Our Focus is on the Spirit, Beyond the Letter of Transformation

Ecolab South Africa is fully committed to broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE). Our aim is to play an active role in the transformation processes in a manner that is sustainable, credible and of benefit to Ecolab, our stakeholders and the country as a whole.  

We are determined to broaden the base of the South African economy and promote participation in the economy by all citizens.


Ezomnotho Chemical Solutions (Pty) Ltd.
A new, majority black-owned chemical and equipment supplier company

Ecolab South Africa is determined to broaden the base of the South African economy, yet as a multi-national corporation we are acutely aware of the ownership challenges in our efforts to comply with B-BBEE legislation. As a result, we have designed and implemented, through legal opinion and in conjunction with our B-BBEE consultants, a model which we believe will satisfy all aspects of the current B-BBEE legislation and be of benefit to the market.

Ecolab (Pty) Ltd, incorporating Nalco Africa (Pty) Ltd which is 100% owned by Ecolab Inc., has embarked on an enterprise development initiative in fulfillment of our commitment to transformation. 

A new majority black-owned Company, Ezomnotho Chemical Solutions (Pty) Ltd, has been created and started trading on Monday, 27 March 2017 and is the exclusive B-BBEE partner to Ecolab (Pty) Ltd and Nalco Africa (Pty) Ltd. 

Customers now have the opportunity to source Ecolab products, services and expertise through an expert B-BBEE value adding supplier, thereby ensuring their stability, continued experience of Ecolab exponential return on investment whilst simultaneously contributing to their B-BBEE procurement rating.
