Kleynex Trading Solutions (Pty) Ltd was established in 2012 to comply with BEE regulations and with the objective to merge with the existing Sealchem CC. Sealchem, the original company was established in 2000 and quickly became the leader in mining services, consolidation, chemical grouting, drilling and drilling ﬂuids & chemicals. Experience in mining, drilling, consolidation and sealing date back to the 70’s. Successful contracts have been completed on all the major mining groups within South Africa and abroad. We have an outstanding safety record with zero fatalities since our establishment in 2000.

Aims & Objectives
Kleynex provides niche services and relies on a well-skilled and experienced staﬀ contingent. The workforce of approx 50 skilled workers, mainly black employees, consists of Grout Technicians and assistants of which some have been with Sealchem since our establishment, in 2000.
We believe in treating employees very much as part of a family business structure, where the growth and development of each and every one is valued. As a result, there is ongoing mentorship for younger employees striving to master their trade or profession and grow within the company and progress on their career paths. This leads to enormous career enrichment, as well as higher productivity and eﬃciency levels.
We are currently expanding our chemical plant which will result in more job opportunities.
We have mining projects in the southern African region and are therefore involved in making a contribution to the development of local communities. Our corporate social responsibility initiatives are designed especially for rural schools, assisting them to obtain the equipment they require to provide a better educational service to the children who attend.
We are black owned (52% BEE) and committed to employment equity and transformation across all its employment levels. Management constantly consults and negotiates with employees so that fair and just employment agreements are reached.
The company fully complies with all South African employment equity legislation.
(Safety, Health & Environmental)
We have an outstanding safety record since 2000, with no lost time injuries that were reported.
We strive to uphold this very important record because safety is our no.1 priority and will always be. Each and everyone in our company are committed to safety and tend to work as a team regardless of the company we are contracting for.
We also have safely completed projects at Morocco in 2008, DRC in 2009 and Zambia 2010.
As a mining services organization, our main scope of work consists of underground water/Methane high pressure sealing (grouting) and consolidation. We employ more than 50 people; manufacture advanced grouts on average 80000 tons per month. This means that Safety, Health and Environmental (SHE) policies are in place, with the company complying with all legislation.
Our SHE track record is excellent, having undertaken many projects for the mineral exploration and mining industry for over 16 years. As a leader in the ﬁeld of grouting / sealing, we are aware of the potential risk to employee’s safety and health and of the potential negative environmental impact resulting from operations. Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments are considered an integral part of the management system, with Kleynex committed to plan, conduct and monitor operations to reduce safety, health and environmental risks.
