Grant Trebble formed LEAD Associates in 2007. LEAD is currently finalising its involvement in the Eco-Furniture Programme (EFP), a project of the Department of Environmental Affairs; implemented by South African National Parks. The EFP has in the last 5 years established 7 factories around South Africa and created over 2 500 jobs within the Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP) framework. Although a little way from being sustainable, a strong foundation has been built through the establishment of the factories, the training of workers beyond traditional EPWP levels and the research and development of new product lines. The challenge now is to make the next step into establishing a sound business model for the EFP and utilising the full value-chain. To this end, linkages are being developed between government and the private sector to further develop and support the furniture, housing and ecosystem restoration sectors, to provide off-takes for an array of invasive biomass materials.
We are looking for distributors, reseller’s and implementor’s worldwide.
