Our flagship factory is based in Maseru, Lesotho. The decision to set up manufacturing in Lesotho came easily as it’s a Least Developed Country (or LDC) rated nation, which means that job creation is very important for the local economy. We are proud that we have been able to provide jobs for 60 local men and women so far. Thanks to the jobs we have created in Lesotho, we are supported by the South African Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and the Lesotho National Development Corporation has allocated a 2000m2 factory building for the production of our cookstoves. Below are some pictures of the stoves being manufactured in our factory in Maseru.
