BEKA Schréder (Pty) Ltd, a lighting equipment and electric lamp manufacturer is calling on suitably qualified students to submit an application and be considered for the company’s Bursary Programme. Read on below to know more about the bursary coverage, eligibility requirements and the company behind this bursary opportunity.
The first BEKA Schréder manufacturing facility was opened in Namibia in 1978. Its first products were glass reinforced polyester poles including public lighting luminaires (complete lighting set) that offer long-lasting solutions for unforgiving inland and coastal conditions. The initial product offerings were a big success in South Africa. This paved the way for the company to move its headquarters and factory to Olifantsfontein.
BEKA Schréder became the first South African company to become ISO 9000 certified. This commitment to offering superior products became the company’s trademark and has driven BEKA Schréder to grow as the largest lighting manufacturer and a leading maker of exterior lighting.
