What Our Clients Say About Us

MK Designs (Pty) Ltd

We were on the lookout for a supplier to join us on a project we were doing with Anglo American. Due to the timeline and sheer size of the project, we needed someone reliable, and who could meet and exceed expectations. Viva was referred to us through one of our other clients, DRA, and we were pleasantly surprised. We have had an incredibly positive experience and have truly enjoyed working with the team. It’s easy to make a company appear good, but what we have found is that it’s the people that propel a business to being great. Viva is… Read more “MK Designs (Pty) Ltd”

NEPEAN Conveyors

As a long-standing business partner of ours, we often work with Viva for manufacturing on selected projects or turn to them when our own workshops are at capacity. Every time we work with them, we are more than satisfied and our expectations are always met. Viva has assisted us greatly and has had a positive impact on our business when it comes to them taking on additional work when we are unable to. They are always on time with their delivery, and they come highly recommended as a company. Jacques… Read more “NEPEAN Conveyors”

Jacques Steyn
Sales Manager

DRA Global

Having worked with Viva on a similar project before and having had such a positive experience, working with them again was a no-brainer. We wanted to get as many of the old team members from the previous project to work on this one with the DRA team, and Viva was one of them. We knew their work ethic, and we knew they would deliver. One of the things that stood out about Viva was the technology they used to reduce the fabrication lead times and technical issues on-site during site erection. There is no doubt that we would continue to… Read more “DRA Global”

FLSmidth Inc

Over the course of the last decade, I’ve been working with Viva Engineering. We engaged in the design detailing, fabrication, fabrication sub-contractor management, and site construction with Viva Engineering for a Bulk Materials handling project for a Uranium mine. They did a stellar job of adhering to the stringent fabrication, quality and especially corrosion protection requirements of the roughly 3000 tons of steelwork and associated supply. Viva really added value in partnering through the changes that happen during such projects and ensuring that those are handled commercially, contractually, and professionally. Through all projects over the decade, I continued to see… Read more “FLSmidth Inc”

Kanawha Scales & Systems, Inc.

Kanawha Scales & Systems has done business with Viva Engineering for nearly a decade, which includes projects ranging from USD$10,000 to >USD$1,000,000. In each instance, we’ve had prompt and professional results beginning with the tendering phase and all the way through to project execution. The need for a reliable vendor and partner while managing critical project components when several time zones are away is absolutely critical. Reliability is something that Viva has commonly shown through our projects. Besides work in South Africa, KSS has a global footprint and we have found that Viva Engineering meets or exceeds the required quality… Read more “Kanawha Scales & Systems, Inc.”

Larry Wigal
Director of Technical Services


We have been working with Viva Engineering since 2008 and our projects have always been a success story for both parties, we have completed large and medium cross-border and South African projects together with very little quality and delivery problems, with only success and satisfied clients. We are proud to state we have had no defects recorded once taking over has been done with all projects done to date. We always position our tenders/projects as a Viva and Amtec team to the client, the feedback has always been positive and successful. We will be working with Viva on all Structural… Read more “Amtec”

Quadpro Power Solutions

Viva Engineering came recommended by someone in our industry. The service received from the start was really great. Our first order was delivered on time and the quality of work met all our requirements. We then engaged Viva for steelwork for a complete substation. We were regularly kept up to date with the progress and were even notified that there seemed to be a mistake on one of our drawings. Viva assisted in correcting this mistake at no additional cost to us. We were also invited to witness the galvanizing process, again showing that Viva Engineering goes beyond other manufacturers… Read more “Quadpro Power Solutions”

FLSmidth – Plant Systems

FlSmidth’s experience in dealing with Viva Engineering as their steel fabricator for their ug projects as well as their highly competitive fabrication pricing made them the obvious choice during the adjudication in a tender for a dome steel structure for a stockpile cover for one of our clients. We knew we had to partner with a fabricator that will provide something more than the average steel fabricator. We needed someone that understood the complexities of the structure that would have to be designed and fabricated keeping in mind that the structure would have been erected safely in an operational production… Read more “FLSmidth – Plant Systems”

Drew Architects

I was aware of Viva Engineering; I know the owner is a detail and quality-orientated individual so wanted to give them an opportunity. All Viva staff we met were friendly, quick to respond, positive, and solution orientated. After explaining the nature of our architectural project, the Viva team fabricated the entire steel frame in a matter of weeks. We were very impressed with how quickly they were able to deliver. The steel arrived on site on time and on inspection was fabricated to a very high standard. After a few initial teething issues, the erection found its rhythm and came… Read more “Drew Architects”
