With origins dating back to 1902 in the Western Cape, Concor (formerly Murray & Roberts Construction) has a long and proud heritage of more than 100 years.

Following its acquisition, effective 1 April 2017, by a consortium led by the Southern Palace Group (Southern Palace), which includes the Public Investment Corporation (PIC), Murray & Roberts Construction was renamed and rebranded as Concor.

Southern Palace is a wholly black-owned South African diversified industrial holding company with interests in numerous well-established businesses. Southern Palace is the new majority shareholder in Concor, followed by the Government Employees Pension Fund, represented by the PIC which now owns 25% of Concor. The acquisition signaled a historic moment in the company’s history. Concor is now a leading black-owned infrastructure and buildings services business based in South Africa and benefits from the 115 and 69 year legacies of Murray & Roberts Construction and Concor respectively.


Concor delivers innovative solutions to clients across a broad spectrum of capabilities including building, civils, roads and earthworks construction, opencast mining, property development and emerging capabilities within infrastructure operations and maintenance. We leverage these capabilities to deliver large, complex projects and services in rural and urban settings. Our ability to innovate to suit the environments in which we work has positioned Concor as a leading infrastructure services group in South Africa and selected African countries.


In order to effectively and efficiently deliver the above capabilities, Concor’s operations are structured into various business units aligned to the same purpose and vision, with good knowledge of their respective markets, clients and suppliers. These business units are backed by Concor’s brand, financial strength and Group-wide values, as well as centralised shared services systems, expertise and functionality.

Concor’s decentralised platform structure is characterised by an appropriate measure of delegation of authority and responsibility for day-to-day operations.

Each platform is headed by a operations executive and has its own administrative departments and other resources required to conduct its operations effectively.
