About Us

Welcome

Amava is an innovative investment company with a distinction; we believe that investing in people
is as crucial as investing in industries. We aspire to do business in a mutually beneficial way with
high rewards not only financially but also socio economically. It is this aim that sets the foundations
for us to be the pioneers of true transformation in South Africa by taking a different approach and most importantly doing the right thing.

 

Since our inception as an IT company in 1998, Amava has diversified into various industries by
offering our services as investors, innovators and thought leaders. Today we are a global leader
in the removal and transformation of mining waste into functional products that have a low
environmental impact.

 

We are the only 100% black owned processor of mining waste in South Africa, and a proud member of the South African Chamber of Mines. We subscribe to a strong set of values & ethics, and believe

in operating down right up right. Our proven operational track record and constant commitment to
innovation have secured us contracts with major players within the mining industry and established us as a credible entity in the global market.

Meaning

Amava means “Experience”.

 

A collective first-hand experience of the liberation struggles in South Africa means that we know
what the outcome of that struggle was meant to be, and this plays a major role in the way that we
do business today. It is this “experience” that has forged a business model that is ethical and
transparent in its dealings, and striving for long-term gains and a sustainable future.

 

We see a path beyond the current noise of BEE, a future where our company uplifts everybody and
functions as one united force.

History

The Amava story began in 1998 when Puven Ramasamy founded the investment company Amava IT.
Within a short four years Amava formed Magnum Simplex International, a property investment
company and acquired interest in BCS Net, an Internet Solutions Provider. In later years
Amava would manage a merger between BCS Net and DNS Telecoms to form ONEdotCOM, a First

Tier Converged Service Provider in the Telecommunications Sector.

 

Since their beginnings, Amava have always believed that people make up the strongest constituent
of a business and in 2004 they gained control of HR Focus Holdings, a “best of breed” Human
Capital Solutions company that provides both technical and consulting services to leading
organisations. Amava felt that as other business owners started to grasp the “power of people”
concept, the HR Focus business would expand with it. Today more than 120 000 employees are
administered through HR Focus.

In search of new horizons and eager to expand their investment portfolio, in 2008 Amava ventured
into the unfamiliar territory of Chrome mining. They designed and commissioned a Chrome
Beneficiation plant from the ground up. However, being the innovators that they are, it did not
suffice to simply be in the Chrome mining trade and it was not long before Amava were on the
lookout for a niche in the market and ways to improve and refine their mining operation. It was
during this search that they recognised the need for waste removal from mines in the area; it stirred
in them a desire to make their mining operation ‘Green’. Using their own Intellectual property they
developed a process by which Chrome mining waste is further refined into a product which can then
be re-sold and re-used. Amava have since perfected this process to such a degree that the very
companies who they acquired the waste from are now buying it back.

 

Pleased with their achievements in Chrome waste recovery and with a fervent desire to spread this
eco friendly model to other sectors within the mining industry, in 2012 Amava further expanded
their operation to the coal mines. Amava found a way to take coal discard and amalgamate it to
form a product which can then be used as organic fertilizer and a low emission fuel for power
stations and boilers. Currently Amava are responsible for the removal of 1 million tons of coal
discard from mines in South Africa.
