The establishment of Keegor Group (Pty) Ltd comes out of a defined strategic focus to closer serve the needs of our current clients while structuring the group for growth and new markets in the future. We are committed to living out our promise of 'going further' for our clients and this group structure will give us the vehicles to effectively and efficiently do this.
Leonard Light Industries' main target market remains the precious metals mining and refining industries, globally, with the same range of products and services as have been supplied historically.
The roll out of Keegor SA (Pty) Ltd in the first quarter of 2016, will see Leonard Light Industries (Pty) Ltd shift its focus more specifically to markets outside of South Africa.
This will be our vehicle to service our South African client base. This separation allows us to better service the ever differing needs of our local and export clients.
Both will operate from the same premises, and there will naturally be some overlap of resources between the two, but in a very defined and structured way.
Effective 1 December 2015, Meltech has been awarded the sub-Sahara sole distribution agency for the Morgan MMS range of crucibles and foundry products. Through a century and a half of continuous engineering innovation, Morgan Advanced Materials has been a recognized name in crucibles and foundry products.
The Morgan range of products will also be distributed through Leonard Light Industries as before, at the same pricing structure, thereby meaning existing LLI clients need not open a new account.
Our ISO 9001-2008 audit, which is valid for all companies within the group, was successful with only a few minor aspects needing attention. We expect to receive our certification in early 2016.
