BLACK ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT Airgro has always been an equal opportunity company that does not discriminate with regard to race, sex or religion.

Both Tom Meintjes and Gerrit du Preez have since the early 1970's trained people of all races, sexes and religions to positions previously reserved for whites. Their positions included:
  • Draughtsmen / -ladies
  • CAD Operators
  • Estimating clerks
  • Technicians
  • Sheetmetal Artisans
  • Electricians
  • Air Conditioning Servicemen
For the past few years Metalgama Erection and Borges Fabrication and Erection have been used as sub-contractors to install ducting and pipework respectively. This accounts for approximately 85% of the on-site labour component of the average air-conditioning installation.

Both the above-mentioned companies work for Airgro on a dedicated and exclusive basis. As a result of this relationship Airgro has been instrumental in getting both these companies to start new business, where previously disadvantaged employees own a substantial portion of the business.

This initiative is now being developed further by the assistance of individuals to start their own contracting Companies to provide services to Airgro and other contracting companies.

Airgro embraces the calls to change and transform society and business in South Africa and will continue to implement strategies to further these goals.
