The company name is derived from the names of two of the founding members, Mercy Ramabulana and Rochelle Rajasakran. Between them, the two have many years of experience in the engineering industry - Mercy as an HR specialist, and Rochelle as a traffic and transportation engineer. The name was deliberately created with a strong feminine tone, as one of our primary objectives is to attract, mentor and train promising young black women engineers, technologists and technicians, with a view to professional registration and grooming as future leaders in their fields.
The Collective is essentially a re-grouping of individuals previously employed by Goba (Pty) Ltd. Together we have a common vision to transform the engineering industry through honest and transparent ownership and leadership. This would be achieved through our mutual understanding of Ubuntu, integrity and the importance of all employees within our organisation.
