In November 2006, Kumba Resources Limited unbundled and Kumba’s coal and other assets merged with Eyesizwe Coal to create Exxaro Resources Limited. They have since grown to become one of the largest and foremost black-empowered coal and heavy mineral companies in South Africa, with other business interests around the world in Europe, the United States of America, and Australia. Their asset portfolio includes coal operations and investments in iron ore, pigment manufacturing, renewable energy (wind), and residual base metals.
In the last decade, Exxaro has established itself as an organisation that is respected by its peers for its innovation, ethics, and integrity. They’ve achieved this by acknowledging that they exist in a greater context. They are here to power better lives today and tomorrow, in South Africa and beyond.
At Exxaro, their vision is as simple as this: they want to make a positive impact on the world. They aim to power better lives in Africa and beyond by responsibly investing in commodities that will sustain life on the continent.
This goal is being realised by supplying basic and primary needs, the things that keep them functioning as a society, through energy, water, and food. They manage to do all this through their primary commodity – coal – which they are using to fuel their future. Through their growth and innovation, they are working towards becoming an unstoppable source of endless possibilities.
They know none of this is possible without their people. Their imagination and passion is what constantly nourishes their journey to change the world for the better.
Exxaro encourages collaboration, commitment and creativity in an environment that promotes safety, health, and welfare – and where respect and equality are prerequisites. They know that their highly qualified workforce will become the industry leaders of tomorrow.See more
