This has proven a success on rapid build project such Gautrain and Gauteng Freeway Improvements Projects where haulage of materials in the region has seen unprecedented records due nature of these projects.

  • Over the past 10 years the company engaged in many projects related to Water and Sanitation Services, this was mainly driven by the demand of such services by government in the course to ensure that all South Africans gain access to basic services. A large number of these project were undertaken in rural and peri-urban communities where challenges such as skilled and organised labour are more prevalent due low employment rate that naturally renders most communities unskilled.
