Siyabonga Ndwalane is making waves in the audio equipment industry.
The Durban-based entrepreneur is now in the process of launching a new range of headphones and microphones.
A product of the Durban University of Technology (DUT), Ndwalane recently ran into President Cyril Ramaphose and initiated a conversation where he requested assistance on brand promotion on a national level.
Ndwalane said, “We have been putting in the work and have started manufacturing headphones and microphones. There are some DUT theatre rooms and boardrooms which are fitted with our equipment. We have our own in-house equipment and we no longer outsource designs, everything is in-house. With the growing demand I have five people I work with full-time and a new branch in Joburg is in the pipeline. I am currently working on some cutting edge designs for the headphones and speakers which I will be taking to Finland next month.”
Berea Mail also reported that Ndwalane currently sources materials from China but his long-term objective is to get them locally instead.
Briefly.co.za noted that Ndwalane was previously awarded the Innovator of the year Award by DUT.
He is the creator behind Turn Up – a local producer of an innovative range of Bluetooth speakers.
