Lesedi Launches new identity

Lesedi is on a journey of transformation. With Lesedi evolving to a firmly established African company, the time has come to rebrand the company to better reflect its purpose and vision for the future.

We have changed our descriptor from ‘nuclear services’ to ‘power generation, mining, oil and gas’ to reflect our extended offering.
