Tellumat provides jobs in Atlantis
Over 100 Atlantis residents now have jobs following the opening of Tellumat in the area.
CAPE TOWN - Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies on Tuesday welcomed a R25 million investment by an electronics manufacturer in Atlantis, Cape Town.
The official opening of Tellumat was lauded by the Western Cape government and Davies for creating more than 100 jobs in the poor West Coast town.
The television manufacturer is held in high regard by many of its workers after they were retrenched by previous employer Tedelex.
Tedelex closed shop in 2010 leaving more than 150 people unemployed.
Davies said skill intensive companies were not common in areas like Atlantis.
"These investments are important in general in the economy. This particular sector of communication has high job multiplies."
He said government also intended to create jobs through digital migration.
