Sylco Plant Hire Cape Town

Sylco was established in 1999 and operates mostly in the Western Cape region of South Africa and is considered one of the leaders in its industry. Reasons for our success include great customer relations, continuous training of our employees, own workshop facilities, competitive pricing, a 50 000 m² outdoor test and training facility for our plant and diversification of our services.

What started out as a small sideline business with about five units of plant has grown today into a large company with a variety of plant for hire, trucks available to transport aggregates, containers etc. and used plant and trucks for sale.

We started hiring out plant to the agricultural, construction and civil industries and expanded the business into the transporting of aggregates, hiring out containers, – access equipment, and – mobile cranes. During May 2011 we further diversified when we opened our used sales division for plant and trucks.

New containers have been purchased for the establishment of a container-based self storage facility and offers closed storage units as well as secure covered parking facilities for vehicles, boats, caravans and trailers.

The company’s success is built on a tried and tested philosophy which is to: “deliver consistent service and charge market related prices to our customers and last but not least to be the best and not the biggest company in our industry.


Sylco has been a long standing member of the Contractors Plant Hire Association and the Cape Chamber of Commerce and we continuously support the local communities as part of our social responsibility program.
