Yekani Manufacturing has launched a R1-billion factory in East London, where it will produce tablets, laptops, and smartphones.
The company, which is part of the Yekani Group, said the factory will create 1,000 jobs – with its new facility covering 28,000 square metres.
Yekani said it wants to be Africa’s leading international technology innovator and help to “secure Africa’s rightful place in international standards in technology”.
It is doing this by offering affordable mobile phones to the lower-LSM market, with the aim of promoting the use of advanced technologies.
“Yekani Technology aims to be the largest smartphone company in South Africa, with Yekani-branded mobile phones,” it said.
