ELEGANT LINE CHEMICALS
South Africa’s coastal city of Durban is best known for its outdoor lifestyle and sun-kissed beaches. But one young entrepreneur has chosen to make this laidback tourist hub her business base. Nelly Shezi is the founder and owner of Elegant Line Chemicals. She says that her company provides laboratory-testing services and manufactures and distributes up to 200 tons of domestic and industrial products monthly. Since its first international order to Mozambique in 2010, the manufacturing facility has experienced rapid expansion and today exports to five African countries.
