The Down­stream Alu­minium Cen­tre for Tech­nol­ogy in Richards Bay, South Africa started off as a train­ing fa­cil­ity, funded through BHP Bil­li­ton and ad­min­is­tered by the Zu­l­u­land Cham­ber of Busi­ness Foun­da­tion. When the De­part­ment of Trade and In­dus­try pledged their sup­port, the fo­cus shifted to pro­vide in­cu­bat­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices specif­i­cally for start-up SMME’s. DACT has since de­vel­oped into an in­cu­bat­ing fa­cil­ity and hosts busi­nesses in the metal fab­ri­ca­tion, weld­ing and alu­minium cast­ing in­dus­tries. Clients of DACT can use the in­fra­struc­ture, equip­ment and tools pro­vided at part sub­si­dized rates. Some of the shared ser­vices pro­vided in­clude tech­ni­cal and busi­ness ad­vice, in­ter­net fa­cil­i­ties and as­sis­tance with fi­nan­cial and other ad­min­is­tra­tion. King Cetshwayo has ap­pointed DACT to sup­port SMMEs in the metal and steel sec­tor by es­tab­lish­ing and de­vel­op­ing their busi­nesses. Can­di­dates with en­tre­pre­neur­ial flair and who are in­ter­ested in run­ning their own busi­ness are in­vited to at­tend an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion. If you are com­mit­ted to start­ing your own busi­ness in this in­dus­try, please at­tend the open day.
