In terms of a strategy formulated in 2007, AECI is investing about R2 billion in its future growth. Good progress was made in 2008 in the capital investment programme. Details of this progress, and some of the people directly involved, are highlighted in this annual report.

Delivery in terms of its major capital programme will see AECI strengthen its position as a world class supplier of products and services to customers, mainly in the mining and manufacturing sectors, in Africa and in other territories.

Furthermore, careful planning and investment currently in progress will see substantial areas of land surplus to the Group’s requirements being released for sale in line with market demand.

The successful execution of projects and programmes depends on AECI’s people. Their knowledge, innovation and customer-driven focus are key to the Group’s prosperity.

Case studies outlined on the inside front cover and on pages 2, 26, 42, 72 and 90 are presented as illustrative examples of this.
