Brands Unplugged

What does your company do?

Brands Unplugged is a shopfitting and manufacturing company, specialising in retail space within South Africa.

What is your biggest success?

Being recognised as an internationally accredited shopfitter for luxury brands within the cosmetics and retail sector. We started as a one woman show, with no capital and grew organically into a successful operation we are fiercely proud of.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Without a doubt, Covid-19 was the biggest stumbling block for our company. Months of taking no salaries so we could pay our staff and ensuing retrenchments. Fortunately we held on and have come back stronger than we were before.
