Our Approach


Ohorongo Cement (Pty) Ltd believes that good corporate citizenship can only be achieved through the creation of a supportive and fair working environment, conducive to employee satisfaction in the service of productivity and quality outputs, as well as the adoption of a broad-based, holistic approach that takes the company’s complete sphere of influence into account and considers the environmental, economic and social impact of the company’s operations on the adjacent communities.

Our People

Our people - Safe working environment

As a responsible employer, we take our obligations towards our personnel very seriously and regard as paramount the wellbeing of the people that spend the better part of their waking hours working for us. For this reason, Ohorongo places the highest emphasis on the need to creating and maintaining a safe working environment. Apart from this, we provide ample opportunity for personal development to every individual in our employ, and to offer fair remuneration, medical and old age pension, so that each of our employees may comfortably provide for their families and make provisions for their old age.

Local First

Local First

In general, the positive impact a company may have on income volumes and socio-economic development at local and national levels, is often underestimated or not accurately reflected in the bigger economic picture. In the case of Ohorongo Cement (Pty) Ltd, prognostic calculations indicate that the company is set to contribute a remarkable more than one percent towards the total Namibian GDP. Management aims to amplify this economic impact by giving procurement preference to local suppliers and to purchase local products wherever possible.

This approach is already apparent in that Ohorongo is one of the very few Namibian companies in which the entire value chain in the manufacturing of the product, from bare limestone rock to world-class cement, is carried out using only Namibian raw materials.

NMA Manufacturer of the Year Award 2013

Ohorongo Cement won the EIF Award for Environmental Excellence Among Industries as well as the Gold Award for NMA most environmentally friendly manufacturer of the year.

Community Development

Community Development

The location of our cement plant, close to the town of Otavi in the Otjozondupa region, provides the opportunity to work in close partnership with the Otavi Town council in support of the inhabitants of the local community. To this end, the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust was founded with the goal of improving the livelihoods of those living in Otavi and surrounds. This support is envisaged as helping the local authorities with development of the community and to assist in the economic growth and improvement of the town.
