“Our mission is to support our clients’ success by delivering highly professional plant integrity services and solutions for the Industry, Marine & Offshore, and Construction business worldwide.”
We also pride ourselves in doing things the KAEFER way. It’s what makes us Recognised, Efficient and Different (RED) and is seen clearly in our consistent safety record, cutting-edge technical expertise and strong ethical values that guide us in everything we do. Furthermore, we’re driven by innovation and by doing things differently. We develop new and tailored solutions that benefit our clients and are frontrunners in digitalisation in our industry. We also assure quality, safety, cost-efficiency and continuous improvement with our substantial in-house expertise and fully integrated services.
We have the pleasure to work with and contribute to the success of projects and maintenance contracts for clients such as SAPREF and Richard’s Bay Coal Terminal (RBCT) in the KZN region as well as Eskom power stations in Mpumalanga and Limpopo, namely Tutuka, Majuba & Matimba and Medupi power station amongst others.
“Increasing our competitive strength by being recognised, more efficient and different.”
As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we have completed several community projects in the KZN, Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces where we operate. We strongly believe that sustainable empowerment is achieved through education; children are the leaders of tomorrow. With this focus on impacting South Africa’s future through education, KAEFER has, among other community projects:
- Partnered with SAPREF by contributing towards a project that saw the building of two science labs at the Ogwini and Menzi High schools in Umlazi. The project, owned and driven by SAPREF, involved converting a classroom at both schools into a fully equipped science laboratory complete with workbenches, cupboards, Bunsen burners, science kits and chemicals. Other teaching aids were also donated to the schools.
- Given Phegelelo High School in Lephalale a much needed facelift to their facilities including classroom blocks, toilets and sports grounds.
At KAEFER, we rely on our long history and business continuity which gives us stability and orientation. Our successful track record speaks for itself. And it also serves as a testament to the strength of our strategy, and our vision – to eliminate the energy waste.
