Bendet was established in 2011 by Bernd Meyer. Bernd Meyer had just returned to Piet Retief from a two year work experience in the United States of America. With the money that he had saved during this time and mentorship from his father and best friend Dieter Meyer, he bought an old Bell tractor tipper combination. Initially, he drove the vehicle himself, on a mine for Jindal Africa. And that is how this Construction Plant Hire Company was born.

Since 2011, the company has grown exponentially to one of the leading construction plant hire companies. Many vehicles, including excavators, tipper trucks, rollers, TLBs, rollbacks, lowbeds and water carts were added to the fleet. Today, Bendet is a top construction plant hire company in Piet Retief, South Africa, and the surrounding areas.

Branching off the plant hire service, the Bendet construction plant hire company also provides construction, earthmoving and forestry services, serving clients in the agricultural, construction and civil industries.

Most recently, Bendet bought out Roga’s Breakdown, and thus added towing and breakdown services to its list of offerings. With two 12 ton rollbacks, one 8 ton rollback and a 40 ton lowbed in the inventory, you no longer need to fear breakdowns – Bendet has you covered!

According to Wikipedia, “Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) is a racially selective programme launched by the South African government to redress the inequalities of Apartheid by giving black (African, Coloureds, Indians and Chinese) South African citizens economic privileges that are not available to Whites. It is a form of Affirmative action.”

Preventative maintenance involves constantly assessing our vehicles and performing maintenance work to reduce the likelihood of them failing or breaking down, rather than waiting for the vehicle to break before working on it.
