Our History

Our company was founded in 1995 by Richard Everingham and Leon Bothma.

Richard and Leon worked together at a construction and forestry equipment manufacturer in Richards Bay, South Africa, where Richard and Leon headed up the Research and Development Engineering and Prototype Manufacturing functions respectively.

After a few years it became clear that something special could be created by leveraging the combination of Richard’s industry knowledge and machine design abilities and Leon’s mastery of specialized manufacturing processes.

So ETT was founded in 1995 as a specialist engineering company based in Richards Bay, South Africa with a leadership team completely committed to the mission ahead.

ETT soon became the “go to” engineering company for regional mining and construction original equipment distributors and dealers when they needed professionally engineered special vehicle solutions and rapid manufacturing turnaround times.

ETT’s reputation for innovation and high quality products grew steadily, which drew the attention of the African Caterpillar and Komatsu representatives. The opportunity to work with these leading global brands was seized with absolute commitment.

A program to develop of a range of aluminium smelter support vehicles , and metal mill slag pot carriers utilising articulated dump truck power heads proved to be an extremely successful program for ETT. This range of equipment continues to be a key product range for ETT.

The following few years saw expansion of the ETT product range to larger rigid water trucks, service trucks and large mining lowbed trailers.

Other dealers of premium equipment such as Volvo soon became regular clients. The association with these leading brands has led to ETT’s global product footprint in over 20 countries.

At ETT we will always be mindful of the massive opportunity offered to us by these large manufacturers and dealers and leading mining companies that have placed their faith in us being able to do our part in supporting their quest to meet their customer’s expectations.

This trust has been hard earned, and that is why we, ETT, will always put customer satisfaction before profit!
