AS­SESS­MENT At first glance a bit of a gim­micky mix, but there are work op­por­tu­ni­ties aplenty in the build­ing sec­tor. You might be tempted to be overly cyn­i­cal about newly listed Top Fix – a prover­bial as­sem­blage of the JSE’s two hot in­vest­ment sec­tors: build­ing sup­plies and staffing. Top Fix’s spe­cial­ist staffing ser- vices turned over R65m for an op­er­at­ing profit of R4,7m in the in­terim pe­riod to endDe­cem­ber 2006. Though that seems a fair enough achieve­ment, much at Top Fix will hinge on the build­ing sec­tor’s con­tin­ued vi­brancy. Whether the group in­tends broad­en­ing its spe­cial­ist staffing op­er­a­tion is also un­clear at this point.
