Our History


Our company was founded in 1995 by Richard Everingham and Leon Bothma.


Richard and Leon worked together at a construction and forestry equipment manufacturer in Richards Bay, South Africa, where Richard and Leon headed up the Research and Development Engineering and Prototype Manufacturing functions respectively.

After a few years it became clear that something special could be created by leveraging the combination of Richard’s machine design talent and Leon’s mastery of machine tools and manufacturing processes.


So ETT was founded in 1995 as a small specialist engineering workshop in the back streets of the Richards Bay industrial area. Initially equipped with a rented workshop, a few old machine tools and one old drawing board, the duo were completely committed to the mission ahead.


ETT soon became the "go to" engineering shop for industries in the area when they needed complex engineering problems solved through innovative engineering and rapid manufacturing turnaround times.

ETT were well supported by Bell Equipment Company early on, developing a series of support products including water trucks, fuel trucks and mine service trucks to complement Bell’s range of articulated dump trucks. The ETT product range expanded into innovative products such as the Versalift Loader for Bell’s tri-wheeler machine, and other special equipment built on Bell platforms .


The next major milestone was the opportunity offered to ETT to develop a range of Aluminium Industry Support Vehicles for a major global aluminium producer. This program was executed with ETT’s now trademark speed and innovation, and has become one of ETT’s most successful product ranges.

ETT’s reputation for high quality products grew steadily, which drew the attention of the regional Caterpillar and Komatsu dealers. The opportunity to work with these global leading brands was seized with absolute commitment.

This phase heralded ETT’s entry into the high end market of specialised mining support equipment. The following few years saw expansion of the ETT product range to large mining lowbed trailers and large rigid water trucks.


Other dealers of premium equipment such as Volvo soon became regular clients. The association with theses leading brands has led to ETT’s current global product footprint in over 20 countries.


At ETT we will always be mindful of the massive opportunity offered to us by these large manufacturers and dealers. These large organizations placed their faith in us being able to do our part in supporting their quest to meet their customer’s expectations.


This trust has been hard earned, and that is why we, ETT, will always put customer satisfaction before profit!
