The Company

A Unit is a team of dedicated individuals with decades of combined experience in the film, TV and event industries. Together, we have been providing logistical support to productions in Southern Africa since 2003. We’ve earned our reputation for ultra-responsive, around-the-clock service, creative problem solving, and meticulous attention to detail.

Background

The founders of A Unit all have a history in film and TV logistics and have experienced the unique challenges of working on location in Southern African countries first-hand. We originally created A Unit in response to the need for high-end production facilities and reliable equipment rentals, but the business has since grown to encompass a full suite of dedicated logistics services.

Ethics

As Southern Africa grows in popularity as film and event locations, so too does the impact the industry has on our communities and our environment. At A Unit, we are committed to ethical work standards, are BEE compliant, and pay all our staff well above industry average wages. We use eco-friendly packaging, biodegradable chemicals, and follow a strict recycling policy to minimise our ecological footprint on every location. We also offer environmental management as part of our service – read more on that, here.
