Business Development at Thos Begbie: The company has a proud South African history and was started by the Scottish marine engineer and pioneer Thomas Begbie in 1887 during the gold-rush era in the newly proclaimed town of Johannesburg.
As a consequence of the Boer War Settlement Agreement after the British troops defeated Paul Kruger’s Republic, the company was relocated to Middelburg, 100 miles east of Johannesburg.
Little was it considered at that time that over the next century, Middelburg would become one of the most progressive growth areas in mining and industry and the electricity generation hub of the country. 70% of South Africa’s electricity is produced in coal-fired power stations in this district which also supports world renowned stainless steel and ferroalloy production.
In 1989, the management of the company successfully engineered an MBO and Thos Begbie, as it is now known, has grown from strength to strength to the world-class manufacturing, foundry and heavy engineering company it is today.
The company boasts being the preferred vendor to the majority of smelters in 23 countries around the globe. They specialise in providing water-cooled pure copper elements to the pyrometallurgical industry for both wall and roof components of the furnaces. Every item is produced to strict tolerances and specifications in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturing facilities in Middelburg.
Business development at Thos Begbie entails tasks and processes to develop and implement growth opportunities within and between organisations. It is a subset of the fields of business, commerce and organisational theory. Business development is the creation of long-term value for an organisation from customers, markets, and relationships. Business development can be taken to mean any activity by either a small or large organisation, non-profit or for-profit enterprise which serves the purpose of ‘developing’ the business in some way. In addition, business development activities can be done internally or externally by a business development consultant. External business development can be facilitated through Planning Systems, which are put in place by governments to help small businesses. In addition, reputation building has also proven to help facilitate business development.
