communities, not only for their contribution to the national and local fiscus, and the creation of job and career opportunities, but also for the upliftment and upkeep of the aesthetics of their local surrounds.
Blue-chips are important role models for what can become of good, honest entrepreneurial endeavour (many having begun as small entrepreneurial concepts themselves), and most have immaculate training resources, capacity, and social responsibility spend that can be applied to mentoring and making a difference to the next generation of significant entrepreneurs in their community – and most do! They need to be welcomed, celebrated & lauded in our communities.
