FFA Group to Kishugu®

Home » About Us » Our History
In 2003, prior to the establishment of the FFA Group, the Forest Fire Association – FFA Section 21 Company (established in 1991), which was an association of various commercial forestry interests, was awarded the first Working on Fire (WoF) tender, WP8282.

During the span of the contract, two independent companies provided their unique range of services to the Forest Fire Association Section 21 Company. Forest Air provided aerial firefighting services and EnviroNet Solutions provided ground-based integrated fire management.

The growth of the WoF Programme led the company’s auditors to recommend the formation of a group of companies, the FFA Group, to implement the Working on Fire Programme in the future. As a result, Forest Air and EnviroNet Solutions amalgamated into the newly formed group.

A company structure was formed comprising of FFA Holdings (Pty) Ltd as a holding company that legally owns all the shares in the companies that make up the FFA Group. Each of these companies was formed to fulfill a specific function within the FFA Group.


We aim to grow this business even further, beyond the horizon, for the greater good® of the world at large.
