The founders of the Group, Mr. G.N.C. du Randt (Snr) and his wife Mrs. M.J. du Randt started as a transport company in 1960.
West Rand Plant Hire was established in 1971 and the founders were later joined by their three sons, W.A.C. du Randt, G.N.C. du Randt (Jnr) and B.J. du Randt.
The company is still family-owned and the directors who are also shareholders in the company handle the day-to-day operations and decisions.
West Rand Plant Hire currently operates from three branches namely: East Rand, West Rand and North-West. However WRPH also has substantial ongoing projects in Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal.
WRPH has since 1986 been the principal reclamation and tailings-dam contractor for AngloGold in the East Rand. Most of the major construction and mining companies have had work completed by our group and we are proud to have built up a reputation of professionalism amongst our peers.
We have established ourselves as one of the leading plant hire companies in the country. Our experienced staff are well-equipped to assess proposed contracts and advise our clients on the most economical and time-efficient solution for the project.
Through the principles of quality work, environmental awareness and responsible practice, we have established long term partnerships with our customers, providing them with maximum production and minimum downtime.

Our people are our passion and therefore we are committed to align our goals with the national transformation agenda as far as possible. B-BBEE audits are done annually across all business units to track progress and to identify areas for improvement.
