Leomat Construction has considerably improved its BBBEE rating with the achievement of a Level 2 Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) Empowered Supplier status - on the DTI Codes of Good Practice, gazetted on 11 October 2013 - a marked improvement on the previous Level 4 rating.

With this achievement Leomat has become a truly empowered construction company, showing the importance placed on transformation. This also acts as an indicator of the continual commitment to ensure the business transforms sustainably through the marked increase in ownership with the BBBEE deal with MENSTON HOLDINGS being concluded in April 2016.

The partnership with Menston, and Level 2 rating, is an indicator that Leomat strives to make business decisions that are beneficial to not only our clients, but our employees too.

Leomat Construction's rating is expected to improve to a Level 1 once the Construction Sector codes have been gazetted following the repeal of these codes in February 2016.

3rd Generation Family-owned Civil Construction Company Breaking Ground with BBBEE deal

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MENSTON HOLDINGS, LEOMAT CONSTRUCTION, A FAMILY-OWNED PRIVATE CIVIL CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, HELD A LAUNCH ON 17 MARCH 2016 TO SHOWCASE THE COMPANY’S 26% BLACK OWNERSHIP DEAL.

Leomat Construction is in the final stages of concluding a BBBEE deal that it believes will enable the company to increase its market presence on a wider national scale, secure succession within the company, as well as securing meaningful empowerment credentials. 

The directors of Leomat believe that Menston is a true commercial partner in addition to being a BBBEE shareholder. Menston has shown its commitment to the transaction and to the success of the relationship by investing in a sizeable shareholding in Leomat, thereby aligning its interests with those of Leomat.

In terms of the deal, which is set to be concluded in April 2016, Menston Holdings will acquire 26% of Leomat Construction.  The deal will boost Leomat’s total black ownership to 26% and increase black female ownership to over 31%.

At the launch of the BBBEE deal at Leomat’s headoffice in Richards Bay, Leomat CEO Leo Mattioda could barely contain his enthusiasm.

“Leomat’s survival and success in its 37 year history is characterised by its ability to transform and adapt with the changing times.  We have a formidable and dynamic team and I am fully confident that now with our new Menston partners Leomat is headed for even greater things.  This BBBEE deal is nationally focused and all our partners in KZN can benefit from this first step into true BBBEE ownership”

 The Launch not only introduced the leadership of Menston Holdings but also highlighted the succession for the company.  

Speaking on the future of Leomat Matteo Mattioda added “I am often asked about the company’s future.  Leomat has worked hard over the past 10 years to be able to move forward with this exciting new venture.   The partnership with Menston formally aligns Leomat to our governments empowerment goals, and expresses our commitment to both the long-term growth of Leomat and the development of our country”

“Leomat is currently tendering for works nationally in an effort to ignite further growth by broadening our client base and footprint.  We believe that the high level of our service and engineering works, together with our win/win approach to problems, means that we provide our clients with the best cost, quality and safety standards.  This commitment to striving for excellence needs to be credited to our employees.”

This deal is a milestone for the company as it is the first BEE deal for the family-owned company.  Leomat has always prided itself with successfully working closely with the local communities in which the company has undertaken works through Joint Ventures.  Leo Mattioda pledged that the company will continue to partner with the local communities, continuing the culture of skills transfer within the civil construction industry through ongoing hands-on coaching and mentorship for local communities in which the company works.

KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Traditional Affairs, Mr Michael Mabuyakhulu echoed Mr Mattioda’s sentiments for skill’s transfer in the industry.

“Having been a family enterprise for years, Leomat has certainly mastered the art of transferring skills and business sentiments from generation to generation. We therefore anticipate that the same trend will prevail with respect to the cross-pollination of strategic capacities amongst new business partners. The 26% black ownership stake in the Leomat business could be viewed as a strong foundation to broaden black participation, especially in capital intensive industries like construction.”

Mr Mabuyakhulu continued to praise Leomat for the steps taken to secure a meaningful deal in line with the transformation goals of the country.  He went on to wish Leomat and Menston the best and saw the deal as a great example of true transformation for others in the industry, as well as other sectors, to emulate.

“We are proud to be associated with this new business development where Leomat Construction has taken a noble step of unbundling its shares to accommodate business partners, Menston, from the historically excluded communities. This we hope will have a butterfly effect across the industry which is expected to benefit from the planned government driven infrastructure development projects, but which will need to fully embrace transformation.”

It is with pride that we acknowledge the achievement of our Safety Manager Clinton Futcher in successfully attaining recognition by the SACPCMP as a Construction Health and Safety Manager (CHSM).  This professional status is an important achievement within our company as recent legislation requires our personnel to have this status.  His success is based on his experience, knowledge and capabilities in Safety, Health and Environment.  It is an honour to work with and have such dedicated professionals within our organisation.
