Eire Contractors is a Durban based company, established in 1988 by Mr. John Moffatt. The company began with three track rigs, all leased from Ingersol Rand, and rapidly expanded into the international company it is today, with its own impressive fleet of Lowbeds and explosive trucks.

The expansion has resulted in one of the largest plant holdings for hydraulics rigs throughout Southern Africa. Eire Contractors offers its clientele a wide range of expertise, being fully equipped to handle any requirement in their field, from large bulk works to more intricate jobs.

Eire Contractors boasts an impressive portfolio with several contracts awarded them in various countries, some of which include Sierra Leone, Zambia, Swaziland, Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique.

The Eire Contractors ethos prioritises quality, a value which reflects in their high referral rate. The company was the first of its kind to employ full time surveyors, a move which ensures that its clients enjoy the benefits of quality control and competent customer service.

Eire Contractors believes passionately in establishing lasting relationship, with the company’s customers and suppliers, and, just as importantly, with their employees.

Without the support of the many loyal individuals over the years, they would not be the successful company they are today and they would like to take this opportunity to thank every individual who has assisted in their development since their inception.
