Welcome to Strauss Groep

Meet The Family

Strauss Groep (Strauss Group) is a group of companies serving Upington and its surroundings. The roots of the group can be traced back to 1966 when it was founded by Johannes Cornelis Strauss. The name “Strauss Grondverskuiwers” (Strauss Earthmoving) was adopted and later renamed to “Strauss Siviel” (Strauss Civil). Over the past 50+ years this one-man enterprise has developed and recently grown into a group of companies (Poort Beton, Strauss Meganies, Strauss Plant Hire and IT5 Siviel). They are currently directed and managed by the second generation.

The Group has a track record of industry excellence, puts a high premium on sustainable and responsible development and has created, by means of modern office buildings and an extensive human resources department, a pleasant working environment.
