2 October 2013 – Concor Engineering and Wade Walker, both wholly owned Murray & Roberts subsidiary companies operating with the group’s Engineering Africa Platform (EAP), are poised for growth in sub-Saharan Africa.
Wade Walker is an integrated electrical, instrumentation and control solutions company with a focus on the mining and minerals and power generation sectors, while Concor Engineering offers integrated structural, mechanical, platework and piping solutions to the mining and minerals sector. Both companies are housed in same building in the Murray & Roberts group precinct in Skeen Boulevard, Bedfordview.
Concor Engineering managing director, Milé Sofijanic says, “Having one managing director doesn’t mean either of these companies is losing their identity. Based on the current and predicted market climate in sub-Saharan Africa, my view is that there is great opportunity for growth. To an increasing degree, customers in this region are requesting combined mechanical, electrical and instrumentation services under the banner of SMEIP (structural steelwork, mechanical installation, electrical, instrumentation and piping), as well as EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) services.
Sofijanic adds that this process is a reflection of a greater transformation within the Group that is seeing all Murray & Roberts companies begin to move towards increasing integration of their services in order to be able to provide joint services wherever it is practical to do so.
