Who we are

VBKOM is not your typical engineering consultancy. In fact we don’t like to think of ourselves as traditional consultants at all. Rather, we see ourselves as our clients’ strategic partners – dedicated to helping you achieve success while empowering your business to have a positive impact on people’s lives.

This meaningful, long-term relationship begins, first and foremost, with understanding your unique needs and then providing high-quality, custom-fit solutions. As such, we provide a wide range of specialist services, centred on your business goals and dreams. Our service focus is multidisciplinary engineering and project management consulting to mining and capital-intensive industries. 

The journey towards those goals is where your organisation will find meaning and purpose with us as our leadership and expertise guides you towards the best strategic business decisions.

We have been teaming up with our clients and driving their success for more than a decade – just imagine what embarking on a journey with us could lead to.


How we started

VBKOM was founded in 2008 by five mining engineers with a dream to make success a reality for mining businesses across the African continent. This would be achieved by establishing a highly skilled consultancy firm, positioned to deliver expert technical mining consulting services to pan-African and international clients.

Today, what distinguishes VBKOM from any other consultancy is how our expertise is delivered to clients. By travelling the road towards the client’s business goals together, every step of the way, VBKOM helps businesses both identify and seize opportunities.

Our early-stage success and growth unlocked various opportunities which enabled the company to enhance its initial mining engineering service offering. The strategic addition of key complementary services allowed the company to expand further and improve its client support throughout their entire value-chain.

In 2015 VBKOM opened its second office in Kathu in the Northern Cape Province, South Africa, to provide operational support to our broad client base in the area. We are constantly driven to raise the bar on service delivery, and being fully accessible to our clients is key.

Our shareholders are extremely proud of our ability to grow businesses through close client collaboration, and will continue to invest heavily to take the company to the next level. We remain committed to seeking out and identifying opportunities to expand our service offering and geographical footprint and in so doing, offer true value to clients in the mining and other capital-intensive industries.
