Fatima Jappie is a young female entrepreneur from the HDI sector of the Western Cape, she identified the need for an all-hours, all-year round available geyser supplier:
- Many plumbing contractors, both emerging and the more established, are not able to carry the diverse types, capacity and pressured units and the components and accessories;
- Main suppliers for the Insurance Industry are not open for trade on weekends, after hours and on public holidays;
- Shorter turnaround time from order to collection is needed. General long waits are experienced for over the counter transactions and contractors complain of sheer waste of time;
- Lower rated BBBEE companies gain from procuring from a woman-owned business.
October 2014, Geyser World opened its flagship store in the centrally situated shop 51 Belgravia road Athlone.
