Our founder, Hein van Vlastuin, comes from The Netherlands. We work for both South African and international companies. Abangani Media works according to internationally accepted standards.
‘Abangani’ is an isiZulu word, which means ‘friends’. We as Abangani Media would like to make friends with people from different backgrounds, cultures and continents. We’d like to make a positive impact in South Africa, while we work for companies all over the world.
Most of our solutions are online & cloud based. Our designers and developers can assist you to develop an integrated online presence. We like to take care of the whole package. We develop website and apps in various frameworks and platforms.
I am Hein van Vlastuin. I have been in South Africa since 2011. Originally I came as an academic researcher, and I was meant to stay for six months only, but I decided to stay longer. I love South Africa and its people.
I have been working as a website developer for over 15 years. As a young student I started my own website development company, Heinosoft. After running the company for a couple of years, I had the opportunity to sell the company.
In 2015 I decided to start working for myself again. It is my mission to build an innovative company which makes a positive impact in South Africa. I believe that South Africa is well equipped to build a strong IT industry.
Originally I started working by myself, but currently we have employed close to ten developers and designers.
