Ecorbit was founded in 2015 by Katekani Ngobeni to simplify complex supply chain projects to transform the lives of people in low-income and middle-income countries and ensure medical supplies are accessible to all in need. By providing an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic, Katekani and her team ensured that many businesses were able to keep their doors open and create a safe working environment for their staff.
Today, Ecorbit is considered a leading supplier of quality and application-specific personal protective equipment for medical, construction, mining, agriculture and other industries. “During the pandemic, we found ourselves working with embassies because they work with a lot of foreign clients. We helped them develop a proper management plan and conducted risk assessments to ensure their working environment was safe during this time,” says Katekani.
