From GM Campbell & Associates to GMCA Engineers

After attaining his BSc Eng at the University of Pretoria, Prof. Eng. George MacKenzi Campbell was employed at Foskor Mining Company Ltd. as Chief Engineer for just under twenty years. This helped him build a trustworthy reputation with the mining industry in Phalaborwa and surrounds as well as numerous other industrially oriented industries. In 1993, he decided to use the expertise and experience he had accumulated in the past 20 years of service, as well as the in-depth knowledge of business administration taught in the MBA/MBL degree (which he had attained in 1982), to venture into the exciting world of entrepeneurship. He founded GM Campbell & Associates and started his business from home in Phalaborwa. He also hired technicians in order to assist him soon afterwards. These were mostly individuals retrenched from the mine in 1992, when the Rasionalisation program had been implemented. He also hired Mrs. Elmarie Horn. The business was blooming back in 1993, enjoying patronage from a wide spectrum of industries within the Phalaborwa area, as well as factories and establishment stretching all the way from Hoedspruit and Tzaneen, to Polokwane (then Pietersburg). The business could also afford to move into Foskor's Jack Kearney Offices Building in 1995 and stayed there until moving to 3 Impala street, Phalaborwa where they had been up until now. In 2003, Kaone Projects was established by GMCA Engineers as a solution to the BEE challenge.

Numerous successful projects and dozens of satisfied clients later, GMCA Engineers is still going from strength to strength, with the original branch in Phalaborwa and the Lydenburg branch established in early 2005. Mrs. Horn has been employed by GMCA Engineers for more than eleven years and has also been appointed as the General Manager of GMCA Engineers and head of the Lydenburg branch. She also inspired the change of name which occured in roughly 2000, motivating that the original name was too long and clumsy. GMCA Engineers is a sole proprietor with Prof. Eng. George Campbell still the active managing director.
