Conrad and Helen Geldenhuys of Protocor recently audited GVK SIYA ZAMA refurbishment and renovation of Valkenberg Hospital. Protocor are proud to be associated with GVK SIYA ZAMA Construction (Pty) Ltd.
GVK SIYA ZAMA state on their website as follows:
Founded in 1960 by Gordon Verhoef and Earl Krause – two friends barely out of high school who only had two bakkies, paint and a stepladder – Gordon Verhoef & Krause soon became one of South Africa’s leading specialists in painting and restoration. GVK-Siya Zama was born with the same entrepreneurial spirit.
As opposed to partnering with external entities for empowerment status, the founders bucked the trend at the time and invited employees from within the organisation to be part of an exciting new era. 21 Years later and GVK-Siya Zama is now one of the most successful and profitable privately-owned, empowered construction companies in South Africa, highly regarded and equally respected as a specialist in large scale construction and refurbishment.
With turnover approaching R2 billion per annum, the group continues to grow from strength to strength, whether it’s a R2.4 million upgrade of a hospital or the construction of a R500 million High Court; continuously striving for the high levels of professionalism and passion that its leadership team have come to demand.
Today, the group stands on the verge of yet another exciting new era. Combining the energy of an entrepreneurial spirit with the wisdom, strength and integrity of success, GVK-Siya Zama is poised to lead South Africa’s construction industry into a future of promise and prosperity.
It is an exciting time for a young adult company to be making its mark in South Africa today, a responsibility and a challenge that we take seriously. For this reason, it is important to stand by those principles that have brought us thus far and that will drive our business even further:
Most of all, our growth is vested.
“In it for the long haul.” Few words so powerfully describe the group’s commitment to its people, clients, the industry and the country. We believe this attitude makes a difference. It speaks of integrity, our desire to see things through to the end – and that’s what you need in construction.
Together with being approachable and reasonable, we pride ourselves on being a people-led organisation where, thanks to an open-door policy, our staff, clients, suppliers and sub-contractors all have access to management. That makes us transparent, accessible and ultimately: a very human construction company.
