DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER
Nico Heyns and Helenus Scholtz founded Portland Builders in 1988. Focussing mainly on the residential market, they established a solid business and continued this for the next 12 years.
At the turn of the century, Portland Builders acquired a 65 Hectare quarry with Malmesbury Horrfels deposits just beyond the beautiful Durbanville winelands. Soon after the acquisition, the quarry underwent a major facelift and new offices were built, a decent entrance road was scraped and new crushers were also installed.
In 2001, Portland Group yet again expanded their business by installing three readymix concrete plants on the site and acquiring a fleet of readymix trucks to deliver the concrete.
In 2008 we further expanded our operations to the manufacture and installation of precast Hollow core slabs. We acquired state-of-the-art technology from Elematic in Finland to make sure we produce high quality slabs.
Hollowcore factory underwent a face lift and added 4 extra lanes among with new Weller technology from Germany. The stockyard was extended to the outside of the factory, more than doubling the capacity of production.
Portland has been doing business for the past 30 years and we are not only still going strong, but we are growing as well. Here's to the next 30!
Towards the end of 2019, the opportunity presented itself for Portland to become involved in two new quarries along with Tip Trans Resources. In November 2019, Portland Aggregates was established with two new quarries, namely Portland Weskus Quarry (in Jacobsbay) and Portland Worcester Quarry (in Rawsonville),
