The sporadic collection of waste tyres, rising numbers of illegal tyres infiltrating the market, and the impact of Covid-19 on the South African tyre manufacturing sector. These are some of the critical issues raised during our exclusive interview with Nduduzo Chala, Managing Executive
of the South African Manufacturers Conference (SATMC). Armed with a Masters’ in Business Administration (MBA) (GIBS), and a qualification in Finance coupled with eight years of working experience within the local tyre industry, Chala appears well placed to navigate some of these critical issues on behalf of the country’s four tyre makers. We catch up with him on where things currently stand.
