Our vision

Our vision is to grow our manufacturing and upholstery business into other countries in Africa and the world at large where we have robust African countries. We are aiming at initially expanding this outreach in Gqeberha and the Nelson Mandela Metro. As a business, we are willing to go the extra mile to invest in owning standard industrial sewing machines and also to hire efficient and dedicated employees (tailors and support staff). Through strategic goals, we aim to create a charity which will attend to orphanages and old age homes.

Our mission

Our mission is to establish a standard and world class fashion design and upholstery business that in our own capacity will favorably compete with leaders in the industry. We want to build a manufacturing and upholstery business that will be listed among the top 5 in Southern Africa and top 10 in Africa. We also aim to help establish and inspire other individuals who would like to venture in the clothing manufacturing industry.

Our Goals & Objectives

Our Goals & Objectives are to open branches across Africa, which will eventually help in boosting the continents economy. By supporting local materials manufacturing suppliers, we be helping in cutting the poverty line. ShambendT’s objective is hold minor sewing training sessions to the unemployed youth so as to empower them with a new skill which will inevitably get them employable.
