our Story

Nejeni was founded in 2000 and established its humble beginnings in their Head Office comprising a small building rented from an associate Civil Contractor. As the contracts and projects grew in size and complexity, so too did the need to find alternative more appropriate premises large enough to accommodate the ever-expanding infrastructure of the company. All current operations are run from the new premises acquired in Heath Circle where plant (machinery and equipment), materials and staff are adequately housed. It has taken bold decisions, creative thinking, recognising and adapting to an ever-changing environment, commitment to service excellence, deliverance of a quality end product, staff investment, sound business processes accredited through ISO 9001 and nothing short of hard work to raise the bar for achievement.

Nejeni has emerged into the Civil Engineering playing field as a dynamic, reliable, innovative and quality focused company. Through the alignment with key role-players in the Civil environment, we have strategically gained knowledge and experience coupled with a raw desire at striving to deliver only best. At the core of Nejeni is the compassion it holds for the staff at all levels within the organisation, who ultimately are responsible for service excellence and product delivery. Empowering staff and equipping them appropriately through on-going relevant training form the basis of the recognition afforded to each and every individual. Annual personnel assessments of effectiveness with all associated corrective measures underpin our commitment to ensuring the backbone of our success remains at the forefront of our drive to continue to deliver on a motto of “ensuring a better South Africa through the provision of quality workmanship”.

“Ons inwoners in La Provenceweg wil u graag bedank vir die professionele wyse waarin die werk gedoen word. Almal het hul bes gedoen om ons nie te verontrief nie, niemand het gelyk of hy/sy lyf wegsteek nie, die werk is deurentyd netjies afgehandel, dit blyk dat die regte toerusting gebruik is en die werkers het deurentyd netjies voorgekom. Ons is veral beïndruk met die terreinvoorman, wat sy span uitstekend beheer het en nie geskroom het om self handearbeid te verrig nie.”
