Company descriptionSSI was founded in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1922. Registered as Stewart Scott (Pty) Ltd and trading as Stewart Scott International (SSI), the company owes its name to its far-sighted founding fathers – George Stewart, a specialist in water cycle and municipal services projects and Frederick Scott, whose forté was transport and structural design.
An innovator from its early years, SSI was one of the very first independent consulting engineering companies in Southern Africa and later, also one of the first to be established as an empowerment company.
The company's name changed to SSI, a DHV company, in September 2006 after the DHV Group became the majority shareholder.
SSI's strategy is focused on value creation, whether for the home or the international market. SSI's motto "Linking People, Promoting Growth" reflects the spirit and the way the company works. Strategic thrusts of focused growth, market diversification, differentiation and investment in its people support this goal. This approach maximises skills and services to meet market requirements and to satisfy stakeholders (clients, employees, shareholders and society in general) in all the countries in which SSI operates.
