Leading SA based construction company, Enza Construction (Pty) Ltd recently completed the purchase of Tractionel Enterprise, one of the leading electrical construction companies in SA.

Established in November 1982, Tractionel Enterprise specialises in Electrical Infrastructure Projects, with a focus on both railway and power solutions. Tractionel has been involved in railway electrification projects for close to four decades and is the only local South African company to hold this pedigree. Since its inception, the company has been commissioned to manage and complete a number of key projects, including the electrification of the Gautrain Rapid Rail Link for Bombela in 2010.

The acquisition of Tractionel Enterprise fits into Enza Construction’s strategy to become “The infrastructure developer of choice”

In 2014, Enza Construction made a strategic decision to shift its focus from being a construction service provider to being a provider of infrastructure solutions. The business recognised that the rehabilitation of rail infrastructure, as well as the provision of new rail infrastructure, would be a major growth sector and the acquisition of Tractionel assists Enza Construction in being able to package and provide infrastructure solutions in that space.

By purchasing Tractionel Enterprise, Enza Construction has diversified and enhanced its overall product offering to the market which adds to and compliments the Company’s existing capabilities within the built environment.

“The Tractionel transaction allows Enza Construction to play a larger role in the rollout of renewable power solutions. This is aligned to the Government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPP)”, says Chief Executive Officer of Enza Construction, Mr Rowan Crowie.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Crowie Holdings, Enza Construction was established in the early 2000’s by brothers, Rowan and Clinton Crowie.

For over 2 decades, Enza Construction has been a key player in the industry, driven by its commitment to unwavering quality and integrity, making it one of the leading, construction companies providing civils, housing, turnkey design and construction solutions in South Africa. Enza Construction is 100% Black owned and controlled, and is a Level 1 BBBEE Contributor.
