South Africa’s leading black-owned engineering consulting firm, GIBB has for the third time since 2012, been named South Africa’s Number One firm in the Engineering Consulting sector, according to the Top500: South Africa’s Best Managed Companies publication.
Top500 aims to identify the top five firms across 100 business sectors monitored by the Topco Research Department. Candidates need to excel in three key spheres i.e: financial performance, people, and policy (or accreditation).
The 2016 edition of Top500: definitive guide to South Africa’s most successful businesses saw a rigorous process of adjudication, with over 4000 firms being surveyed.
The financial performance sphere is however regarded as most important when defining South Africa’s best firms.
The criteria within financial performance speak to the ideas of top firms being large, growing, profitable and productive institutions that are leaders by virtue of their size and dynamism.
With an impressive track record of excellence spanning more than 59 years across various sectors, GIBB continues to chart its own course as a leading multi-disciplinary engineering consulting firm with proven expertise and a strong, skilled talent pool.
“In a rapidly changing and competitive engineering environment, the ability to increase business value through a unique and differentiated business approach remains a critical success driver for GIBB. Being recognised for our commitment in offering sustainable solutions is testament that we are paving the way towards an intelligent and streamlined business future”, explains GIBB CEO Richard Vries
GIBB’s revolutionary engineering intelligence and the firm’s commitment to delivering quality and excellence has been recognised for a number of years. This is evident in the number of awards that it has won since 1990.
Over the years, the firm has remained appreciative of the potential offered by the African continent. In response, GIBB has developed an in-depth understanding of the challenges of developing infrastructure in Africa. This has contributed to the firm’s position as the partner of choice for the private sector, state owned enterprises (SOEs) and governments who seek knowledgeable people, with proven experience and the expertise to respond to the numerous infrastructure demands and needs of the continent.
