Our History

We first ventured into Africa in 2006 on an agricultural expansion project in Zambia. The success of that project saw doors of opportunity opening in other business sectors and countries, consolidating our position as a leading construction and plant hire company.

Teichmann is a dynamic and motivated company led by an innovative and hands-on management team and supported by a complement of over 1000 people. Together we believe that nothing is impossible thanks to our practical approach to projects, our flexibility to meet our clients’ needs as well as our pioneering spirit.

We use local employees where possible to develop the skills of the local workforce. When the necessary skills are not available, qualified expatriate employees transfer these skills and assist in the training and development of the local workforce.

Likewise, when sourcing services and supplies, African companies who meet the criteria in respect of quality, price and service levels are given preference to create further employment opportunities on the continent.

Through perseverance and hard work, we have an ever increasing footprint and are continually looking at opportunities. We are well positioned and driven to expand into new territories to meet the needs of Africa.
