Our story begins in 1932 where a small office in Cape Town, South Africa, became the catalyst for a nearly one-hundred-year journey.
It’s a road that’s taken us into 33 African countries, the Middle East, Asia and Australia. Our belief in shared value has seen us merge with multiple companies since the early 2000s.
You might remember some of our previous names – Africon, Ninham Shand and Netgroup. Following a merger with Australasian firm Connell Wagner in 2009, we operated for 10 years as Aurecon. Merging with a global business allowed us to embrace a global perspective and significantly increased our participation in world-renowned projects.
But we’ve always put Africa first. We changed our name but not our allegiance to the continent. And we’ve learnt that what works globally isn’t always an authentic African solution. It’s what prompted us to demerge from Aurecon Group in October 2019 and return to what has always been our vision and passion – creating a company that offers a uniquely African perspective. We call it Zutari.
