How good would you be at something if you have been doing it since 1981?
Coal was pivotal in the Industrial Revolution, which quite literally changed the world. Today it is the largest source of energy that produces electricity for homes, businesses and industries. South Africa is a strong contender on the world market, with roughly 200 years of coal reserves, it is position number 8 in global coal reserves.
Africa Droit Energy and Mining is a bulk supplier of a range of coal grades and is the dependable intermediary between coal producers and coal buyers.
Globalisation combined with competitive concentration requires an entrepreneurial vision and strong social skills to bridge the gap between population needs and environmental sustainability.
In a time of ecological and economic change, it is crucial to hold on to fundamental beliefs. For Africa Droit Energy and Mining, we are mindful of the tentative balance between ecology and the economy on the one hand and the needs of our employees and company on the other, that influences all aspects of our business decisions.
Personal and trustworthy contact with our business partners remains our priority. We always do our best to achieve a long-term and mutually satisfactory solution for each collaboration.
Africa Droit is a success story of entrepreneurial progression.
The founder, Noah Zulu, first owned a security company that included guarding, electronics, surveillance and steel windows and fencing. Instead of outsourcing the steel construction, he opened Breakthrough Civil Engineering and Construction (Pty) Ltd in 2014. The new company maximised profits and gave him control of the manufacture and designs.
Motivated by an appreciation of Africa’s abundance of wealth and natural resources, combined with a recognition of its dire economic conditions, Africa Droit Energy and Mining (Pty) Ltd followed in 2020, focusing on the trade of coal, iron ore, magnesium, and other commodities.
