From Retrenchment to Entrepreneurship: The Journey of Josphat Macharia, Founder of Tungsten Systems Ltd in Kajiado County.

Meet Josphat Macharia, a tenacious entrepreneur and esteemed member of the Ngong Juakali Association. He stands as the visionary founder behind Tungsten Systems Ltd, a thriving enterprise located in Ngong CIDC, specializing in the production of top-quality chainlinks. Josphat’s inspiring journey is a testament to his unyielding resilience and unwavering determination.

Josphat’s professional trajectory took an unexpected turn when his employer of 19 years, Kenya National Assurance Company closed its doors in 1996, rendering him without a job.

Undeterred by adversity, Josphat ventured into poultry farming, where he initiated a successful broiler chicken breeding operation. Today, he oversees a thriving broiler chicken farm with over 500 chickens, which is managed by his wife on their homestead in Ngong.

Amidst his poultry farming endeavors, Josphat identified a promising market niche in Kajiado County for chain links. He decided to capitalize on this opportunity by establishing Tungsten Systems Ltd. To ensure unmatched quality, Josphat sources premium steel from the reputable Blue Nile Rolling Mills Ltd in Thika and manufactures the chain links at his state-of-the-art business premises within Ngong CIDC.

Operating as a solo entrepreneur, Josphat occasionally hires skilled laborers on a per-order basis. However, his vision is resolute – he aspires to train and permanently employ dedicated individuals who will assist in the manufacturing process, a testament to his commitment to growing his business.
