Discover WorkZone: Where History and Innovation Converge

The rise of technology and innovation hubs in South Africa drives the demand for coworking spaces, particularly in areas with a concentration of startups and tech companies. Located on the historic grounds of The Synthetic Latex Company, our coworking space boasts some unique features that won’t easily be found anywhere in the Free-State.

The Synthetic Latex Company: A Journey Through Time

Founded in 1967, The Synthetic Latex Company (SLC) has been a pioneer in latex manufacturing technology. In 2017, SLC marked its 50th anniversary, a milestone celebrated with pride. Acquired from Karbochem Holdings, it evolved into a fully-fledged industrial park with a range of diverse operations, forming the base of the SLC group, and paving the way for continued innovation.

The Unique Perspective of WorkZone

WorkZone forms part of the SLC Group of companies. Although the company is based on the historical site of The Synthetic Latex Company, the coworking space operates independently. Visitors to our coworking space not only gain access to a vibrant work environment but also the opportunity to enjoy a historical view within an industrial setting.

Location and Accessibility

A stone’s throw from Sasolburg. Bunsen St, Industrial Zone 2, is not just an address; it’s a geographical bridge to Sasolburg’s economic heart. Located just a short distance outside Sasolburg, WorkZone offers the convenience of a workspace on the periphery of the bustling city, providing a serene and focused atmosphere.

Your ideal flexible working environment, away from your home environment

As more individuals and startups enter the business scene, the need for affordable and flexible workspaces becomes crucial. The common thread among these individuals is the need for a flexible, collaborative, and professional workspace that aligns with their specific work requirements and lifestyle preferences.

Coworking spaces cater to this diverse group by offering shared resources, networking opportunities, and a supportive community. Some corporate employees, especially company representatives, salespersons or individuals who travel frequently or work remotely, may use coworking spaces as a flexible and professional alternative to working from home or a traditional office.

The community aspect of coworking spaces fosters a sense of support and camaraderie. Knowing that others are facing similar challenges or goals creates a shared experience, promoting a positive mental outlook.

In addition to the above WorkZone offers access to essential resources and quiet load-shedding free workspaces. WorkZone’s commitment to creating a professional and accommodating atmosphere is emphasized by amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen and boardrooms for interviews and meetings, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a dynamic and well-rounded coworking space. Coworkers can also order a delicious lunch from our industrial-themed cafeteria; Foodzone.

Come and enjoy a day at our workspace, surrounded by the echoes of industrial progress, all while contributing to your own professional journey. For more information (or to book a free session), please send an email to
