MKHULU HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
Mkhulu EDP has its roots in historical Overhead Transmission Lines Construction (OHTL) company, Eagle Power Transmission (EPT) which was founded in 1993.
In 2009, EPT and all its resources were bought over by Mkhulu EDP who as a result of its growth since the year 2000 changed its registration to a (Pty) Ltd at the same time.
It was founded by two main members who saw fit to establish an entity that would include long serving employees as shareholders in the company. This was meant to recognise their commitment and loyalty to the company.
The company has gone through various transformations in ownership, capacity and demographics but it has not strayed from its basic creed. Despite its size and scale of operation, it still operates like a family entity. Some of the traits that could be associated with its family orientated ethos include the fact that Shareholders and Senior Management prioritise employee wellbeing, retention of employees even when there is no income generated, growth of internal resources and general ‘looking-out-for-each-other’ world view. The company started out with a staff complement of 30 permanent employees and 80 temporary employees during project execution and increased steadily to 250 permanent employees and 650 temporary employees.
