Bambu is short for Bambuseae which is the tropical woody bamboo that is used for a variety of common reasons including scaffolding, building houses and also furniture. Bambu is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, it can grow 3 feet per day and up to 100 feet! it is also 99% of the Giant Pandas diet, which we love. We feel that the name, brand and synergy between the plant is closely aligned with our vision. We aim to maintain the growth of Bambu, we want to develop our people, our brand and value added service offering. Like Bambu we aim to be strong, reliable, versatile and quick to develop. We are committed to identify the best raw and untapped talent in the market place, we will work with them, develop their skills, mindset and potential. We believe there are many future business leaders that we can assist and we want to build a strong team and brand that our people and communities can be proud of.
We intend to leave a positive legacy in the communities in which we work.
