Olifantsfontein Business Forum
The real CBD for Gauteng
The original intent was that of being a community policing forum. The OBF has evolved to such an extent that today we have close contact with our local SAPS, Metro Police and Security Service Providers. We have monthly meetings at the boardroom of the SAPS where we discuss incidents and keep all informed of any problematic situations. Our members are informed through an extensive email and bulk SMS system of any happening that might affect them and their employees.
The OBF also holds an ICASA issued a license for our handheld radio network and we have currently 42 members partaking in this project. We have two Control Rooms based in Olifantsfontein and have immediate reactionary forces at our disposal if the need arises.
Local is Lekker
Why source products and services elsewhere in the country when you can get it right here, in Olifantsfontein?
We want to promote our own businesses and support them locally.
That way growth for all is achieved and new investors take note.
We are so ideally situated, right in the heart of Gauteng, that it stands to reason that we keep on developing our area. Investment opportunities abound and property ready available. API Holdings (Pty) Ltd, represented by Amorie Bergh in the area can be contacted for further information.
With good communication and cooperation between the OBF and its Co-Operative Partners, we achieve great results in keeping close tabs on issues within our area. All departments of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality are represented at our quarterly meeting where we can table problematic areas and have it addressed.
We closely monitor our road surfaces, street lighting, stormwater and sewerage services. Our electricity and water supply is stable. As is prevalent everywhere in our Country, we do have cable thefts etc, but our turnaround time in getting it fixed can only be commended, and attributed to our good relationships with all concerned.
