Ground Breakers was established by two entrepreneurs passionate about business through innovation within the construction and quarry industry.

"The combination of skills of JC Janse van Vuuren who comes from a plant hire and transport background and Johan Meintjes who comes from a quarrying background offers the ultimate mix of skill sets required to run Ground Breakers. Both have equipment experience, Meintjies' knowledge of materials processing and Janse van Vuuren's understanding of the value of effectively operating machines at the mine and on client's sites are key ingredients in the success and standard Ground Breakers holds itself to." - Quarrying South Africa

Ground Breakers started on a quarry in Lanseria and still continues to produce aggregates there. The company has recently acquired a mine in Nietgedacht and has grown the business from strength to strength.

The Ground Breakers Group now boasts with a large fleet of delivery vehicles and a portfolio of plant and equipment large enough to service bulk orders for clients.
