Leading detergents manufacturing firm, Kusi Chemicals this week celebrated its 3rd anniversary of providing the best cleaning solutions on the market to households and corporates.
The company which started in Harare three years ago with only five workers has expanded to open three more branches in Gweru, Chinhoyi and Bulawayo. Kusi now has a staff complement of 30.
In July this year, Kusi Chemicals held a ground breaking ceremony for a multi-million dollar chemical manufacturing plant in Concession, Mazowe, and the function was attended by senior government officials.
The new plant is expected to create more than 200 jobs.
In an interview with The Sun, Gweru branch Manager Mrs Rumbidzayi Ganyani said the company manufactures domestic detergents under the Clean Fresh brand name.
‘We have a range of line products from all-purpose surface cleaner, dish washer, scouring powder, household sanitiser, regular bleach hair shampoo, floor polish and fabric softener among others with the bulk of our supplies going to schools and hospitals,’ she said.
She added: ‘Over the past year we have diversified into cleaning, fumigation and landscaping from domestic and commercial level as parts of the company’s efforts to give back to the community.’
The detergent manufacturer produces more than 30 000 litres of chemicals every month.
Ganyani said the company managed to clinch business awards at various platforms such as the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, Small to Medium Enterprises and International Expo as well as UFIC Business Expo among others.
She paid tribute to partners, brand ambassadors and stakeholders for their valuable support as well the whole Kusi Team that continues to work tirelessly to strengthen the business and to remain the best in the industry.
The company has set up plans to export its products to regional markets as it seeks to expand its market share beyond the country’s borders.
