Maziya Electrical Construction - Cossa Project Management Services is proud of achieving a 5-star grading with the Master Builders Association
Maziya Electrical Construction is proud of achieving a
5-star grading with the Master Builders Association.
The company was established in 2002 under the management of Isaac Khoza, who boasts extensive experience in the engineering field at various companies in South Africa, as well as in Germany.
The company soon started flourishing, especially after having secured contracts with Richards Bay’s largest corporates such as RBM, Hillside Smelter, Tronox, uMhlathuze Municipality and Mhlathuze Water.
Following on the success of Maziya Electrical Construction, Khoza established Cossa Project Management Services in 2007.
A third component of the company, Cossa Freight Group, was introduced a few years later.
Today the company has a staff complement of 132, as well as an extensive fleet which travels across the country to render services as far afield as Mpumalanga.
Proud of its history and the milestones achieved in its 17 years of existence, the company continuously strives to excel even further.
‘We constantly set new benchmarks as we achieve success in terms of safety, quality, output and our responsibility towards the environment,’ says a proud Khoza.
He adds that it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve a 5-star grading, and maintaining the highest of standards is a goal that he and his staff look forward to attaining.
‘I want to express my gratitude towards the staff. Without their hard work and loyal commitment, this company would not have been where it is today,’ he says.
‘Special thanks go out to Zimele Mthembu and Futhi Chili of our Safety Department for ensuring that we attained this achievement. Well done and please keep up with the good work!’
Investing in the youth
Maziya and Cossa take pride in its commitment to the local community in welcoming engineering students and learners to obtain in-house training, practical experience, mentoring and even internships at the company.
‘This way we are investing into tomorrow’s workforce and playing a role in job creation, and ultimately, in the local economy too,’ said Khoza, adding that it is a privilege for them at Maziya and Cossa to share their expertise with the youth of Zululand.
‘We recognise the concept of job creation, hence as part of our social responsibility, preferences are given to local communities to become involved in local projects.
‘Reaching out to the surrounding communities will always be close to our hearts.
‘As Maziya and Cossa, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude towards the local corporates for their support and the numerous occasions they have helped us. ‘This has played an incredible role in our companies achieving such tremendous growth over the years. We could not have done this without the backing of RBM, Hillside Smelter, Tronox, uMhlathuze Municipality and Mhlathuze Water,’ said Khoza.
