About Us

Hennie Rall started Henra in 1990 with only a shovel, pick, wheelbarrow, 2 labourers and a very weary looking Toyota bakkie. Since then Henra has grown to become a well-known, respected and reputable Civil Engineering Construction company. The success of Henra has been built on the foundation of consistently delivering projects to the highest standard of quality and professionalism.

The building of trust and respect with our clients added to our success and we have a proven track record of successfully delivering projects on time. Our extensive list of owned plant provides cost and scheduling efficiencies on each project undertaken. Our clients include Private Developers, Local Authorities and Government Departments. We specialise in Civil Engineering Construction and provide a wide range of civil construction work.

Collectively Henra is known as the Henra Group. The group consists of Entsha Henra (Pty) Ltd, Henra Plant Hire (Pty) Ltd and Henra Civil Contractors (Pty) Ltd. Enstha Henra is the main operating company, while Henra Plant Hire is focused on the rental of construction equipment.

Enstha Henra accepts the responsibility and obligation to run its business in a way that ultimately benefits not only the immediate community, but society as a whole. We believe that to effectively benefit society, one must look further than just financial aids, but also consider the environment and the impact of each of our projects.

Since the inception of the company in 1990, it has actively worked with various stakeholders to ensure that the resources to its disposal are distributed in a fair and responsible manner. Even though the development plans started out small and straight forward, Henra has been privileged enough to be in a position where it can make positive contributions to various communities in need.

The Pinelands Créche in Kranshoek near Plettenberg Bay

Period of project: 24 Months

April 2017 – March 2018

April 2018 – March 2019

An area of concern at the créche identified was the salaries of facilitators employed. This was then decided to be the main purpose of the funding.

The Seven Passes Initiative in Touwsranten and the rural Hoekwil area

Period of project: 24 Months

April 2017 – March 2018

April 2018 – March 2019

The salaries of adult facilitators in the After-School Life Skills and Education Programme of The Seven Passes Initiative were identified as an area where Henra could make a positive contribution. It was then decided that this would be the main purpose of the funding.

Using these three categories as our guideline, Entsha Henra’s ultimate goal is to ensure it plays its’ part in helping South Africa fully utilize its’ potential to become a modern African country that’s open to all.
