Our Story

AcuTrade was founded by Glenn Thomas in 2013 with a total capital of R20 000.00 to his name unfairly dismissed from his job and unemployed. The front verandah of his house was his warehouse where he held the stock that he bought with the last of his money and went to market with a brand new type of cleaning product that nobody in the Port Elizabeth region knew or heard about, BACTERIA based ENZYMATIC products that brought a whole new dimension to the cleaning industry into the Eastern Cape. After 1 year of trading, the bottling facility was set up and opened. For 8 months Glenn mixed, bottled, labelled, sold and delivered by himself working extraordinary long hours to service and deliver to our client base on time.

AcuTrade blends and bottles biological products and manufactures Biochemicals, trades in cleaning equipment, PPoE, site cleaning equipment like leaf blowers, chain saws, hedge trimmers etc and related applications for the major property, facilities management, cleaning, hygiene, surface sanitiser, hand sanitiser 70% alcohol, food processing, restaurant chains, water treatment works, agricultural sector, Civils, food packing facilities, as well as smaller distributors and companies in South Africa.

We uniquely bottle local based bacterial strains, without having to import any material components from overseas. The bacteria we use in our formulations therefore have an advantage over the other imported products as our bacteria doesn’t have to adapt to the climate before getting to work, allowing them to start eating away faster, reproduce quicker, break down dirts immediately, and live longer.

We have also opened a Specialised Chemical division where we formulate and manufacture specialised chemicals for your specific application and requirement, we currently supply many specialised industries for their specific needs.

Acutrade are improving daily in the science and biotechnology of our products to keep ourselves in front of our competitors, to ensure the best results at the lowest costs when compared to traditional toxic harmful chemicals.

AcuTrade places the absolute highest emphasis on ethical business, service delivery, client service, continued staff training and problem solving to all our clients.

AcuTrade currently has offices, factory and warehousing in Port Elizabeth and look to extend their footprint into more areas.

AcuTrade Products are manufactured with the intent of it being the best product at the best price without it causing harm or damage to people or the environment.


AcuTrade has also secured yet another product into our extensive range, Organic Fresh Sanitizer. This product has passed all the toxicology tests for skin irritation, eyes, digestion as well as inhalation, which is also safe for tunnel sanitisation. It has also had laboratory tests done against Corona Virus and has shown a 72hr inhibition of the Virus, preventing cross contamination and cell replication.

We also have a fully organic non-toxic hand sanitiser called Organisan H (Alcohol Free Hand Sanitiser) perfectly suited to use as a kids hand sanitiser.

We thank you for affording us the opportunity to introduce AcuTrade to you and look forward to demonstrating to your facility and business why we are the leaders in our industry, and being of continued assistance to you going forward.
