Area Development

The King William’s Town (KWT) area and surrounds is a spatially fragmented area with King William’s Town being the main urban area. The other urban areas are situated on the outlying areas and include Bhisho, Ginsberg, Zwelitsha, Phakamisa, Breidbach, litha and Dimbaza. - King William’s Town serves as a secondary node in the Buffalo City region. King William’s Town functions as a Regional Service Centre and together with Bhisho, is the Provincial Administrative Hub and contains the seat of the Provincial Government of the Eastern Cape Province. - Buffalo City Metro currently has major developments under consideration in three areas of strategic priority, identified due to the need to address infrastructure and service backlogs, which have hindered development. The priority areas and respective projects are as follows:
• The central urban core (East London and Mdantsane): Projects in this sector focus on the redevelopment of the inner-city and the Amalinda Junction Precinct. The municipality will implement a sewer tunnel project which will allow for the development of residential units. This will aid in the densification in the city over time.
• West Bank area: These projects entail augmenting bulk water and wastewater treatment infrastructure to ensure sufficient capacity to accommodate forecasted industrial and commercial investments. The successful completion of the projects will also provide the infrastructure required for IDZ to function optimally.
• King William’s Town (“KWT”) and Bhisho: The construction of a corridor between Bhisho and KWT will support the initiatives to consolidate Bhisho as the provincial administrative capital.

Fresh outlook, prefabricated products and visible marketing in region would yield positive results on revenues of the business.

This business history is over 5 decades, with well established customer base


The current owner focus is on new ventures, therefore the business development side is currently receiving diluted attention.


There are a number of developments planned by local government as part of the overall planning to further develop the region as a logistical hub, by having a fresh approach to the business, combined with BEE ownership structure the business could secure additional business outside of its current established customer base.


Failure to pursue additional revenue streams in business could stagnate the growth of the business.

The owner will be moving and pursueing farming.
