A star in the making

"I found allies in all of you represented here this evening, you believed in us and you gave Neledzi an opportunity to set out as a cleaning company and grow to its current position where it employs more than 1500 people"

Emperor's Palace, Johannesburg served as the ideal venue for Neledzi Cleaning Services to unveil its new corporate identity. The glittering event held during November 2011 complete with traditional dancers also served as an opportunity to thank clients and suppliers for their invaluable support since November 1998 when the company was originally established as Neledzi Services (Pty) Ltd by current Managing Director, Patrick Makhubela. With a vision to become the preferred cleaning services company within South Africa's public and private business entities, Neledzi (Star), pursued its mission to strive for customer focused service excellence. This was to be achieved through innovation, cost effective cleaning solutions, proactive management and skills development for its employees.
