The company has its main processing plant in the Municipality called Lekwa , in Standerton, where it employs nearly 25000 people. But over the years the municipality and its services have deteriorated to the point where it no longer provide water to this processing plant, despite a court order, there has been no reaction from the municipality and national government. The company is losing 2 million rand a month. It’s unlikely that Astrol is the only company that is losing money because of problems with municipal services.
