Textile mill to recruit 450 more machinists

To fill in 800 vacancies, Clockwork Giant Clothing Limited, a textile company that has recently established itself at the Matsapha Industrial Sites, is looking for machinists.

Having commenced their recruitment with approximately 300 Swazis, they are looking for 450 more. With the intentions to employ around 800 Swazis once operations are in full swing, they are looking forward to fill this quota by the end of this month.

The company is a subsidiary of Bidservices Division Pvt Ltd under the Bidvest Group and already has two lines operating. Says Managing Director, Rob Sparks, “Once established and running, we intend on setting up a total of about ten lines. For this long-term expansion plans we are for now recruiting only skilled machinists and will recruit more people in the due course of time.”

Clockwork that is located at the Matsapha Industrial Sites, behind Cadbury and close to Kitwe Hydraulics, is of South African origin, and was recently relocated from Malawi due to rising costs of inputs, especially fuel.

With an aim to start up their business and operations, the company will kick-start by manufacturing industrial safety garments for the Southern African Customs Union market (SACU), chef's uniforms for the United Kingdom (UK) market and retail garments for the US market. More so, it will also supply to the local markets.

According to Phiwayinkosi Ginindza, CEO, Swaziland Investment Promotion Authority (SIPA), this was a huge opportunity. For the same he has urged machinists to visit the company and line up for possible employment.

Pointing out the benefits for locals in this investment, Ginindza informs that, “The company was brought into the country by the organisation's Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) department. And with this new set up I hope it would stay with us for a longer period of time.”

Ginindza expects Clockwork to be bigger in Swaziland than it was in Malawi especially with the addition of three new lines.
