Company Introduction by General Manager
Opsicol began as a coal Loading, Hauling and stockpile management contractor during September 2010 at Hakhano Colliery based in Middelburg Mpumalanga. We have made significant contributions to the local coal market ever since.
Following that we initiated our second major coal service at Phalanndwa Colliery, Delmas Gauteng. These projects are still running strong and have provided employment to local communities in and around the area. Over the years we focused on improving, mastering and amplifying our skills and services.
I am proud to say that the company I represent, Opsicol is very stable and successful. This success and stability depended on certain contributing factors such as;
• Director’s strategic moves and alignments on business
• Quick and accurate decision making
• Hands on operation
• Communication and better understanding of work force
• Support from suppliers
And the most important The Team you work with All industries suppliers are important but when it comes to mining industry its severe. Because mining operations never sleeps, and you expect your supplier not to sleep and be reachable all the time. The suppliers Opsicol works with I would say they are major contributor for our success with being there for us, supporting, advising us and having very good understanding of urgency and emergency. I would like to thanks to all our suppliers for their contribution towards Opsicol.
My personal opinion key to success is the team you working. All points I mentioned earlier of course has its own effect but the team and team work is the key. Self Driven, self managed and motivated team is the team that can bring success to your company. Better way of understanding each other, not coming to work just to be at work. Productive, thinking 1 week ahead and doing maneuvers in the company. Creative, problem resolving, not waiting senior management to interfere on their responsibilities. I feel myself lucky because I work with such a team where each and every member of management are very supportive, responsible, Self driven and managed. Without you Opiscol couldn’t be here and couldn’t be where it is now. I thank you each and every employee of Opsicol. Without you Opsicol wouldn’t exist. I thank you to our Director Mr.Serhat Bayoglu.
