Two ownership scenarios will obtain; first all shares will be owned by principal promoters and their lenders until all loans are repaid, secondly staff share options will be introduced and at least thirty percent will be allocated to employees and key management.
In Zimbabwe we will offer all the envisaged services and in the rest of SADC services and placement will be main offerings.

Industry competition takes many forms, the most notable being elevator companies; Eleco, Clovgate, Schindler, NACC and ZEC. They have their origins (except Schindler who did not divest from Zimbabwe) in the multinational business, OTIS that pulled out of the country. Unfortunately, their exit coincided with emigration of highly skilled technicians and technical managers, leaving behind mediocre staffers to take up positions higher than their competencies. Weak skills base in these companies is one key opportunity that motivates us to take them head on. They will of course recoup skills from our trained technicians. However, they will employ these technicians for a fee to us; thus giving us a head start before we go into the market.
Sheisam’s services will be priced at the upper edge of what the market bear, competing with the old established businesses. The pricing policy fits preferred market positioning.
Company founders and entrepreneurs in this business are experienced in successfully guiding new businesses to success. They have general and specific skills and experience necessary to see the plan materialize. Internal structural support in form of a balanced, skilled, experienced board of directors and a committed team of professional teaching engineers , institutional support of Harare Polytechnic, Zimbabwe Institution of Engineers, Engineering Council of Zimbabwe, NSSA, Engineering Council of Zimbabwe, Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India, Grant Thornton Zimbabwe, Deloitte and Touché , Gonese, Jessie Majome and Co. Geco lifts of South Africa is too strong a partnership to fail.
Over 30% return on investment is guaranteed over the next three years.

The industry in Zimbabwe,definitely needs elevator technicians and services BUT with the current poor standards of workmanship from Eleco,Clovgate,Schindler,Nacc and Zec,I would not within any reason employ anyone trained from your institution as these technicians are an embarrassment to the elevator industry!!! Notably the technicians and unreliable service from Clovgate,Eleco and Schindler!
