Michem Cleaning Supplies was started by Michelle Schnepel in January 2000 and has grown from a garage operated to a well-established business within the Mpumalanga Province. We currently employ 53 employees on a full time basis.
The intrinsic value of the business lies not only in the current turnover and client base, but in the chemical formulations that we have perfected over seventeen years. We manufacture and distribute our products throughout Mpumalanga on a weekly delivery basis, and our customers have become accustomed to our quality products and excellent service offered by our well trained staff.
The company has had a stable growth over the last seventeen years and is one of the leading cleaning product suppliers and manufactures in the Lowveld. It is well positioned in the market with established management systems.
In 2008 we obtained a Dynachem franchise enabling us to provide specialized cleaning products some of which carry the S.A.B.S. mark of approval, specifically those used in the food processing plants, kitchen hygiene industries and other industries requiring strict bacteria and hygiene controls.
In 2011 we bought a building in the Riverside industrial area, and we are proud to call this our home.
Our premises consist of offices, a retail shop, a warehouse and chemical and tissue paper manufacturing plants.
2014 was a very big year for us. We imported two machines that enabled us to manufacture our own tissue paper products. Adding our own Cotton range to our product list.
By 2015 production had grown to such an extent that we had to purchase the building behind our current premises to keep up with demand.
We strive to keep tabs on the latest in the international trends and technology and to have ISO, HACCP and SABS approval on our products. We are passionate about our business and our aim is to be the best in the market not the cheapest, setting new standards as we grow. We have passed our early learning stages and are now well established with exciting potential for the future.
Our aim is to become the biggest one stop supplier in Mpumalanga.
