A record of engineering innovation and success


For nearly 50 years, our drive to create new value for customers by enhancing the speed and efficiency of their installation and/or relocation projects is what has made Vanguard the market leader in heavy lifting, machine moving and plant relocation.

We’ve worked across borders and across industries with some of the heaviest industrial loads ever moved in Africa, with extensive global expertise in virtually every type of heavy lifting, plant installation, machine moving and specialised transport environment.

Each and every project we’ve done has been customised according to our clients’ exact process requirements to ensure maximum efficiency and lowest overall cost of total ownership.

Vanguard is a private, proudly-South African company, with a deep commitment to skills development and support of our people.
