Giuricich Bros (Pty) Ltd was formed in 1940 by Nicolo’, Cesare and Claudia Giuricich. Nicolo’, together with his father Matteo and brother Cesare emigrated to South Africa in 1935/6. After a period of acclimatisation and technical studies, working as craftsmen, foremen and sub-contractors, they formalised their partnership and commenced with the establishment of a construction company that developed to the forefront of all fields of building and civil contracting, property development and project management.
Giuricich Bros Construction (Pty) Ltd is one of the largest privately owned companies in the industry. The company is managed by the board of directors, which consists of the six brothers as shareholders, namely Edward, Adrian, Julian, Gerard, Nicky and Leonard, Annie Sheik (Excutive Directors), Martin Maluleke (elected Phakamisa Gb Trust representative). The non-executive directors are Osman Arbee (Financial Director) and Ukhamba Holdings representitive Veli Mokoena (Chairman of the Board).
The company’s ethos is ‘quality above all else’ and we take pride in all our dealings, whether with employees, clients or suppliers. As a result, our highly trained staff are respected by clients and consultants alike.
The aim of the company is to always work with clients towards bringing value added products to the project, and to achieve completion of a quality project within the required budget. Consultants in the industry are aware of the skills brought to a project, and this assists them in making a decision when they award contracts.
The company concentrates on forging strong, healthy, mutually beneficial relationships with its suppliers, minimising the effects of shortages as far as possible. When Ukhamba Holdings acquired 20% of Giuricich Bros Construction in 2004, it was a significant milestone in the company’s history, working with partners who have formed an intergral part of our structure. They have assisted us with regards to our BEE profile and are always eager to exchange ideas, and work together towards uplifting and empowering our employees.
A trust was formed for the benefit of the PDI employees of Giuricich Bros Construction whereby 6% of the shares were donated to the Phakamisa Gb Trust by the existing shareholders. The company’s employee shareholders are at the heart of its vision for the future, enabling the company to improve on the solid base it have set over the past seven decades, and grow towards achieving even higher goals in the future.
