R&H was established as Robertson and Hitchins Consulting Engineers in 1950, and has since migrated through various acquisitions, allowing R&H Rail to become a significant force in maintaining and supporting railways on behalf of the public, mining and industrial sectors with our wide spectrum of expertise.
In 2004 R&H Rail became part of the international DAR Group of Companies. With subsidiary companies such as TY-Lin, Currie and Brown, Penspen, Perkins & Will and GPO forming part of their portfolio, the Group ranks second globally among Building Consultants and fifth in the Transportation Division. The Group further ranks number one amongst Consultants in Africa. (ENR – July 2019)
With R&H’s head office in Johannesburg, and supporting offices in eMalahleni (Witbank), Umhlathuze (Richards Bay) and Kathu, we are at the forefront of rail activities in Africa.
