Knight Piésold was founded by Dr. F.E. Kanthack in 1921 as a sole consulting engineering practice. This practice in South Africa began our progress toward the vibrant, continually evolving company we are today. We now operate from 29 offices in 16 countries across five core industries: mining, power, water resources, infrastructure, and oil and gas.
Through organic growth for over 100 years, we have expanded our geographic reach, increased to a 1,000-strong team, and formed a multidisciplinary approach to support full-cycle project development for our clients around the world.
We have stayed true to our roots and are proud of our stability and longevity.
