About Us

This is our story

Having met in 2008 at Wits University. A rough around the edges kid from Johannesburg South and an eccentricly energetic guy from Germiston. Both hopeful engineers with dreams of grandeur.

An unlikely friendship formed through long days and late nights at the local 24hr library. Proximity grew into an unshakeable bond based on similar morals and stoic beliefs.

Christopher de Wet and Werner Pieters.

South African Roots

Neither of us wanted to leave this beautiful country. Instead we remain dedicated to being part of the generation that will see South Africa grow.

Upon completion of our studies both of us ended up working at the same company, design and project management formed part of our daily lives. The long hours shared continued was the tinder that ignited the start of something new.

This was the foundation of Columbus Engineering and the common thread that is woven throughout our vision – quickly becoming recognised for our innovation and our tenacity with a solid reputation of exceptional delivery.

A new style of Engineering.

Our Philosophy

We build trust and long lasting relationships by delivering on time, adhering to the highest safety standards, staying within budget and never deviating from this.
