Knight Piésold Celebrates 95 Years of Excellence

June 27, 2016 – This year marks Knight Piésold’s 95th anniversary since being established in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1921 as a specialist in water resources, hydropower, natural draught cooling towers, and thermal power stations.

Knight Piésold has grown from a one-person engineering consultancy into a global network of companies in Africa, Australia, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. More than 750 engineers, environmental scientists, geoscientists, and technologists based in 29 offices worldwide are active in the development of the mining, power, water resources, infrastructure, and oil and gas industries.

Throughout the decades, Knight Piésold has continuously evolved through service and operation expansions to adapt to changing market conditions, yet, at the same time, we have remained true and constant in our core values. Our employees embody these underlying principles—with particular emphasis in technical excellence and client focus—that are demonstrated in each project we complete. We work together with clients to understand project and business requirements in today’s global environment in order to design solutions tailored specifically for each project—and ultimately to deliver sustainable, bottom-line results. Our client-focused approach has resulted in award-winning projects and long-standing client relationships that still hold strong today.

“We are proud of what we have achieved and where we are, and are also very excited about where we are going,” says André Niewenhuizen, Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of the Knight Piésold Group.

We thank our clients and employees, past and present, for achieving this milestone with us, and look forward to a bright journey ahead.
