OR-Tambo

Globalisation is taking root across the world at a rapid pace. With ever increasing demands on movement of goods and services right through to taxation and larger markets, it’s essential  to finding the right location and partners. And South Africa has moved to ensure that its citizens benefit from these changes by adopting Special Economic Zones to facilitate trade and investment, and create much needed employment opportunities.

Currently under construction at the OR Tambo International Airport precinct, The OR Tambo Special Economic Zone is one of seven such investment initiatives in South Africa.

Operated by the Gauteng Industrial Development Zone Company, a subsidiary of the Gauteng Growth and Development Agency they aim to maximize the potential of this location and invest in finding the right companies that can facilitate growth in the region.

“With a competitive logistics hub accommodating over two dozen international and regional flights on a daily basis, OR Tambo SEZ is the most ideal location for high value low mass production.”

The OR Tambo SEZ is beginning construction on a 7.5 hectare piece of land, and focuses primarily on high value low mass commodities.  This presents a wealth of opportunities in multiple sectors, such as perishables. Several investors have already partnered with the OR Tambo SEZ. With an investment focus on agro-processing, tertiary metals processing, mineral beneficiation, pharmaceuticals, and electronics.

Plans for an expansion phase on a further 32 hectares of land are at an advanced stage. This will be home to further opportunities, including an aerospace component and advanced additive manufacturing.

As part of a bold initiative to invest in the rapidly growing clean and renewable energy sector, the OR Tambo SEZ is also planning to locate a fuel cells manufacturing plant on a 14 hectare piece of land, located in Springs.  There too, investment opportunities are available, making the OR Tambo SEZ an ideal choice for investment in Gauteng, the leading province in South Africa, in terms of GDP and wealth creation.

OR Tambo is an ideal choice for an investor looking to cement their investments in Africa, by manufacturing for export to Africa and other parts of the world.  With a competitive logistics hub accommodating over two dozen international and regional flights on a daily basis, OR Tambo SEZ is the most ideal location for high value low mass production.
