Raubicon has been trading as an electrical engineering consultancy since 1998, and in its present form since 2000. The managing partners, Herman van Heerden and Org Nieuwoudt have a common background as students and SA Navy engineers going back more than 30 years.
In the three decades the partners followed engineering careers in the South African industry in disciplines which have formed the experience base and know-how input to the business activities of Raubicon.
Since 2006 Raubicon has had a very successful and rewarding partner in Chris (T. C.) Luvhani who holds a major share of the company in his personal capacity.
Raubicon has an established presence in its client base, and takes pride in the projects executed under our management. Some 400 projects across all the industry sectors have been completed during the past decade. The diversity and challenges associated with these projects have allowed our company to enjoy a stimulating and innovative culture.
