East London IDZ

The East London IDZ offers opportunities primarily, although not exclusively, to businesses in the automotive, marine acquaculture, agro-processing (bio-fuels, food and timber processing), pharmauceutical industry and ICT & electronics and BPO & O.

Located in the Eastern Cape, South Africa’s second largest province and one of its most scenically beautiful, the East London IDZ is a world-class 430 hectare industrial park and the country’s first operational zone.

The IDZ programme, which is part of the national government’s strategy to position the country within the global economy, aims to provide a location for strategic investments which encourage economic growth through the export manufacturing industries.

The East London Industrial Development Zone (ELIDZ) is an initiative by the South African government to encourage export oriented growth in the country through the attraction of foreign and local investors. The East London IDZ aims to bring economic growth to the region and beyond by offering investors a globally competitive combination of geographic position, infrastructure, services and labour.

Since its inception in September 2002, the East London IDZ has achieved a number of milestones. The zone now boasts more than 100 fully serviced sites. Adequate supply of electricity, water and other related services ensure full steam operations for manufacturers that have already settled in the zone. Road networks and other regional transport linkages allow for speedy access to key markets and on time delivery of raw materials.

Currently 14 manufacturers have already taken up the opportunity of settling within one of South Africa's prime industrial estates. These manufacturers span through a variety of sectors including automotive, aquaculture, and transport and logistics. The East London IDZ is currently involved in discussion with a number of other potential investors that want to develop competitive world class facilities in South Africa.
