    Striving for Excellence

    Ferdi has been with Aldes since 2002 starting off as a franchisee in Middelburg, Mpumalanga. In 2010 he assumed control over the entire Aldes franchise group and has subsequently established Aldes Finance, Aldes Training Academy and Aldes Mining.

    Ferdi’s passion is fuel by believing that:
    Knowledge is power.
    Knowledge creates wealth. Knowledge is the one thing that can be shared and handed out, where both the giver and receiver gain.
    Once acquired, knowledge can never be lost!
