A tempest at Upi Kitchens

Matjiwa Steven Upi always had a passion for owning his own business so he decided to start Upi Kitchens & Joinery Designs after he was retrenched from his work at a local joinery in 2004.
“When working at a joinery company, I did a lot of work in my spare time and practised to become perfect. I enjoyed joinery and decided to start my own company when I was suddenly unemployed. I started off in the garage at home in 2005 and today we operate from our own workshop and with a staff complement of 16,” he said.
