Our History

The company was established in 1999 under the direction of Hein Stoltz. D & S has grown in leaps and bounds and along the way managed to acquire an enviable reputation as one of the most efficient and professional Rigging companies in the Richards Bay / Empangeni region.

In late 2009 D&S finished an Engineering workshop on the premises to diversify into other areas of expertise that support the rigging. Today we bring 40 years of onsite work experience to the table with a knowledge base built on more than 300 companies as our customer base.
