Mr GNC du Randt and his wife, Mrs MJ du Randt established the first company in 1960, which later evolved to become the Du Randt Group Holdings.
From humble beginnings as a transport company equipped with only a small selection of trucks and a single bulldozer, the emerging company soon expanded and began purchasing a variety of equipment. As the transport company grew from strength to strength, the du Randt family seized the opportunity to expand into the earthmoving industry. In 1971, West Rand Plant Hire was born.
The three du Randt sons – Mr. WAC du Randt, Mr GNC du Randt Jnr and Mr BJ du Randt then joined the family business, playing an integral role in establishing West Rand Plant Hire as a leading contractor of choice for plant hire, general construction and bulk earthworks.
The du Randt brothers further expanded their reach in 2007 with the launch of Dura Equipment Sales, now a leading provider of used earthmoving equipment.
Through the years they learned that with supplying good refurbished and new machinery to the African market, there is a great demand for quality refurbished parts and components. Again, the du Randt brothers saw an opportunity in the market and started Dura Parts who now supply quality approved parts on the African continent and beyond its borders.
