Evolving
to give you more

Nashua’s commitment to service excellence, coupled with a long-term customer focus, is the DNA of our brand. It’s also the reason why Nashua has held the number one market position in Southern Africa for 25 years in the office automation market.

We are now boldly looking to the future, seeking to continuously give our customers more.

Our brand has transformed itself from being purely product-focused, to being positioned as a solutions and outcomes-focused total workspace provider, operating alongside clients to help them realise their goals and live their dreams.

Since 1973, we have evolved to offer more solutions, more services and more innovative technology; but one thing will always remain constant – a commitment to live our iconic tagline every single day: “Saving you time. Saving you money. Putting you first.”

B-BBEE

The South African government defines Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) as an integrated and coherent socio-economic process that directly contributes to the economic transformation of South Africa. B-BBEE aims to ensure that the economy is structured and transformed to enable the meaningful participation of the majority of its citizens, and to further create capacity within the broader economic landscape at all levels through skills development, employment equity, socio-economic development, preferential procurement, enterprise and/or supplier development, especially small and medium enterprises, promoting the entry of black entrepreneurs into the mainstream of economic activity, and the advancement of co-operatives.

Nashua (Pty) Ltd, as a true South African corporate citizen that is committed to economic transformation in line with the transformation journey of South Africa, views B-BBEE as a business imperative that has to be integrated into strategic planning, budgeting and management systems in order to align with South Africa’s transformation objectives.

Passive participation in this transformation journey carries with it a risk of being excluded in participating and contributing to the national transformation objectives. In this regard, Nashua (Pty) Ltd continually encourages all of its stakeholders to actively participate in this transformation journey, as it has a direct impact on the prosperity of the South African economy as a whole through job creation, upskilling of human capital, poverty alleviation, and the promotion of small and medium enterprises.

Nashua Children’s Charity Foundation

Core to our vision and mission is the support of South African children’s organisations and community upliftment through the Nashua Children’s Charity Foundation (NCCF).

The NCCF is the brainchild of long-term Nashua employee Helen Fraser, who has been managing Nashua’s corporate social responsibility since 2006. The NCCF provides groceries and educational assistance to a large number of charities, including school uniforms, school bags, stationery and educational equipment. In addition, the foundation helps with building and renovations, the supply of bunk beds, mattresses and linen, and treats charities to sponsored outings and entertainment.

We are proud to be associated with the charities we support, and to work with men and women who have dedicated their lives to making South Africa a better place for its future leaders.
