Franki Africa (Pty) Ltd. celebrated its sixtieth year of operating in South Africa in November 2006, making it the oldest geotechnical contracting company in the Southern African region. Franki Africa was originally founded as a branch of Frankipile, a large, Belgium-based, well-renowned, international geotechnical company, which itself was established in 1909. Whilst the ownership of Frankipile changed over the years, the South African operation maintained its steady performance and, in doing so, enhanced and consolidated its reputation as the leader in its field in Southern Africa.
