Portio Dlamini has a passion for making a difference in people’s lives. The Emakheni Group, a 100% female owned company was started by her in 2013 after she was exposed to cleaning contractors in the companies in which she was employed.
After graduating with a BTech in Chemical Engineering, Portio worked in the manufacturing industry for approximately ten years. She worked for companies such as Sappi, Sasol and Unilever, where she worked as a chemical process engineer and production unit manager.
During this period, she saw the need to transfer the skills learnt from the manufacturing sector by starting a cleaning company that would be able to service the industrial and commercial sectors. Portio ensures that her employees are compliant with safety and quality standards and are motivated to do their jobs with high morale.
