Innovative Service, Quality and Reliability – RIGHT NOW
The name “Métier” is from the French, ultimately from Latin ministerium, “service, ministry or employment”. It means an occupation for which one is well suited or an area in which one excels.
The company has operations in the greater Durban and Gauteng regions. All operations have been designed to integrate with the environment with recycling facilities and dust control mechanisms as part of the design.

The company also operates new generation 36m Putzmiester Boom Pumps for placement of concrete by pumping.
