Zhauns Group Profile

The Zhauns Group of Companies was founded by Zhaun Ahmed (current CEO) in 1970. Over time, the company has expanded to such an extent that it is now Africa’s leading supplier of machines for small- and medium-sized businesses in the manufacturing industry.
Over the years, we’ve built up a great team of competent employees. Our team members are encouraged to continuously improve on our services to maintain a competitive edge, with an emphasis on innovation, performance and customer satisfaction.
In addition to helping individual business owners set up successful enterprises, and assisting Governments in Africa, set up poverty alleviation and rural development projects, the Zhauns Group is also involved in property investment.
From our headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa – and our two branches in Johannesburg and Durban – we offer assistance to entrepreneurs across the African continent.

Creating your own financial security is key

Zhauns is constantly aware of the rising unemployment rate and lack of opportunities for South Aricans and Africans. Economists the world over agree that future employment will come from the small-to-medium business sector. It’s up to every one of us to ensure that small businesses succeed. SMEs need to be supported and considered when services are needed or when goods have to be bought. Zhauns supports SMEs wholeheartedly and wants our entrepreneurs to succeed.
As a solution to the poverty and employment crisis in South Africa, and elsewhere on the African continent, Zhauns offers affordable business opportunities in the manufacturing industry. We assist business owners in manufacturing household products that will always be in demand, creating long-term, sustainable businesses.
