Originally founded in 1997, the name was changed to UMFA (Utility Management For Africa) in 2005.
The Free State was the main focus area but we have expanded our footprint nationally.
Up to March 2016, UMFA has grown to 11 branches nationwide, with just over 600 buildings under our management. We are reading approximately 45,000 meters monthly for 16,000 tenants and is one of the leading Utility Management companies in South Africa.
UMFA and All Power Systems - a renewable energy company, collaborated to form UPOWER a B-BBEE Level 2 company with 125% recognition. UPOWER’s unique approach to national growth is the key to our success. We partner with leaders committed to maintaining our exceptional service delivery standards. We have successfully provided a utility management service to our clients for more than 10 years and our track-record and value-added service approach can be proven and supported by our number of contracts and agreements that have extended beyond five years.
We have been involved with the utility management services at Tygervalley Centre since May 2010 with a continued value-added service. This service was sustained with no major changes or increases since inception of our agreement. In 2016 UMFA and All Power Systems got together and formed the collaborative company called UMFA All Power (Pty) Ltd trading as UPower providing service delivery in the utility management and renewable energy markets. The newly formed company comply with all the necessary B-BBEE requirements as required in today’s existing and new emerging markets with an accredit level 2 with 125% procurement level recognition.
