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 side-line 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., used plant and trucks for sale as well as Skip Rental to dispose of your domestic or commercial waste.

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.

In March 2020 Sylco acquired Helderberg Skip Rentals in order to further diversify our company and complement our existing resources. We can offer you over 40 skips, ideal for all your waste management needs. Watch this space…

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.
