Business Responsibility

Hillary Construction (Pty) Limited has been extremely pro-active in developing entrepreneurs in the civil engineering field. The three main aspects are:

  • In 1995 Hillary Construction identified the need for a road-surfacing provider in the province. Polokwane Surfacing (Pty) Limited was born and the majority shareholding was taken up by black employees from Hillary.
  • Later Tswelopele Roads and Earthworks (Pty) Limited was formed, again with Hillary staff taking up the shares. This is a 96% black owned company.
  • In 1994 Ya Rena Civils was restructured where Hillary took up a 30% shareholding.
  • Black staff members with particular skills were identified and mentored to become independent contractors. With this mentoring, administrative assistance, and financial support from Hillary Construction, these contractors are currently running very successful businesses and offer their services to the industry at large. These profitable firms have not only created wealth for the various entrepreneurs but have also helped uplift their families and promote a feeling of self-worth.
